We have always enjoyed geocaching, so we decided to spend the afternoon treasure hunting. Finding the first one was an adventure in itself because both of the boys had a GPS and they were leading us all over the place. It took them a little while to figure out which way to go, but before too long they led us to our first location near the old schoolhouse. The kids dug through the tube and found treasures to trade with things they had brought from home.
As we were approaching our second location, we saw what looked like a small school group. As we got closer, though, we saw that it was a couple of families out enjoying the day together. They were geocaching as well and it just so happened that we were all looking for the same treasure. They had been looking for a little while and were not having any luck finding it. William ended up spotting it in a hole in a tree. So again, all the kids traded treasures and we were once again on our way.
We are right in the middle of a state park and there are hundreds of geocaches here, but we only found the two today. Over the course of our stay we should be able to find many more. We like to go for walks and geocaches are a good way to add a little extra fun along the way.
