Geocaching - Fun Micro Adventures...
So you are dying for an adventure, but you are short on time and/or money. Maybe it's just not possible for you to get away for the weekend, but you have several hours you can burn. Maybe you should try geocaching.
What is this crazy phenomena know as geocaching, you ask? Well simply put, Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. It's kind of like land navigation meets treasure hunting meets hiking, biking, or skiing. It can be a lot of fun for you, or your family. In fact, there is an entire world-wide community of geocachers out there.
A geocache, in its simplest form, always contains a logbook for you to log your find. Larger caches may contain a logbook and any number of items. These items turn the adventure into a true treasure hunt. You never know what the cache owner or visitors to the cache may have left for you to enjoy, if you take something, leave something of equal or greater value in return.
Pretty simple huh? If you are interested in Geocaching and want to become part of a world-wide community of adventurers, then check out http://www.geocaching.com/ for more details, instruction, sign up, and everything else you need to know.
