Fred's birthday was the 5th. I thought it would be fun to celebrate by geocaching for the day today.
For those who might not know what geocaching is basically it's a high tech treasure hunt game. You use a hand held GPS unit and plug coordinates off a website into it. They are everywhere and get you out and off the couch. We started this hobby in August 2005 and have loved every minute of it.
We haven't been out just the two of us for a long time. Most the time we go with a group of friends. We needed 19 today to hit 700 total finds. So we got to looking at which ones we wanted to do. There is a nice park 20 mins from home. So we loaded up the dogs and headed over. We grabbed a few park and grabs on the way. (Park and Grabs are in parking lots are something so you really just park the vehicle and grab it.) It was 50 degrees today and the sun was shining beautiful. There was a bit too much wind but still it was a wonderful weather day for a park hike. We got to the park and parked the truck and started walking the circle to get the caches. There was 11 in the park. We took our time and the dogs had a blast. (Ended up we walked 3 miles!!! No wonder Izzy is mad at me)
Here is a cute picture...
