Geocaching: my latest obsession
So I started googling and after I did my research I realize oh my gosh this seems like a lot of fun!
The second geocache we found was actually in town in a very very open spot is right next to my local gym in fresh market hiding in a rather large birdhouse in a tree towards the back of the buildings was our geocache we opened it up and it was a little Tupperware container that had a login it as well as some trinkets rings and actually candy I don’t recommend leaving candy in the geocache but it was interesting to say the least.
The last geocache we found was hiding in a bush the coordinates were spot on and the directions were precise so it was not hard to fine but it’s always sketchy to dig and bushes you never know what kind of bugs are critters are actually living in there not sure if I’m a fan of anything I have to dig through simply for safety reasons.
We did however search for three more the other day and didn’t find any of them other people had lodge them online as finding them recently and we were in the exact spot but we did not find them so maybe we are just too new to the game but I found this to be rather difficult even though they were listed as level ones.
Here’s what you need for a good geocaching trip.
Comfortable shoes because you’re probably going to be doing a lot of walking
A fully charged cell phone because I use the app to navigate to the coordinates of the hidden geocache
A pen because some geocaches are not big enough to hold a pen or they get taken by a different person
Bottled water whenever you’re out looking for a geocache you want to make sure that you have enough hydration even if you’re only doing something short if you become addicted to it and you find that you don’t want to leave without actually finding it would you causes you to stick around longer make sure you bring a snack and water with you to stay healthy
Tradables because if you find something cool in there that you want to take remember the rule is that you must replace it was something of yours make sure you bring some cool trinkets to replace it with
Did I miss any tips on Geocaching? have you tried it is this something that you would try there are millions of geocaches hidden all over the world and it’s really cool to sign them and leave them be tons of people leave their names and the date so you know who is just there I find it fascinating and a fun way to get outside and spend time with your family and kids of course all my Geocaching is done with my family and we have a blast of course we get a little frustrated when we don’t find one but otherwise it’s really fun and a great activity for fall.
