A Little Hipstamatic While Geocaching

One of the geocaches I found today took me into the words beside a park. I decided to snap a few photos whilst in the wild.

Flowers Found on the Greenway

I was scouting a greenway today to see about hiding some geocaches, and I noticed these blossoms.

Just Some Daisies

I noticed these daisies growing wild at the site of one of the geocaches I found today, so I decided to capture them with Hipstamatic.

Hooked on Geocaching

20130428-194853.jpg

Several years ago probably between 2003 and 2006, my gamer pal Mark mentioned geocaching. It’s a kind of scavenger hunt that utilizes the GPS network to navigate to hidden containers called caches. When you find a cache, you sign the log sheet, trade items called swag if you like, and then return the cache to its hiding place so other geocachers can find it, too. It sounded interesting; but, at that time, I didn’t have a GPS, and smart phones didn’t have GPS capabilities. I didn’t want to invest in a unit, so I didn’t give it much more thought.

Fast forward to March 4 – 8 of this year. I was a chaperone on an art student spring break trip with photography professor Gerard Lange. He mentioned that there were a number of letterboxes hidden near one of the sites we visited in Philadelphia. Letterboxing is similar to geocaching but without GPS coordinates. Well, that got me thinking about geocaching again. By then, I owned a new iPhone with GPS functionality; so I decided to give it a try.

I found my first geocache, a small blue tube, on March 12, 2013. I’ve been hooked since. As of this writing, I have logged 89 caches. Not bad for a month and a half in the hobby, if I do say so myself.

I have thoroughly enjoyed caching, especially discovering locations that I might not have visited otherwise. I’ve got several ideas swirling around in my little noggin for some caches that I want to create.

I tend to be very sedentary, but geocaching gets me out and about. The adventure is satisfying, and some of the locations are beautiful.

I heartily recommend this hobby. Give it a shot. It’s free. It’s fun.

Now, off to find a few more!
