We're offically treasure hunters!

As a family, we went geocaching after dinner.
We found the cache, took pictures for prosperity reasons, signed the log, and came home.
We came home hooked on Geocaching.
If you dont know where I am, I'm probably looking for a treasure somewhere :)

Samanatha - It's treasure hunting & hide-and-seek combined! From wiki: "Geocaching is an outdoor sporting activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook where the geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name. Larger containers such as plastic storage containers (tupperware or similar) or ammo boxes can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaching is often described as a "game of high-tech hide and seek," sharing many aspects with benchmarking, trigpointing, orienteering, treasure-hunting, letterboxing, and waymarking."
