Geocaching: the Outdoor Adventure Game

Spring has sprung!

Soon, it will be unbearably hot here in Florida, but for now it is time to spend every waking hour outdoors. In this spirit, today I bring you:

Geocaching.

Geocaching is an existing community that hides and seeks containers of various sizes all over the world. These containers are caches. Inside of the caches is usually a log book for anyone who finds that cache to sign and sometimes a small prize or token.

To get started, you need a pair of comfortable shoes, a pen and access to the internet.

Start at geocoaching.com, plug-in a zip code and a list of caches in your neighborhood will generate. I highly suggest using the app for iPhone  or android. In the app, you can find nearby caches and it will show you exactly where you are in relation to it on a map.

The cat really wanted to play, but her favorite words “dinner time” just aren’t there.

Happy Friday! How about a game of Boggle? As you can see, Breezy the cat really is a good sport and tried to play my choice of game this morning, but her lack of english skills and opposable thumbs makes her a lousy opponent. She really prefers games that dangle from a string.

So instead it’s Foto Friday!

2 minutes on the clock. How many 3+ letter words can you find?

I only found 15 this week.
