I've just recently started getting into geocaching. Anyone do this for fun?
For those who haven't heard of it, you basically punch in GPS coordinates on your handheld GPS unit, and they will lead you to within 10-50 feet of a "cache" that someone has hidden (usually in the woods off the trail of a park, but some other interesting places as well).
The "cache" is usually an ammo box or tupperware container, well-hidden, that contains a log book and other trinkets. When you find it, you sign the log book, and take something and leave something if you'd like. Then you post on-line that you found it, etc.
Since I love to hike, and need to learn to use my GPS unit better, it's a good fit. It's like a little treasure hunt. We went out Tuesday, and found our very first 2 caches (in the same park, but almost a mile apart). It was a ton of fun.
And then, I find out that one of those caches was hidden by my next-door neighbor. Literally, the family living next door to me. How strange is THAT?
