To locate the caches, you are given the latitude and longitude of the cache. Once you get to that location... the hunt is on! It's actually harder than it sounds!! We are still such noob's to this.. and our ignorance is just cracking us up! To seasoned geocachers, they can view the area and determine pretty closely where they think it will be hidden. But then there are always the clever hiders... you never know where you might have to look! And the KEY is doing it without being obvious and giving away the secret to observers! These guys were looking for a cache in Australia... and their post about it was pretty funny!! Check it out!
Dan and I spent the whole day on our scooters... hunting caches within a mile of our house. There were 9 all within a mile! Had a ball!! Then went "skydiving", and home for a juicy steak dinner with the family. :) It was a pretty awesome day!
This last Sunday after church, we took the kids caching and turned them onto the thrill of the hunt! There were 3 or 4 in a park that we used to live by. Oh my! We spent 4 hours traipsing around and hunting! It was TONS of fun!! Just being outside on a beautiful day... being together as a family, and doing a scavenger hunt along a creek, with tunnels and lots of wild life... it was perfect! :)
That's it for today. I'll be posting about my auction finds from last week, tomorrow!
Hope you have a wonderful day! xo Bren :)
Ps... Tammy... I can't help but think of you and kenny with all those awesome trails and lakes you take the dogs to - how fun to treasure hunt at the same time in that area!! LOL.. or are you guys not as nerdy as us?? :D
And Michelle - with as much as you travel and run and bike?!? You would be marking them all over the world!!
Oops almost forgot! Got this pic from Gav the other day... a stormy day in St. Thomas.
