So, on the 16th May I introduced Charlie to Geocaching (more about that in a moment) we only have one very near to the house, but we will start exploring further afield and looking for more, but he was very pleased with himself for finding his first one!
Whilst in the woods, we did a little bit of den building and plan to go back & finish off and also hide our own Geocache somewhere else in the woods, I just need to work out how to add it on to the site when we have done it. Anyway, if you go further down under the photos, there will be an explanation of what Geocaching isGeocaching? (link to the website here)
Geocaching is an increasingly popular, inclusive, fun and healthy pastime for individuals of all ages. It is also great for groups like families, friends, classes and youth groups working as teams. The sport combines technology with adventure and nature, a combination that some people didn’t think was possible. The core of the sport consists of using a hand held GPS receiver unit (any up to date smart phone will do) to guide you to a destination, where a hidden container (or “cache”) is stored. Once found, you log your visit in an included logbook, and optionally trade one of the many contained “goodies” (AKA swag) for one of your own
