Our first Geocaching adventure!

So anyone been Geocaching before?

It’s something I had planned to do with the kids for a long time after watching an interview on BBC Breakfast a while back. If you don’t know what it is then this is the lowdown. Taking from the Geocaching Website. http://www.geocaching.com/

GEOCACHING is a free real-world outdoor treasure hunt. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using a smartphone or GPS and can then share their experiences online.

The thing with geocaching is that it’s free! All you need is an device that has GPS on it. I use my iPhone 3G and it works super great! The app is free on iTunes, and you can also get apps for Blackberry and Android.

We went out on our first adventure a few weeks back and we were very successfull, but that oesn’t mean we are gonna stop, we intend to go back straight on the trail after our holdiay.

Anyone a Geocacher? Anyone thinking about doing it? Or comparing Geocach finds? Leave a comment! Tell us your stories!
