I'm ready to start searching for my next cache!

On a recent bike ride with Debbie and her husband, Polly #2 helped to find her first cache and now she’s hooked! She can’t wait for her next opportunity to spend the day enjoying her new hobby!

  1. What did you find?

  2. Polly #5,

    Thanks for asking…we found a tiny micro cache with only a log inside where we documented our find. Have you ever gone geocaching? It’s a lot of fun and I think you’d like it!

  3. What exactly is geocaching?

  4. Geocaching is a game of hiding and seeking treasure, using GPS technology. The game is played all over the world and is a fun way to use technology while enjoying exercise and the outdoors.

    A geocache is placed by a geocacher who then pinpoints where it is using GPS technology. The location of the geocache is then put online for others to try to find. They can range in difficulty from very easy to very difficult and come in all shapes and sizes. It can become very addictive for geocachers and many have either hidden or found hundreds of caches. The rules are fairly simple, but basically if you take something out of the cache, you should replace it with something and also log in the included logbook that you were there and found the cache.

    Another aspect of geocaching is the use of trackables. One type of trackable is a Travel Bug, which is a trackable that moves from place to place and is usually on some type of a mission. When you find a trackable, you should try to accomplish part of the mission and document what you’ve done to help it achieve it’s goal.

  5. This is the first I’ve heard of geocaching, but it sounds like a great hobby.
