Transcript of Geocaching
Geocaching benefits me because I don't do a lot of things with my family outside. This is a fun activity for the whole family so they can bond. Not only can I do this with my family but I can do this with all my friends.
What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is like a treasure hunt. People bury thing inside a box and you need coordinates to find the box. The boxes can come in all different shapes and sizes. It can come in the sizes from a nail to a vault. These boxes are never under the ground but don't underestimate them. They can be in the trees, under leaves, or even camouflaged to look like nature.
How to Geocache
First, you need to download the app or go onto an geocaching website. The website is called: http://www.geocaching.com
How do you Make a Geocache
What it's like to Geocache
Geocaching is really fun and exciting. I tried to do two geocaches on 6/3/2014. The first one was micro sized and we couldn't find it. It was called " In Memory of Memorial Bridge". The second one was near train tracks and I was on the wrong side. It was called "Capt. Stephen Stow- Humanitarian".
Step 1 - Research a Cache Location: It's important to find a good hiding spot for your geocache or else people will find it right away. Whether you hide it in a place that you like or in the middle of the woods, make sure that your place is allowed to have geocaches and that it's unseen.
Step 2 - Preparing Your Cache: When you hide a cache, make sure that the container is good. it should be waterproof and can resist the weather all year long. Also make sure that the items in the geocache are not too expensive and/or dangerous. Don't have gold watches or pocketknives in your cache.
Step 3 - Placing Your Cache: Make sure that your cache has all the right coordinates. We don't wan't anybody to get lost.
Step 4 - Submitting Your Cache: Take time to review the Geocache Listing
Guidelines. If your geocache meets the requirements then fill out the online form. It should have a description, image , and a hint for finding the geocache.
Step 5 - Maintaining Your Cache: Your geocache should always be in good shape. Visit your geocache every once in a while to see that it wasn't damaged. If visitors are disturbing the landscape, feel free to move your cache to another location.
You can choose from many geocaches
from 1 star to 5 stars. 1 star is the easiest and 5 stars is the hardest.
They will give you coordinates for you to follow. You can drive, bike, roller skate, walk, or etc. Once you are very close, go on your hands and knees and start searching. Sooner or later you will find the geocache.
