Today the kids and I went Geocaching. Geocaching is the recreational activity of hunting for and finding a hidden object by means of GPS coordinates posted on a website. This activity was part of my life list and I can now update the date!
The first search was conducted at a park near our home. We used my phone in order to find the coordinates of the hidden object.
It was hard to know what to look for but the description and hints were extremely helpful. Be sure to read up on Geocaching etiquette and terms.
We moved to our second location to a business park further down the road and found this one in a muddy field. Our shoes and socks got wet but the kids had fun getting messy.
We had so much fun looking for these that we plan on hunting for more in the coming weeks. I will be taking a vacation soon so I plan on looking for more objects where I will be headed.
Have you tried Geocaching? If so what was your experience?
