Good character is taught and caught and the new DVD series Samuel L. Collins and the Search for Biblical Truths, helps you do both. Imagine a DVD series combining the fun adventure of a Young Raiders of the Lost Ark, the high-tech gadgetry of Mission Impossible and the Scriptural conviction of Bibleman. All of those elements are masterfully interwoven throughout Samuel L. Collins and The Search for Biblical Truths, a product line designed to reach Christian children and tweens.

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:
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!
Many of my friends wish they could tag along on my adventures around the world….
and I must admit it’s amazing to travel to the places I’ve been, but Geocaching is a great adventure of it’s own. And it happens in every corner of the world, so even if the nearest State Park is the farthest from home you’ll ever get, you too CAN have your own FAMILY ADVENTURE….
So, in honor of SUMMER and VACATIONS, I’m going to write a series of blog posts that describe the “how-to’s” and “Joys” of GEOCACHING…
Geocaching: What is it? (part 1)
So, what is this family-fun activity? It’s part ‘treasure-hunting’ part ‘scavenger hunting’ and part ‘hiking’.
Small and large ‘treasure boxes’ called CACHES or GEOCACHES
are hidden ALL over the world. Yes, that’s right ALL over the world (over 100 countries including America), which means that no matter where YOU live- there’s probably a CACHE near you. 🙂
How many ‘treasure boxes’ are located around the world? Around 2 MILLION. Wow, that’s quite a LOT of treasure to go find!
But the difference is we’re not PIRATES…. and we use modern technology!
How do we find the Treasure?
Modern technology has allowed us to move beyond paper and pen (thank goodness) and today’s Treasures are monitored by latitude and longitude in the world of Geopositioning technology (think Satellites in outer space beaming around information…).
Each GPS (just like the one your mom uses in the car to find the grocery store) is a latitude/longitude mapping program that allows us to move from one location (home) to the next (the TREASURE box or cache)!
If we put in our home coordinates, we can use this technology to find ALL the CACHES in our area! It really is that simple. The GPS guides us to the CACHE and we scoop up all the loot! Well, not really, but we’ll cover geocaching rules later.
So, are you interested? I sure hope so. Come back next Tuesday and we’ll cover 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
* provide some links (by state) for more fun.
See you next week!
Hi ho, the bells all toll, the episode is DONE…
It’s been a long time and a LOT of hard work, but our NEXT episode was completed yesterday!
It’s a fun episode about finding an old bone (Katie actually trips over it) and us solving the mystery of WHO’s bone it is. SOCOM finds me in the middle of Kentucky and delivers my first clue and then the ADVENTURE begins.
My favorite time of the day is checking the mailbox for FAN MAIL. This note is from Elijah from Arizona. Read the rest of this entry »
Do you know what a Bison Tube is? Find out when Samuel L. Collins and family find a geocache in a new state.
Have you gone geocaching yet? Give it a try, it’s great family fun.
It’s hard to believe but tomorrow the Samuel L. Collins show airs on NETWORK television. It will be showing at 10am on the NRB nework (Direct TV and SkyAngel)… please check it out if you can.
Wow, is all i can say. All those little boys and girls watching me run around Singapore and learning about God.
I wonder if they will like it? Leave me a note if you see it on the network.
Wow we just finished the Bali episode and now we are close to finishing the Kentucky episode. This weekend I shot my interview segments. I also shot several promotional spots for the NRB Network. 1 month from today we are on the air. If you have Direct-TV make sure you know what channel NRB Network is on.
I saw the final version of the Bali show, it looks great! You guys are going to love it. Watch out for Mikey! Not only did we finish Bali and send it out to duplication, but we also finished the rough cut of the Kentucky show we shot at the Creation Museum. It’s the best show yet!!!! There are some serious surprises coming in the Kentucky show.
