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.
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.
It is so much fun! It's like urban treasure hunting. If you're like me and need motivation to step up your walking you find a bunch of caches in a line and start caching, my hubby and I walked over 5 miles one day while we were caching and it didn't feel like we were "working out"
Letterboxing and Geocaching are both fun for all ages. The thrill of the hunt and the rush of the FTF , nothing like it and until you try it. There is no words to make you realize how much fun you you can have in an afternoon.

Leave the GPS at home and try letterboxing!!! Use your brain to solve the clues to find the location of the box.
Go to atlasquest.com or letterboxing.org for more details.
