What is geocaching?
Here’s a classic scenario:
You get an air-
You place a ‘log book’ in the sandwich box (cheap notepad, even just a sheet of paper)
You place some goodies in the sandwich box (mostly cheap items that typically children enjoy, e.g. badges, key-
You label the box as a ‘Geocache’ (write with permanent marker on the outside, or similar).
Write a short note for the inside explaining what a geocache is (wording available to download).
Go for a walk (along the beach, in the woods, in a park, or even down town!)
Spot a ‘safe’ and secure place to hide your lunch box, or actually geocache, simpler still -
Place your cache in the hiding place, away from prying eyes.
Using a smartphone (or a GPS device, such as for treking, etc.) make a note of the location of the cache (a bit like marking a position if you ever use a car SatNav).
Log into www.geocaching.com and tell everyone what and where your cache is!
