I think I may have heard about geocaching sometime ago. But it was not until I went on a Cub Scout trip a couple of weekends ago that I actually had an opportunity to experience geocaching.

For those of you who don’t know, geocaching is a worldwide phenomenon. Geocaching is a real-world treasure hunt using GPS-enabled devices (most smartphones).┬áParticipants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates (or use their smartphone like I did) to end up at a specific location. They then attempt to find the┬ácache (a hidden container) hidden at that location. Obviously, someone had to place the cache at that specific location and upload the coordinates.

I’ve only just begun – I found a cache in Guild Inn Park in Scarborough! But I can already imagine the amount of fun I will have.

If you’ve experienced geocaching I’d love to hear/read your comments.
