Hike and seek with geocaching

My first pub­lished arti­cle is about tak­ing kids geo­caching — a grow­ing sport where hand­held GPS sys­tems are used to locate hid­den “trea­sure”. Although we don’t go often enough, my fam­i­ly real­ly enjoys hik­ing, and geo­caching adds a nice twist to help keep the lit­tle ones moti­vat­ed. The Pacif­ic North­west is a par­tic­u­lar­ly great place for geo­caching, but you can try it just about any­where in the world.

  1. Hi Cal­lie,
    Thanks for your com­ment! No, I don’t have any expe­ri­ence with that mod­el. I have a Garmin Nuvi, but haven’t used it for geo­caching yet. I’ve also seen the Tom­Tom unit. They’re def­i­nite­ly great to have in the vehi­cle when you’re not sure where you’re going!
