Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunt! Geocachers use a GPS to navigate to a set of coordinates, and then attempt to find the geocache (container) that’s hidden at the location. It’s amazing because geocache locations can be found all over the world! Many “caches” are hidden in locations that are important to people, have historical significance, or are
just pretty cool places to visit!
Liz and I discovered Geocaching several years ago on a whim. A friend introduced us to the hobby and we have been using geocaching as a way to discover new lands and cultures around the world. We tested out geocaching while on a boring road trip one day, and it added so much excitement to the drive. From then on we were hooked on incorporating Geocaching into
everywhere we traveled. One of the things that we love about our hobby of Geocaching is that you can only do it outside, and we enjoy the outdoors! So Geocaching gives us purpose to get up and get outside. Besides being a way to keep physically active, Geocaching as a couple has given us the opportunity to explore nature, culture, and history together, as well as having spontaneous adventures all over the world!
