“GEOCACHING is a real-world outdoor treasure hunting game. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using GPS-enabled devices and then share their experiences online.”

Mya, Solana and I have taken up geocaching over a year ago, thanks to our friend, Mary, who got us hooked.  Yes, even Solana knows how to hunt – she can can easily spy a “micro” and always suspects that certain containers are actually geocaches. We were out one day and one of our hunts led us to REI. I gave her permission to pick ONE geocaching item and she chose a travel bug dog tag. A travel bug is a trackable item that is moved along through geocaches. You can give it a goal and watch its progress online (it’s like those “Where’s Washington” dollars). Once we took it home, we had several or go to their store at:
