For those not in the know, geocaching is basically like a treasure hunt except with really specific coordinates. There will be a container with a log book that you fill in and sometimes there are little items that you can swap.
It was a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon and I asked Boy Roomie if he wanted to go on an adventure. He was lounging on the sofa browsing the internet on his phone and honestly, I don’t think he could be bothered. However, I stood there and he eventually agreed. Besides, I needed someone to hold the dog for me whilst I went searching through the undergrowth for the prize.
I read that someone said that they enjoyed the nifty way of getting the cache and I realised we weren’t looking for buried treasure. I looked up, right in front of my face and there it was.
You pulled that branch down that was attached to a bit of wire that was attached to a container inside the hollow of the tree! I felt like I was in an adventure story a la Enid Blyton. When I told Boy Roomie my feelings, he didn’t get the reference but I hope you do.
Inside there was a whole heap of stuff outlining geocaching and a log book and some goodies.
I swapped one of Jenna’s kitty key caps for this… thing. I don’t know what it is. It reminds me of those ribbons people wear for breast cancer.
This is the tree from a bit further away.
It was so much fun and has definitely whetted my appetite for more adventures. Has anyone else done something like this?
