@alishaloo:  Very cool!  DH and I were just talking about how we need to vary our activity level a bit, especially in these colder winter months.  Good thread to follow!

Bowling, mini golf, rock climbing… try to find a sport that he’ll play with you.  Go jogging together.  Sign up for a 5 or 10k and train for it together. 

(Also, what’s up with the spacing in the original post?  I read it like an unrhyming poem!)

@alishaloo, @kir32

Probably the biggest and most well known site that has caches on it is geocaching.com which is where you can look up the coordinates and put them on your GPS device.

You can use your smart phone or an actual GPS device like a garmin.  If you have a tablet that has 3g you can use that as well (tablets w/o 3g don’t work very well as a friend and I found out).

Personally, I recommend using your phone and find a free app like C:Geo for android at first.  If you get bit by the caching bug and want a device that has longer battery life and better GPS reception later, then you can pick up an actual GPS device.

So you can get the coordinates into your gps device a few ways.  If you’re using an app you can just search for caches while you’re on wifi at home and if the app has the option, pick the ones you want to do and save it offline so you’re not using data.  Or you can get the coordinates off the geocache profile on the site and enter it by hand in the app.

Then off you go! I recommend for your first few to look for traditionals that are medium to large sized or marked for beginners.  There’s some called nanos or micros that are the size of a film canister down to the size of a large horse pill.  If you’re new and can’t find them, it’ll probably put you off.

I’ll also mention if you start doing this, there WILL be caches you can’t find.  Hubby and I took off yesterday to do a 10km multi cache (multiple steps and puzzles) and we probably spent a good 1.5 hours looking for the clue at the very first step, not more than a quarter of a mile from the parking lot. o_O We’re awaiting a reply from the cache owner to confirm we were in the right spot. It’s all part of the game. 😉
