Equipping for Geocaching

We are quite an outdoorsy family as a rule, we enjoy long
walks with our gorgeous pup but since we have started geocaching we want to
spend every weekend hiking up mountains, exploring woods and hanging about at
train stations (surprisingly lots of stations seem to have a cache!). We have realised to be outside so much, we
are not really properly prepared for it, well especially not at this time of
year anyway! I have been thinking the
boys need some walking boots; our wellies do not seem to give us much grip
particularly when we are tackling the difficult terrains, scaling steep rocky
ground!

Weekend and another #geocache #geocaching x

We
are very determined, if we do not find a cache straight away we keep looking,
we hate the thought it might defeat us. 
If it means we start shivering in the process so be it! Once we get an idea in our heads we like to
reach a satisfactory conclusion. It’s
so gratifying when you finally lay eyes on the cache. We have had to get used to lots of different variants, some very
clever hiding places like a sneaky false stone with the log book hidden insideā€¦

It’s
time we dressed for all that time in the cold, being new to geocaching we still
have so much to learn. We may well get
quicker as time goes on but for now we are very much novices. I like searching on instagram with the
hashtag #geocache to see what other people are up to all around the world. It’s HUGE! 
I have decided to get us all some North Face jackets
so we can stay cosy hunting for the next cache. Hubbie is after a multi-cache, I am not sure he really knows what
this but it all sounds very exciting all the same.

Have
you ever been geocaching? Where would
you recommend we try next?
