Geocaching

Have you done this yet? You HAVE to. We only went for about an hour, a friend teaching us the ropes, but we are hooked! This trip was just for Faith and Hope (and their friends), but next time it will be a family affair. I can see even the little ones loving the "treasure hunt". We found 2 today, and one had a coin that can also be tracked online. We have yet to track it, but will do that tomorrow, and then place it in another cache the next time we go! The girls replaced the items they took (the tracking coin, and another coin with a cross cut out of it) with necklaces. A young boy with us put in a little cowboy figurine and pulled out a cross charm "for my mom." All together, now. Aaaaaawwwwwww!

hsmomma5... i feel your pain. but not to worry, for there is another similar (and historically much older) activity that you can enjoy WITHOUT a GPS.. provided of course that you DO have a computer, or access to one... and i assume you do because you can't just post comments on this here blog by scotch taping a note to the window of brandy's computer room. well, i guess you could, but she knows martial arts, so, well, you know...
anyway it's called letterboxing and some friends of ours in north georgia told us about it when we visited there last year. go to this site to find out all about it...
