A Fitness Trend That Isn’t Dumb: Geocaching!
The Minnesota DNR has a great idea for getting some fresh air, exercise, and using your brain without having to lock up your smartphone.
A few years ago my cousin was always taking his kids geocaching. He really enjoyed it, and his kids liked the thrill of the hunt.
What is Geocaching?
It's like a real-life role-playing adventure game, minus the orcs (hopefully). The treasure ("cache") you're hunting is usually a box containing a trinket for trading or a log book to sign. The cool thing about geocaching is that you can combine technology and nature!
The adventurers can use a GPS-enabled smartphone to get you close to the location of the "cache." Your adventure skills take it from there.
