Geocaching

Have you heard of Geocaching but don’t exactly know what it is? Are you comfortable using apps on your smart phone and enjoy walking? If so this might be the group for you.

It’s really a treasure hunt but instead of cryptic clues you use your smart phone or GPS to find the place. Then you just have to find the hidden cache; sign the logbook to register your find then replace it exactly where you found it so it is there for the next person. Although I call it a treasure hunt the only “treasure” is really the fun of finding the cache and logging it.

I’m certainly not an experienced geocacher but I can lead you to a few to get you started and we can all learn together.

You will need a smartphone with the geocache app on it. You will also need premium membership of geocaching.com which costs $30.00 per annum. Potential group members can come to two group meetings before signing up for the premium membership which will enable you to decide whether geocaching is the group for you before incurring any cost.

We will meet somewhere and walk to the co-ordinates to search for the cache so you will need to be comfortable walking on possibly uneven surfaces. And I will take photographs of us and the scenery (though not of exactly where the cache is hidden) and post these photographs on the U3A closed Facebook group.

The group will meet on the first Friday morning of each month.
