Family Time Fitness

Friday, July 01, 2011

My family and I just recently tried out a new activity we heard about. It has been around for around 10 years now, but I'm just finding out about it. It's called Geocaching. For those who haven't heard about it (like me), it involves using a GPS to locate hidden containers all around the world. It's a neat activity. At minimum the containers have a log book for you to sign that you found it. Some have small trade-able items, and there are even little tracking items that people put in them that you can log on the website and see where all it has been. You then take it, put it in another cache somewhere and watch where else it might go. My kids love this as to them it's like a treasure hunt. I love it because it gets our whole family out in the woods/parks/trails/etc. We are doing family fitness and it is a blast. What can be better than spending some quality time with your wife and kids WHILE getting in some fitness???
