Geocaching: Her Family’s Weekend Treasure Hunt
07 Sep, 2012
I loved scavenger hunts as a kid. My favorites were at birthday parties. We would arrive and exchange our gifts for a paragraph of clues about the objects we needed to find. And even though I’m in my 30′s, I still love solving the mystery or recovering another clue.
If you love a good hunt, don’t mind hiking all over Nebraska and know how to use GPS, chances are you will love GEO CACHING!
What is Geo Caching
Its known at a GPS stash hunt which involves finding hidden items. These hidden items are stashed in locations that can be found with a Global Positioning Satellite. And if you have an Iphone, there is an app for it And yes Android does it too!
There is also Virtual Caching: Virtual Caching involves locating not a cache, but a specific landmark, feature, park sign, etc. State parks of Nebraska have some rules and regulations to be observed and you can find out more about it here, but for the most part; its a fun way to pass time with your family while enjoying the great outdoors.
Where is the next big Geo Cache?
Sept 30th in Norfolk. After a big breakfast, the hunt is on. Visit this cache event at Northeast Nebraska Geocachers.
