Found 2 out of 4 caches tonite. Still can’t find the one at Heritage Park and tried a new one behind Meijer that I couldn’t find. Found “Orton Hears A Who” and “On The Way To School“. Here’s the pics.
Went back for the 3rd time today at lunch with 2 co-workers. There was a pipe in the middle of the trail that had a cap on it. I was sure this was it, but no amount of tugging would let it loose. Finally one of my co-workers spotted the geocache. It was disguised as part of the stairs. This was located at Indian Run in Dublin. Beautiful area. Check out the pics.
Today I picked up a Garmin GPS handheld unit (picture to the left — cheapy $90 one). I’ve been reading about geocaching and thought it would be fun to pick a target each weekend and go find it. For those of you that don’t know what geocaching is, here’s the wikipedia definition:
Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called “geocaches” or “caches”) anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container (usually a tupperware or ammo box) containing a logbook. Larger containers can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaching is most often described as a “game of high-tech hide and seek”, sharing many aspects with orienteering, treasure-hunting, and waymarking.
I signed up for an account on geocaching.com and have picked a few targets to try this weekend. I’ll let ya know how it goes.
