Geocaching

Recommended Posts

We're away this weekend on the Yorks Lancs border (disputed territory, the UN have a presence).

 

Despite this, we had a great walk by the River Wenning today which the kids loved due to our first foray into geocaching. We found 7 caches, some very well hidden!

 

Just wondered if others did this?

 

Tips, app choice, etc.

We do!  Our thirty year old kids got us into it and we now often geocaches while away in the van.   For those who do not know what it is... it is like a treasure hunt using GPS to find the hidden locations.  They are set by locals who know the area well and take you to some interesting and off the beaten track places. There are thousands around and can be found all over the world.  For more info see  www.geocaching.com/play/search

 

We just use our phones with the Geocaching app.

 

Tips....        1. Reading some of the previous logs can give clues.  2. Down load set of caches to phone before setting off.  3.  Have a small kit containing tweezers, pencil or pen, gloves and maybe baby wipes.    

Have fun!

My health won’t let me but I think it’s a fantastic thing to do.  Enjoy it.
