Daughter #1, dad and some friends went geocashing for the first time last weekend. They found 4 different hidden spots and got, bubbles, bouncy ball, tiny notebook and a joker card. DD loved and will doing it again with dad!!!

This is a description I found off the internet.

"So what is Geocashing? If you haven't heard of geocaching, it a hightech sport centered around use of handheld GPS navigation devices; a modern day treasure hunt! With geocaching the basic idea is to locate a cache by it's GPS coordinates posted on the Internet by those hiding the cache. The caches are containers that vary in size and contents. They may be as small as a film canister with a log in it, or as large as ammo boxes and even up to 5 gallon bucket size. A cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards and the "geocashers" exchange items left in the cache with items of their own. Finding a cache can be easy. Sometimes it's a challenge. For some the biggest reward is the thrill of the hunt and the discovery of locations they have never been. Sometimes just getting to the location of a cache is the reward itself."
