What does a GPS and Exercise have in common?

So I bet you are asking yourself what does a GPS and exercise have in common? Well there seems to be a new game in town (okay so it is about to celebrate it 10th anniversary) and it is growing in popularity. It is called “Geocaching” (pronounced geo-cashing) and it’s a come to life game of hide and seek, only played worldwide. You would use a portable GPS or one that is on your cell phone. Go to the web site: http://www.geocaching.com. Currently there are 1,041,983 active geocaches in the world.

Follow these simple steps to begin your own treasure hunt.

Easy Steps to Geocaching

  1. Register for a free Basic Membership
  2. Click “Hide & Seek a Cache.”
  3. Enter your postal code and click “search.”
  4. Choose any geocache from the list and click on its name.
  5. Enter the coordinates of the geocache into your GPS Device.
  6. Use your GPS device to assist you in finding the hidden geocache.
  7. Sign the logbook and return the geocache to its original location.
  8. Share your geocaching stories and photos online

This is a great way to get out and explore your community. Fun for you and the whole family. Now you are asking how is exercise tied in… the coordinates put you close to where the geocache is but you will still have to walk, hike, or search for the box itself.  So go out and start your hunt today. Get to know your community, state, and the world.

Warning: You may get addicted 🙂 The sport where you are the search engine.

Cheers!
