Geocaching Thread...

Does anyone here like to Geocache?

 

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.

 

Go to Geocaching.com to find out more. I love Geocaching.

Geocaching.com has lots of how-to videos, but they also have an easy-to-use app for Apple/Android. You don't even need a GPS to geocache: just download the app! The app finds the coordinates for you, you do not need to type them in.

 

I hope this helps!

I found out about it the June before last. I'm an outdoorsy guy and I love the joy of finding a cache. I also enjoy hiding them.

My son had done it a couple of times and liked it very much.  I still don't "get it,"  but, IF I did, he probably wouldn't do it anymore.

It's been awhile since my husband has done this, however I used to enjoy going Geocaching with him.  Maybe he will pick it up again in the future, when he's not so busy!!

I've done it before! My friend and I are planning to do one that involves hiking at a mountain near our house.
