Today I tried geocaching for the first time. It was a lot of fun for my family. In case you don't know what geocaching is, it's a "treasure hunt" of sorts. You get clues (and/or GPS locations) which lead you to a small container with prizes/journals/etc. Some of them are set up as a swap where you take what's in the box and leave something behind. We did one within the local park system (for safety reasons and reliability) where you get stickers to place on a game card. When you have all of the stickers you cash it in for a prize. Here are some links:
In our geocach there were some playing cards, a mini composition notebook, and a rubber praying mantis. I hope to do it again soon.
