Hey guys,

As you know from my last post I’m in California (Los Angeles to be exact) working with my Dad.  Hollywood has been fun: we’ve done some quick sightseeing and hit the hotel pool to cool down, but alas, I still have work to do.  I have to go GEOCACHING and place that Travel Bug I found in Maryland a few months ago.

Well, here is my Geocaching video roll: Hope you enjoy!

Geocaching: What Do I Need to Get Started? (part 2/5)

Part 2: Getting Started. I’ll cover topics such as:

  • What you need to get started
  • Where to find the GPS coordinates for the CACHES? and maybe even
  • provide some links (by state) for more fun.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Okay, so you THINK you might be interested in Geocaching but need more information.  That’s what this post is for.  Let’s begin quickly, someone else is out there finding your treasure!

There’s treasure in the box!

So, what DO you need to get started?

Here’s the list (in no particular order):

Willing spirit to go outside.  I know that seems like a big deal, but my parents tell me that getting away from the technology is a good thing; so, let’s go breathe some fresh air.

Transportation.  Although Geocaching is fun to walk to, there probably aren’t more than a few in your neighborhood.  But the good news is: there probably ARE some caches located everywhere you currently go.  The grocery store, the local park, the library and even parking lots have some (Please be careful in parking lots; I almost got run over by a car in a parking lot and it was NO fun!)

A GPS.  Yes, you really do need one, but many things count as a GPS.  Mom might have one in her car already.  Mom’s phone (if it’s smart) may be able to download a GPS app (more about that later), or you may want to splurge and buy a hand-held GPS.  I own a Garmin GPS and  I think they are the best on the market.

A Geocaching.com account.  Geocaching.com is the largest geocaching website with over 7 million logs being submitted each month and over 1.4 million caches listed around the world.  Geocaching.com offers lots of information about geocaching, the rules, as well as geocaching supplies. The good news is that the account is free and Mom and Dad will like that!

This video will describe what to do when you get to Geocaching.com!

What is Geocaching?

Closed shoes.  Going outside is fun but tracking through the woods in flip-flops is NOT.

Mom and Dad.  This is NOT something you want to try on your own, or go on your own.  You’ll need supervision and if you bring Mom and Dad it’s more fun anyway.

So, gather your items: shoes, Mom and Dad, a GPS, a car, and go get that Geocaching account.

 

Geocaching with Sam: Can you find it?

Geocaching is fun!  Finding treasure is funnier!  and sometimes the clues are… (well, you decide)

Here was the clue to this cache:

If you can’t find this one, Geocaching might not be for you!

So, let’s take a look: can you find it?

Yup, sometimes they are just that easy!

Go geocaching!

Geocaching in Virginia: What’s in the ammo box?

GEOCAHCING is like having a birthday!

Every time we go geocaching, I’m excitedly thinking, “What’s in the box?  What’s in the box?”

It reminds me of Blue’s Clues:

Blue's clues

Who remembers Blue’s Clue?

Present time, present time. Open it up and see what’s inside…

Well, on my last Geocaching adventure I found some neat stuff. Let’s see what’s inside…

See I told you it was neat!
