Go get some cache





Last weekend, I finally did something smart instead of choosing the rational path. Rational would have been answering emails or clearing out the growing nest of mess that clogs our basement. Smart was obeying the voice of my inner child, which was pleading “it’s sunny, it’s warm … let’s play!” So I grabbed a Garmin handheld GPS, packed up my kids and some trinkets and headed outdoors to find some cache. Make that caches since our sport of the day was geocaching. A neighbor friend even decided to join our expedition when she heard talk of “treasure hunting”. Before we took off, we logged onto geocaching.com to look up sites nearby.

In all, we found 3 of the 4 sites we set out to find, including one cleverly hidden in the fork of a tree, which required a bit of a boost for my 5-foot-and-under friends to discover. I hope you find a little free time this fall to go out and play. Check out our new Land of Oregon minisite for a guided tour of the Oregon series — our top handhelds for geocachers and anyone who likes to play in the dirt.
