GEOCACHING!!!

mikey has been geocaching for quite some time now. it all started when b.c. (the step-father) would come and visit mom before he moved down here, he would take the two of them geocaching.

now for those of you who don't know what its about, the above link will tell you all about it. but pretty much its a site where people list coordinates of "treasures" they have hidden. you see if there are any in your area, and get to searching. there are clues to where its hidden and once you find it, you usually find a baggie full of treasures and get to pick whatever you want outta it. then you replace the items that you took with items you have in your stash, fill out a log provided in the can (or whatever its stored in) and put it back for another treasure hunter to find.

its a wonderful concept and quite frankly right up my alley. but i had never been before.

until today.

b.c. took mikey out and me and mom had an errand to run, so on our way back to the house, we saw the two of them searching at a local library. so we drove to the house, picked up the camera, and headed back towards their direction (its actually kinda right across the street).

after much searching, we finally found it.

its funny to see mikey doing it. he's quite the pro. he even has a user name on the site where mom logs all his finds on.

this does remind me that i def. need to check out book crossing. hmmm...i must make that on the to-do list for this week.

anyway, back to some pictures.


the search is on!

finally! we found the next clue.

off to go find the treasure!

we found it.

can't wait to see the goodies inside.

letting you know you found it and what to do.

look at all that loot to choose from.

mikey's selection.

now mikey gets to take this and place it in the next geocaching that they hide. this will usually travel all over the place. i think it originally started in michigan.

mission accomplished.

Had no idea what that was, but Max has a book with a hunt for jewels and gems all over the country and it sounds similar.
Boys love the "hunt" in whatever form!

That's so cool! I've always wanted to do this, perhaps I'll see if there's any near me!

Hey Eliz,
What is the website where your mom posts Mikey's finds? This is all new to me too.
