We started Geocaching, Perth, Australia

Geocaching is a modern treasure hunting game, instead of using a old school map a GPS navigator is used, instead of an ‘x’ to mark the spot, latitude and longitude coordinates are used.

I recently purchased a basic hand-held GPS, the Garmin eTrex H, a rugged GPS with monochrome screen and then convinced Sonya to join me for some Geocaching.

We have so far tried finding three geocaches, but have only managed to find the treasure at one location, this might be due to our lack of experience.

It is quite a bit of fun, and gives us good exercise. We will update our blog with interesting finds and photos as we look for more treasure.
