Fun in the rain???

Geocaching or geocaching.com is a world wide treasure hunt. You enter coordinates into your gps and then walk around a hunt the treasure. You make an account on the website and then you log your finds. It's a lot of fun for the whole family and great exercise. You may think your just gonna get out of the car and walk over to a tree and you find yourself walking clear across a yard, park or trail before you know it. Above- This is called a micro.. it was screwed to a stick that stuck down in a stunk (below)..very clever.

We found a travel bug geo.. Dad will take it home and place it ours that we hid up there so it can move on.
This one had all kinds of treasures in it including the travel bug. Play doh- key chains- McDonald toys.

Can you find the cache?
This little thing had a big surprise..
This snake jumped out at us when she opened it.
I was off looking in the wrong spot when my mom found it.. before I could get over there I heard them both scream. Here baby monster is saying Oooopen iiiit.

Mom and Dad signing the log for another one found.

Yes a little bug, nano or micro as they are called was hidden in the fence.. Would ya ever think to stop and check a fence post?
Couple hints for beginners. Wear old shoes, make up a fanny pack with pens, and trickets to leave behind or trade. Have a place for your gps, phone and camera. I don't know how many times I've gotten out of the car and had to go back for a pen. Come up with a system on how to orgnaize your trail or you'll be driving all over and missing so many. The picture above, we went to a park but I didn't realize there were 2 more in the park. I was there and now have to go back..well if I want the find. ~Cathy
