Last Friday was a pretty day, so when Matthew got off the bus, I told him we were going on an adventure. He was game, so I explained to him what I had been reading about geocaching, and showed him the app on my phone. He is very interested in maps and geography, so he thought it looked like fun.
According to geocaching.com, "Geocaching is a free real-world outdoor treasure hunt. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using a smartphone or GPS and can then share their experiences online."
We selected a cache that was 2.5 miles from my home, and headed out in the car in search of our first cache.
(Looking at the recent logs online, there was one written the day after we were there that said it is not, in fact, a rectangle, but a small bottle, completely soaked. Maybe that's why we didn't find it!)
He also wants to be sure I don't go geocaching without him. :)
I told him that was a deal!
