Its hard to know what’s important in life. We don’t notice the small stuff and we’ve never prepared for the big stuff. Then there’s the stuff in between. Mostly I just bumble along without a clue. MAYBE THAT’S WHY I LIKE TO GEOCACHE. Geocaching is some of that in between stuff. It’s not near as important as hunting, fishing or 4 wheeling, but a lot more interesting than listening to bobble
heads on TV. If you are an outdoors person and have not yet discovered geocaching you need to catch up. Geocaching is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure. A cacher can place a cache anywhere, pinpoint the location with a GPS and then share that info through the internet. Go to geocaching.com to learn all you need to get started. Also on that site is an enormous inventory of geocache sites all around your local area and the world waiting for you to discover.
My eight year old grandson thinks that it is just like going on a real life treasure hunt. We enjoy adding geocaching to any of our local or out of area trips we take as another menu activity. Many of the cache sites are located at a “special place” that we might never discover on our own. It could be a vista ,a unique land form, a beautiful scene, or some other attribute that sets the place apart.
Not only do you get to sharpen your GPS and map reading skills, once you arrive at the GPS cordinates looking for the cache is a fun challenge. Finding the actual treasure is always rewarding.
Apart from the obvious I’ve wondered why do I geocache. Is it man’s purpose on earth to express himself, to bring form to thought, and to discover meaning? Or is it just something to do when I’m bored?
