My World Tuesday - Geocaching Part Two


Attempt Number One at this geocaching lark was a bit of a wash out. Well, perhaps washout is the wrong word. It was a snowout.

So let us try again.

First, stare at the GPS thingy and then start hunting around the (hopefully correct) area ....

A-ha! What's this hiding here?

Yay! Success - an official "find".

Oh, bless! Some child gave up his Hot Wheels. Now that's dedicated!
Various mini goodies inside and little writing pad to sign in and say that you have visited.

So excited at actually finding something, we head off for another one a couple of miles away.

A hidey hole in a tree, tastefully modelled by Daughter Number One, with Daughter Number Two looking somewhat perplexed.

And what's inside? Yay! - another success story.

Husband is hooked on this new game. I suspect it may be time for some more difficult caches. You know - half-way-up-a-mountain type difficult.

  7. I have a friend who does this, and it really does look like fun. You're kind of getting me interested here!
    The only thing I DON'T miss about Alberta is the crazy spring weather. Just when you think winter is finally over (usually in May) you get the biggest blizzard of the year! It's infuriating!

  8. Sounds like fun. We use a GPS on our quad rides. A friend created waypoints and tracks that he gave us. It makes exploring a lot safer for us newbies in teh bush. - Margy
