It has been a while since I have done a 50 things post. If you read this blog you may know what I am talking about. If you don't, we are following the National Trusts 50 things to do before you are 11 3/4. You can find the list of things to do here
We the kids have 11 of the things left to complete.
One of the items we still had to complete was number 49 - find a geocache.
On Saturday, we had no plans so decided to try and find a geocache. I have heard about geocaching before but really had no clue what is was about. Esentially it is a modern day treasure hunt.
You have a GPS device or download an geocache app. We downloaded an app for iphone and decided to look locally for one.
I was really surprised there were quite a lot dotted around.
We went off in the car, following the trail, then when we got closer we abandoned the car and went on foot.
We finally found the box behind a road sign, hidden in ivy.
We wrote our names on the notebook in the box and left a small piece of Knex as a gift.
Number 49 - find a Geocache complete!
Now onto the last 10.
