Geocaching. Never heard of it? Well, you have now. There are currently about 6 million geocachers searching for 2.4 million caches all over the world.
What’s it all about then, Alfie?
Well, according to Geocaching.com, “Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.”
We had the pleasure of introducing this pastime to my daughter and son-in-law recently. Whether they thank us, in a few years, for revealing this strangely addictive activity to them remains to be seen. But they were hooked straight after finding their first cache.
There are over 200 caches within just 7 miles of The Laurels, so if you’re already into geocaching or want to give it a try, why not give us a visit?
We’ve had a few geocachers stay with us, even one who brought his kayak so he could do a series of 17 down the Cauldon Canal, called Have you put the plug in?
