Geocaching

Recently my friend Scott introduced me to the wonderful world of Geocaching. This is a world wide game of treasure hunt, for people with GPSs. A couple of things about this appeal to me.
  • It is slightly competitive
  • it has a slight geology focus (there are things called Earth Caches)
  • it gets me outside, walking around, without feeling like exercise
  • Clara can come to, to some places at least.
  • it's kind of nerdy ;)
Anyway, I discovered that you can get badges!!! (see the first point above.) And here is one I have earnt :)
