Our family loves geocaching. Geocaching.com challenged its users to get a cache a day in the month of August. We thought it would be fun to let you guys ride along on our 31 days of geocaching.
What is geocaching? Geocaching.com defines it as a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Basically, it is a fun solo or family adventure game of hide and seek. Check out their Pinterest page.
We grabbed our first cache yesterday, it is called “31-Valley Canyon” – here is what my hubby logged on this find for us:
Starting our 31 Days of Geocaching with this cache as a warm up! An easy park and grab that is part of a 55 caches series near Ramona (be sure to observe all local parking laws!). Why did we start in the middle with number 31? Random luck, I suppose. I had high hopes of starting the 31 days with a 5/5 cache out in east county, but our caching friends were tied up and the kiddos had just fallen asleep in the back of the car, so we just started driving down Highland Valley Road to buy some nap time. The view was nice, the road was wide and the cache was close. We pulled off and I hopped out, making a quick find with the hint in hand. TFTC
This was was an easy find with a difficulty rating of 1.5 (out of 5) and terrain rating of 1.5 (out of 5). Can you spot the cache? SPOILER ALERT – the cache location is revealed :)
Follow along with us as we cache our way through August, checking in daily for each new adventure. If you are a geocacher, let us know!
