What is Geocaching you ask? Well, geocaching (pronounced geocashing) is essentially a GPS guided "treasure hunt." Here's how the official geocaching website describes it:
"Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by
adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden
containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. "
All I did was to sign up for free on the official site, type in our zip code, and hundreds of geocache sites popped up. We just had to find one that looked easy enough for kids. Luckily, one cache was located in a near-by park.
So, off we went.
Daddy and Claire following the GPS coordinates.
We re-hid the cache for the next seekers, and spent the rest of the morning together, walking the trails, and spying on some wildlife.
And since it was in a park, Shawn and the kids played on the playground while I got a few miles in on the running path.
