  • I would love for my family & I to do this but we don't have a GPS or Smart Phone. :-( - 4/16/2015 3:26:04 PM
  • I've never done anything like that before. Sounds fun! My daughter & I love to go for hikes. We always come home with something in our pockets from our walk & we put it in our "Nature's Treasure' box. It could be a rock, feather, pinecone, interesting piece of wood, etc. - 4/13/2015 10:16:53 AM
  • I much prefer Letterboxing; all the fun, but with more creativity. :-) - 4/11/2015 7:48:46 PM
  • I love geocaching! Last summer I averaged 10 miles/day of walking every time I went caching in New York City. The cool part is that it never felt like 10 miles. Of course a lot of those steps were spent walking around in circles trying to actually locate the cache's hiding spot. - 4/11/2015 5:17:48 AM
  • A friend introduced me to this about 4-5yrs ago, it was fun at the time, but had forgotten about this until now, thanks for the reminder! - 4/10/2014 11:11:56 AM
  • We use www.geocaching.com as for a GPS unit we use our phones and the site's app to find caches. - 3/31/2014 2:01:38 PM

    I've never done this but I would love to! I don't know where to get started though. Is there a website that everyone uses? - 3/31/2014 11:16:55 AM
  • I have done some geocaching with my Brother and Niece. This is a great family sport for the kids that are on the computers and watching TV all the time.They find it a lot of fun - 3/31/2014 8:24:53 AM
  • The past few years I have been around RVers and Snowbirds...many love geocaching. They are a fun upbeat group with an adventure ready to go at a moments notice. I love that it's multi-generational too. - 2/4/2014 12:50:24 AM
  • Geocaching is a blast! We found two caches at the Indiana Dunes! We used the Android App instead of a GPS. - 10/31/2013 8:18:53 PM
  • We did some geocaching for a Women's Event Night at our church. It was so fun and great practice. Now I need to find that GPS I bought my husband that he never used. Where is it? - 10/4/2013 11:19:26 AM
  • when looking for the hidden items, please be careful esp. if it's in the country.
    I saw someone hiding an item near where we live and warned them of snakes. - 10/3/2013 6:10:01 PM
  • There's geocaches everyone. We have over 900 within a 15 mile radius of our apartment. Also, if you have a smartphone, forget the GPS. The geocaching app is $10 in the App Store (no idea about Marketplace) and is worth every single penny. - 10/3/2013 9:09:04 AM
  • I was bummed that the website is not here any more. - 6/24/2013 6:38:36 PM
  • Sounds good for someone who lives in an area where it will work. - 5/22/2013 7:05:36 AM
