Geo Caching

So I was watching the news yesterday morning and they mentioned this 'game' called Geo Caching. Geo caching is an entertaining adventure game for GPS users. Participating in a cache hunt is a good way to take advantage of the wonderful features and capability of a GPS unit. The basic idea is to have individuals and organizations set up caches all over the world and share the locations of these caches on the Internet. GPS users can then use the location coordinates to find the caches. Once found, a cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards. All the visitor is asked to do is if they get something they should try to leave something for the cache. It sounds super fun, like pirates trying to find buried treasure. I told Ryan about it and we are going to try it one of these days. I think I'll go to the dollar store and pick up something that we can leave in the cache. They story on the news was saying that you can track your stuff, like you could put a note saying you want your toy truck that you place in there to travel from San Diego to Peru (and they can take pictures of it along the way). There are tons of caches all over the world. Check out the website I will update you guys on when we do it. I think we should be Team Pirates (or Team Booty, like pirates stealing the booty).
