geocaching

I had an amazing experience geocaching with my friend the other day. For anyone who doesn't know, geocaching is basically the world’s largest scavenger hunt. All over the word, people hide caches. These can range in difficulty in finding it, the terrain of where it's located, or the size of the container. They contain a log book of all the people that have found the cache. The larger containers have a little treat inside-usually some little unique gadget-that are there for when the person(s) find the cache, they take something from the inside, write in the log book, & replace it with something else of their own. Now you may be wondering: how do you find the geocache? Simply download an app (not the $10 one, I have Cachebot) and it will navigate the cache by GPS. Thanks to our handy-dandy smart phones that have a built in compass, and GPS, this is possible. However, in some cases the GPS WAS TOTALLY OFF AND IT WAS SO FRUSTRATING SEARCHING ON THE GROUND IN A PILE OF LEAVES FOR A HALF HOUR WHEN IT WAS HANGING ON A TREE 20 YARDS AWAY. Anyways, I would like to thank all of those who made this experience possible. If one had not helped define Longitude and Latitude, create the first satellite, discover the poles, invent the smartphone technology, I would not have gone on this adventure. Science rules.

It's been a few years since I last did this, but I bet my little girls would love going on a geocaching "treasure hunt."  Great reminder!
