Geocaching

Has anyone here gone geocaching? Check out geocaching.com if you don't know what it it. Basically it is a high tech treasure hunt. You get gps coordinates that get you in the general area and then use clues to find the cache. The kids and I just did it for the first time and had so much fun. We can't wait to do it again.

I can't get my GPS to do the coordinates. There are a few close by and we'd love to do that, but I apparently bought the wrong type of GPS. OOPS.

Holy moses! That app is $10! I have to think on this one a bit GB. I know its fun but I have to decide if I want to spend the discretionary budget there.

iPhone has a free version and a $10 one. Search a little more. There had got to be a free android one too.
