Treasure Hunt

Have you ever heard of geocaching?  Well, don't feel bad if you haven't.  Until I got to know my Hermit friend, neither did I.  Thanks to her, I blew my husband away.  When he asked me if I knew what geocaching was, I simply yes.  He just stared at me for about 30 seconds like he couldn't believe I knew about this.  It was quite amusing!  Like I have a secret life or something.  Well I do, but we won't tell right.  I kid.

We went on our first geocahing adventure.  And guess what?  There's an app for that!  And if you have a Droid, you can go to your market and get the same thing.  We're all friends here. 

It was a small find.  A find that wouldn't "Stump" us.  So we had to find a tree stump.  We were looking for smallish tree stumps.  Then I saw the sad remains of a fallen tree.  Well now, that is a bigger stump of a tree.  And then I saw something and pointed it out to Rich.  We found the hidden treasure!  Inside the little painted bottle:  a pencil, a car, and a piece of paper to sign.  We didn't bring anything to add since we are newbs, but I happen to have brought a pencil and paper and we each drew or wrote something on the paper to add to the cache.  It was a fun little adventure and we plan on doing it again.


What adventures have you had lately?

My family is really into geocaching. It is a little treasure hunt. So very fun for the kids, and not half bad for the adults, either! How much fun is that to be able to sort of stump your hubby! Love that.

How fun! I have heard of it and we've talked about trying it but haven't yet. I'll have to download that app.
