As the Pokemon-go frenzy sweeps the world, I’d like to draw your attention to a much better, grown up adventure app called GEO-CACHING
uses GPS to locate caches hidden by people in interesting locations worldwide, off the beaten track where you wouldn’t normally go. The cache usually is a small container with a little notepad to be signed and sometimes a little reward- the idea being you take something and replenish it with something of yours for the next person. It’s a modern day treasure hunt!
Last Saturday my boyfriend surprised me when we were out for a spin and took me on my first hunt.
I’m not going to lie, it was actually so exciting! The GPS gave us directions to a cache nearby and once we were close we got out to walk the rest of the way. The app gives a difficulty rating on both the terrain and how hard the cache will be to find.When you reach the destination the app gives you a cryptic clue to where the cache can be found and the rest is down to you!
Our hunt led us to a beautiful secluded stream and I literally jumped up and down when I spotted the cache. The book contained signatures of people from all over the world, one name had Egypt written after it! Once the book was signed we enjoyed the scenery for a while before heading home. I’m already looking forward to our next hunt!
