Geocaching – First Time Out

The kids and I tried geocaching for the first time today. If you haven't heard of it before, think of it as a real-life, GPS-based treasure hunt. People hide containers and post the GPS coordinates online. Your job is to find the container. They always contain a small log book you can sign, and sometimes they contain trinkets - if you take one, you leave one. The kids loved it - especially the part where the GPS tells you that you're in the right place and you have to start searching every nook and cranny in the area to find the container. We found four caches today, and the photo on the right shows the stuff we brought home from the caches we found. Hopefully the next people to find them like what we left ourselves! If you want to know more about it, here is the link to the main site:
