Geocaching....!

Have you heard of Geocaching?  I had never heard of it ....until last weekend.  It is so fun and evidently has been around for years now.  It basically is treasure hunting with the use of a GPS.
There are treasures hidden all over the country and using clues given we found 4 different ones.  When you find the box, you can take one item, sign the guest book, and then leave a treasure.
Treasures are anything from kid's toys to...I've heard....money or keys to a car!
There are over 800,000 people doing this!  Amazing!
Check out their website for more information: Geocaching
Really fun!!

My husband and I used to go all the time around here in Ontario, its ALWAYS fun, especially digging around near rocks or in tree trunks to get the treasure and sign your name in a notebook left there :)

My Brother-in-law has been doing it for many years now. We went out with him once...it was a lot of fun.
Your little ones look like they are having fun.

we have homeschool friends that do a lot of geocaching, but we haven't since we don't have any GPS ... it does look like tons of fun. :)
