While I am finally in possession of a real GPS unit as opposed to using the confusing one one on my cell phone, I still haven’t tried Geocaching. (Though I’d really like to.) Unfamiliar with the sport? From Geocaching.com: “Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.”
The site has over 1.1 million geocaches indexed, and you can search for caches near you (or where you might be on vacation, etc.) via address or zip code.
Every cache has one thing in common- a log book for you to record your find. I had been pondering which Rhodia product might be best to stash in a cache, and was considering the small staple bound books when I coincidentally happened upon Kelly Ness’s image above on Flickr and saw that I wasn’t alone in my thinking.
Do you think those little Rhodia will make for good log books in a cache? Should I do a giveaway? Let me know your thoughts.
