Our family has started Geocaching and we have already done it 3 times in 2 days. It is so simple! Here is a picture from our first 'find'.
The first thing you need to do is go to www.geocaching.com and register. So far we are just doing the free membership but if we keep doing it we may do the paid version.
Once you are registered click on the 'play' tab and select Hide and Seek a Cache". (Frame2)
One the next page you can type in your address or zip code and specify a mile radias. I did 15 miles and we got over 3000 results.....now that's a lot of fun!!!
OK step 2 is to download the APP to your phone so you can navigate to each find. There is an official app but it cost money. I used an APP titled C.GEO and logged on with our Geocaching name and password.
The only thing I couldn't find on the free app was a place to log that we found a site. It was not a big deal though, we just logged our finds when we got home using the computer.
One more thing......super important....you also need a pen so you can add your name to the list that you found the site. We forgot on the 2nd one and played rock/paper/scissors on who was going back to the car for a pen!!
That's it...you are ready for your first adventure!!
It was super fun. The whole family went and we were laughing so hard. At one point we were literally walking in circles...it was so funny. We found all 3 geocaches and on the walk back to the car we discovered this little guy.....
I'm not sure you can see it, but Bryson is looking at a teeny tiny baby rabbit by the branch.
I hope you have as much fun as we did!!!
