we love it! its great to explore our own area or a new one!
I have a friend and her husband whom are hooked on geocaching. Its great exercise and adds an element of fun to their evenings together. I need to get out and try this!
When Dearly Beloved and I walk on hard surface trails we take a tennis ball to kick back and forth between us. Gives a bit extra excitement on a trail we know well.
So much fun. We've even done the headquarters tour. :) The caches around Fremont are very creative.
I would love for my family & I to do this but we don't have a GPS or Smart Phone. :-(
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.
I much prefer Letterboxing; all the fun, but with more creativity. :-)
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.
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!
We use www.geocaching.com as for a GPS unit we use our phones and the site's app to find caches.
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?
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
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.
Geocaching is a blast! We found two caches at the Indiana Dunes! We used the Android App instead of a GPS.
