About a week ago I downloaded a Geocaching app for my iPhone. The first day we tried to go out was the day that we had rain, snow, hail, thunder and lightening. Needless to say we really didn’t get to explore as much as we wanted.
But today, despite the Easter rains, we got out and had a short but success geocaching expedition. We found 2 caches and all the kids were pretty excited about it. I can see that we’ll being a lot more of this in the near future. I’m also planning to have our cub scout den go geocaching.
The iPhone app that I got was Geocaching v2.0 from the GroundSpeak Project. I usually only download the free apps, but I actually paid for this one. It was $9.99 and worth every penny. It really works too! There are real time GPS maps, both street and terrain, that show where you are in relation to the treasure. Hints, notes, descriptions, GPS coordinates…too much to list. I am very happy with the purchase and would recommend it to anyone. There are so many caches out there that we will never run out of places to explore.
As we go on more hikes I’ll probably post more about our adventures, but I’ll try not to give away any spoilers.
