Playing hide and seek, anyone?

Have you heard of geocaching (pronounced geo-cashing)? I was introduced to this activity by my employer while we were on a job stint at Mystery Creek. Her daughter and grandchildren have been actively participating in geocaching. Val described in detail what it was all about during one of our lunch breaks and I decided to google about this new thing. There were heaps of stuff to digest from the net.

Geocaching is like playing hide and seek, played worldwide. It’s a craze that is taking the world!!Instead of you hiding, you have to find objects or treasures that other members of the group (the geocachers) have hidden. You definitely need a GPS to help locate a ‘treasure’. When you have found the ‘treasure’, you need to sign a logbook and return the geocache to its original location.

In geocaching, there are rules such as “If you take something from the cache, you have to leave something of equal or greater value, and write about your find in the cache logbook”.

I find this hide and seek adventure rather interesting for a family-get-together. Why don’t you give this a try? I’m sure I will.

Geocaching, a fun game for everyone Normally, the geocache is put in a container or a plastic wrap
