    So my friend lent me this book called North of Beautiful(an awesome book if anybody gets a chance to read it) anyway, the characters in there did a thing called geocaching, which is kind of like modern day hide and seek/treasure hunting. So I looked it up and it seems like a really awesome and fun thing to do and I guess people have been doing it for years. I looked on the geocaching website and there's more than a hundred caches in my area alone. So I was wondering, are there any other geocachers on here? http://www.geocaching.com/

    I haven't done it yet but a few friends and I are going to start it :)

    They do a big geocache horseback ride here every year sponsored by the college that I work for. I am soooo looking forward to doing it next spring if my paint is ready!

    I hadn't heard of it until this summer. There was a bunch of geocachers at our fairgrounds. Some of the people came into TSC, where my mom works, and were telling her about it. The one lady had been on the road for 6 weeks!!
