First geo-caching adventure success!

With everything closed on the holiday the shop-a-holics were left with little to do… Except one thing they’ve been wanting to checkout for years. Geo caching.

ge·o·cach·ing
ˈjēōˌkaSHiNG/
noun
the recreational activity of hunting for and finding a hidden object by means of GPS coordinates posted on a website.

So today I downloaded the app from geocaching.com and found a few right near our house (and in the way to Tim Hortons!). The kid gathered a few “treasures she could pass along, and we were off.

We followed Google maps until we went off the trail, and then had to use the app compass to find the exact spot.

Let me tell you, this one took us a bit because we had no idea what we were looking for, but eventually we got down into the muck and saw it really was simple.

Bee made the log notes and I transferred the loot.

A good day. And a good discovery of yet another trail just around the corner.
