Adventures in Geocaching

After yesterday's MD Park Quest adventures in geocaching, it got me hankering to do some more investigation.  Fittingly, is the place to go.  Here's a little 411, acrostic style, on what geocaching is all about.

GPS devices and coordinates will get you where you want to go.

Excellent way to get outside, get moving, and check out the great outdoors.
Online coordinates, free (or premium paid) memberships, & follow up opportunities are found at .
Containers are hidden with log books and special finds--you get to be the detective!
Anyone, any age can do it!

Compass in hand, clean the woods & world as you go:  "Cache In Trash Out!" .
High tech treasure sure to take a treasure or two to exchange!
Enter your zip code to find place nearby to start your Geocache adventures!

So, whether you're looking for a family outing or a outdoor field trip adventure in compass skills and orienteering, geocaching is a good way to build critical thinking skills while getting yourself outside!
