Lori Diehl tells how she and her family discovered an out door treasure hunt in Geocaching – High-tech Treasure Hunting, in the March-April Issue of Home Education Magazine.Ms. Diehl writes:
My children and I were introduced to geocaching in a roundabout way. While hiking at a local state park, my son Julian found an overturned boat just off the trail and had already scrambled over it before I could shout, “Watch out for snakes!”
“Mom, look at this!”
He had found a sealed plastic bowl hidden beneath the boat. Metal glinted among the bizarre array of objects inside: a Beanie Baby, bottle caps, buttons, coins, patches, photos, jewelry and a notebook. It was our first geocache, and we hadn’t even been looking for it.
