Geocaching

Recently, Mike and I have taken up the hobby of geocaching. There are more than 96,000 geocaches hidden throught the world.

I bought him a hand held GPS unit for Christmas.

We weren't very good at it when we first started. There are a few tricks to learn, but we're catching on.



I also bought him Geocaching for Dummies. That seems to be helping, too.



At first, we were really discouraged that we couldn't find any. Then we changed our outlook. We started viewing it as an activity we can do together outside in the sunshine. If we happen to find geocaches, that's just a bonus.



Now that we've been at it for a few weeks, we are finding more and more caches.



And we get to spend time together outside in the sunshine.

Hi you should move the , over a bit!
As of today there are 965,889 official geocaches in the world.
But you are right there's a lot more than 96,000!
Thanks for giving me a giggle!
