Recently I watched the television program "Motion" on a Sunday night. The host of the show hikes and walks through national and state parks. The episode I watched was about Geocaching.
I have not entered into the Geocaching sport yet. The hesitancy is probably due to the fact that I don't need another reason to buy expensive electronic equipment. GPS also creeps me out some as I see it as a way for a big brother government to track citizens and monitor what they are doing.
Yet the idea of taking a hike with a purpose does seem intriguing. The discovering, the anticipation, and the satisfaction of finding the cache are all things that I would like to experience. Plus the melding of technology and the outdoors is a really neat combination.
I will keep you informed of my thoughts on this hobby. If I do decide to take the leap into this sport, I will let you know.
