Default Any geocachers out there?
Some folks I met on a cruise a while back were geocachers and said that they try to find caches in the ports they visit.
Does anyone else do this?
I'm just a beginner and have found some hidden treasures near my house.
For those who don't know, it's a worldwide scavenger hunt that uses GPS co-ordinates. You can down load an app or go to the geocaching.com website to find the locations.
It's something a little different to do if you don't have anything else planned.

Marsha, we are also amateur geocachers and have found several caches in a few different places. We have a bag prepared with trinkets to leave, a pencil, etc. We have found several traditional chaches (although we almost always succumb to decoding the hint), and my kids have found a couple of underwater caches in Lake George (NY). It's great fun!

I have to say I had never heard of this and had to go to the website. Interesting and I found a few places nearby. Looks like fun and I will have to do some more research.
