Searching for buried treasure…

So my battle buddy, Swan, introduced me to a worldwide phenomenom, Geocaching.  Essentially, people from all around the world hide (no burying allowed) little treasures in various areas all around.  And other people go find them.  You go to and search in your area.  People leave clues and then let you know when they find yours!

The first one we found...

Last night, we found 2 out of the 4 we looked for.  It was super exciting.  Swan has a small GPS that we used to find the locations, and the clues that were posted helped to find where they were hidden exactly.  The problem here of course is that sand is constantly blowing and covering stuff up, and that there isn’t someone always here to take care of sites.

#2 - The sticker even says it's a Geocache!

At home, I know there are a whole bunch right around my place that I will have to search for when I get home.  I have one more thing to look forward to!
