    A man in our area hid a small item by drilling a hole in a tree, putting the item in a capsule to protect it and carefully replacing the bark over the hole. Someone came along and found the item in about 14 days. Crazy, right?

    LOVED doing this! We have a few that our family has found around our area. My daughter put a memento and a note in one of the boxes closest to us.

    I have been wanting to try this for a long time. I know my grandkids would love doing this too. I've found there are lots of geo-cache treasures right in my area of town by lookig on Google....and all the state parks are into Geo-Caching. Just need to get my butt in gear and get started!!!

    My family loves geocaching. We've been doing it for about 5 years. Our local park district even apps ones a family cache challenge where there are at least 10 well maintained caches hidden in our local parks. Such a great way to spend half an hour to an entire weekend!

    omg I feel so bad now!!! My kids found a little capsule (looked like a film canister) in the park last year in a tree. There was a paper inside it but it was damaged by water so we couldnt really read it. I do however remember seeing the word *cache* on it. We took it as litter and disposed of it. I hope no one was out trying to find it later on!!! I had no idea what this was all about. But now that I know that it is right here in my neighborhood I think my kids and I will deffinitly be participating come spring
    thanks for the info!!!

    I'm gonna ask my daughters if they want to get in on this. A friend of mine did it with his kids. Seems like harmless fun.

    Another great pasttime similar to geocaching is letterboxing. Same concept as geocaching, only you have a logbook and make a signature rubber hand stamp and when you find the letterbox, you will find a rubber stamp instead of a trinket. You stamp their rubber stamp in your logbook and then stamp the logbook that stays in the letterbox with your personal signature stamp. To find out more, go to atlasquest.com. Some letterboxes also double as geocaches. Happy hunting!!!

    This sounds like a lot of fun and it seems there are several places in my area. Looks like I'll be taking the kids out this weekend!

    Thanks
