GEOCACHING

Geocaching is an outdoor activity, in which participants use a GPS device and other navigating techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world. Basically, you download a geocaching app, I use my smartphone, and it will locate caches that are near you. Then, you drive closer to them, get out and start walking, using the GPS to direct you where to go. Unfortunately you usually don’t really know exactly what you’re looking for. Some are very large and you get to take things out of the cache and replace it with something of yours. Some are very tiny (called micros) and may or may not even have paper inside for you to sign in that you have located it. You also log it into the app that you found it, and then you put the cache back exactly where you found it for the next person. This is an exciting (to me) activity for me to kill some time and get outdoors for a little while. My seven year old also loves it! We keep a backpack in my car full of different supplies such as Ziploc baggies, pens, and small toys or collectibles. I have also found two trackables. With these you go online and put in the tracking number to see where it was started and how it got to your location. It’s pretty neat, I encourage you all that are capable to give it a try. Keep calm and cache on! turtle shirt dog]]>
