Charley Goes Geocaching!

Well, when I took Finn geocaching, my buddy Sammy said that I should take Charley too, and so I decided to do just that.  This time, I drove to the edge of my town, to have the opportunity to look for a different cache.  I found one that was very close to where we were, called BigHeadEd’s Lakeside Camo Hide.

When we got to the lake, we looked at the hint and were told to follow the fence. So, we walked along the fence with our compass until our direction changed from getting warmer and warmer to getting colder and colder. This is what we spotted:

I couldn’t juggle the phone, the camera, Charley, the weeds (tick check quickly followed), and muggles (non geocachers, LOL!) so I didn’t open it up and sign it. Instead, Charley and I hung out by the lake and took in some sun.

When I got home, I logged in my find, and saw that some other folks had been saying that this one was hard to find, maybe the winter storms had blown it away. So, I wonder if I found the cache or just some garbage. It really doesn’t matter, Charley had a great time and he had never been over to this lake before.

Some of you all had questions about geocaching the last time we went – there are caches on every continent! And would you believe, up in outer space (at the International Space Station). So when you go to the geocaching website you put in your city and country, and they tell you where the nearest caches are to you.  If you download the app, it uses your location on your phone to tell which ones are nearby.  If you don’t have the app, you have to print out the location information from your PC. It’s fun, I promise.  And you can enjoy some place new. Try it out and let me know what you found, ok?

PS…Momma here…I am having a little trouble with my eye and seeing the computer and stuff.  Went to the dr yesterday and need to lay low for a while.  Posts occurring as usual, just less comments from Finn & Charley.  See ya soon I hope!

    Oh goodness, we sure hope that your eye will be better soon!

    We love to go Geocaching! We’ve not done it in a while but it is soooooo much fun. My Uncle Bob is really into it. He travels internationally and has found them in every country he has been in (and that’s a lot!)

    Glad that Charley was there to enjoy the experience.

    Hugs,

    Geocaching is fun. My Vickie says she even had the chance to do one in Seward Alaska two weeks ago. We do it around here too. We don’t do the apps, cuase My Vickie doesnt have a cell phone but she pulls out her gps and we use that. All looks well on your end, what a beuatiful lake. hope the eye gets feeling better.
    Love

    Yay Charley your first find! Momz & I stared at the photo and it looks to us like a 35 mm film can, in which case it’s probably the cache….I’m so glad to welcome another geodog to the fold 🙂
