|Our first cache find|
|"Honoring Granny cache"|
|Ryan found this one!|
Geocaching is a fun way to explore places in your city or town that you never knew were there. Discover history of the area and can explore nature and do some fun hiking.
We carry our Geocaching bag that holds bug spray, a pen for signing the cache logs that are inside each of the caches. We carry little trinkets for trading (when needed), our journal, a camera, snacks and water. We turn on our smartphone GPS, map out our coordinates, check our clues and head out.
|We looked for this one for 20 minutes! Grrr!! :)|
|Can you see this one? It is hiding on the phone pole.|
It is like a worldwide scavenger hunt. So fun!! If you travel to different areas of the country or world, there are little "travel bugs" that you can deposit in other areas. The person that starts the travel bug has a destination in mind where they would like the travel bug to travel. Sometimes they deposit the travel bug on their travels in hopes that it will make it "home." It is so neat! We have recently picked up a travel bug who is headed for the Netherlands. We are going to Myrtle Beach soon and are planning on depositing it there, in hopes that someone will pick it up and send it on its way.
