So, I was chillin’ on Facebook Monday morning (Memorial Day), when I saw that a local friend of mine posted that she and her family were going GeoCaching for the first time that day. I SO wanted to try it too — after having learned a bit about it while reading up on Letterboxing over a year ago. The weather was perfect for it … and we had no plans of any other kind for the day … so I just downloaded a GPS app for my iPhone, plugged in some coordinates, and headed out to discover hidden treasures throughout Bangor.
Our second geocache search (and ultimately our last for the day) was a success! Our GPS brought us to within a 100 foot radius of the stash (located in one of our favorite Bangor parks) and within about 20 min, Halis discovered the stash tucked away in a log. It was super exiting for all of us!
I SO look forward to finding every stash in our city … and discovering so many little nooks that we never knew about prior to GeoCaching (which seems to be one of the greatest benefits to this “sport”). What a great way to enjoy the outdoors, do some exploring, role play the whole pirate/Indiana Jones thing a bit, and get some fun booty … not to mention spend some quality time with your family.
Geocaching is simply awesome. Try it! Maybe we will see you “on the trail”!
