The Video Game of the Outdoors—Geocaching
Christy Weckner of Geocaching HQ talks to us about what Geocaching is, why people like it, and various ways you can Geocache. It’s such a cool family activity. Check out the Geocaching app on Google Play and the Apple Store. You can get a free account and easily find out about Geocaches that are near you at any given moment. Geotours is a new Geocaching thing. There’s a Geotour for Mt. Rainier.
Also, check out Pixelkin’s story about our awesome visit to Geocaching HQ in Seattle. Here’s our video of that (includes an interview with a very cute Geocaching family):
