It was a #Geocache weekend

I love geocaching and it was such a beautiful weekend. We decided to spend the weekend hitting collecting some the geocaches around. On Saturday we went some of the local ones awe could walk to. On Sunday we drove to some of the further ones away. Some were over an hour away.

Cub Scouts Goe cache. And We Found our first tracker!

 

This one is from the park by my house. I have been looking for this one for a year. Who would have thought to look in a bolt.

 

This one is the bridge by home. It was in the storm drain, hanging by fishing line. Very clever.

 

 

 

A cute park, not too far from my moms. Left the trackers here. It is 20 miles from where it started.

 

Joey found this creep crawly one. Jimmy following the first rule of Geo Caching… picking up trash. Cache in- Trash out!

 

Talk about micro caches. See how tiny that is, and it was tucked in behind a power box against a building. It was so hard to see. I didn’t even know they made them that small until we saw that one.

 

This was a virtual cache because the idea was to see this cool monument. It has a giant compartment in the back. It was actually big enough for Joey to fit in, of course he wanted to try it, that is the first thing he thinks of as soon as he see a hole anywhere. He did the same thing with a tree too.

This was our first multi cache and it was a disaster. We never did find the 2nd cache. Our phones died. Jim aggrevated his knee. We were just done by the time the phones gave out. We will have to go back and try again. I am not sure what happened. WHen we enter the coordinates into the map it just didn’t work well. We are getting a better GPS ¬†soon for Jimmy’s new job so maybe that will work better. Here’s hoping.

  5. I have heard about Geocaching, but I’m still not quite sure what it is. What is in the box? A prize? How do you find the items and what are the items you are looking for exactly?

    • Each box contains something different. Some are just a log to write your name on, some have a give and take type system, bring something to leave, and take something from the box. You find them using a GPS and the coordinates are on the geocaching.com website. It is a lot of fun. There are geocaches all around the world.
