Who doesn’t love a treasure hunt? The thrill of discovering “clues”, sometimes involving a riddle, or simply following a map to the “buried treasure”. However you define it, a “treasure hunt” can be a lot of fun, and a great way to get out and move your body while enjoying time away from your day-to-day grind. Want to learn more about Geocaching?

Our family discovered Geocaching around 2002, back before we all had smart phones with us daily. The Geocaching website was not what is today. Not as many features or interactive maps, just a simple map, and GPS coordinates with a few clues or a riddle to find the cache. We did not own a GPS unit but instead, borrowed one from a realtor friend.
So, we set out on one of our early Geocaching adventures. Back in the early days of caching, we did not always find what we were looking for. Sometimes, the coordinates were inaccurate. Other times, fellow “treasure hunters” were not always careful and did not place the cache back in the exact location after their find. Other times, “muggles” would find the cache and removed it altogether. It was a bit frustrating at times.
