Ken and I have talked about geocaching for about a year now…we talked about starting when we go up to Mackinac Island next month but a few weeks back he came home one day and said next weekend we are going geocaching! Alright, sounds like fun!!! So I joined the geocaching site and the Michigan Geocachers site too and started investigating. I picked 5 caches and we went out Sunday looking for them!!!
The first one we went to we didn’t finish looking for it because some idiot decided to do their business near the cache and didn’t even bother to pick up the napkins they used…talk about gross!!!
We went to the 2nd one – which was our first find! The kids were super excited and then we went onto our next one. It was a great find and then we looked in the notes and it said there was another one near by so Ken looked up online (on his phone) and we wrote the clues down and the coordinates. This one was a 3 part one and that was probably my favorite of the day…we saw 4 deer running around.
After the 3rd one we headed to lunch – it was fun talking about our afternoon out and then we decided to look for a 4th one that was on the way home. That one was super easy but a tad disappointing because there was no long inside and trash on the inside…BUMMER!!!
It was great fun and we are talking about going out to find a few tonight too!!! YAY! Here is a slide show that I put together from Sunday!!!
