Geocaching


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.

  1. Hi Keith,
    You might try looking into Orienteering instead. Not sure what opportunites there are in your area, but in southeastern PA where I live we have one of the most vibrant clubs and beautiful venues in the country. Check out www.dvoa.org and have a look at the Beginners section to learn more.
    Take care,
    Tom
