Geocaching for the first time

If you ever want to stretch your legs, or need to get your steps in for the day, go geocaching!


Geocaching is basically a treasure hunt using your phone’s GPS and one of many mobile apps.

From Wikipedia…

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world.

Geocaching is as easy as following a map.  Just walk towards the cache, and the app will tell you how close you are from it.

Some of the best apps to use for Geocaching include…


If you’re geocaching during the warmer months, you may want to put on some bug repellent because you’ll more than likely end up in the woods or fields.

When you find a geocache, do the following…

  1. Sign the logbook with your name, the date, and a few words about your experience.
  2. If you trade for items, remember to trade for something that is of equal or greater value.
  3. Make sure to seal the cache and place it back exactly where and how you found it. If it had some rocks covering it, please replace those.


So, how did my first ever geocaching experience go?  Watch the video below to find out!

The challenge to myself of trying 52 new things in 52 weeks continues next week! Stay tuned, come back HERE or follow me on Twitter, and/or Instagram to find out what I’ll be doing next!!
