I have posted before about this GPS-Internet global scavenger hunt called Geocaching.
You can track my progress in the sidebar, I am at 119 "finds" as of today.
This past weekend, I hunted caches with my friend Mike three days in a row. It occurs to me that some might be interested in what this game is about. So here is a sampling.
Many times, hunting a cache takes us to picturesque location. Part of the fun in hiding a cache is bringing people somewhere they wouldn't normally go. Today, we were in Suffolk, VA, and parked in front of this "cottage," a few hundred feet from the cache.
Later that afternoon, we hunted a cache at restored train station. The container was hidden under this car.
This is a typical "ammo can" cache, found under the railroad car. They are filled with trinkets, toys, and other fun items for trade. There is also a log book to sign and read. Some caches are much smaller, with only room for a small scroll of paper to sign.
This is another cache, a plastic screw top container. It has been covered in camo tape to make it harder to see, so it won't be stolen by somebody not playing the game.
Finally, the most important part. Sign the log. We do this at 99% of the caches we find. It's also fun to see who has been there before.
