GEOCACHE TOYS?

06.18.09

A few pics from our first family Geocaching adventure. I’m working on getting my husband to jot down some of his extensive geocaching research.

small-geocache3Now that we’ve tried this around home, I’m dying to go try it in San Francisco. But first, we’re trying to come up with a little toy that can be our family’s signature geocache toy, which we’ll leave behind for future treasure seekers. Any suggestions?

We tried geocaching in SF at Presidio during the winter holidays. We realized we are not good at it at all. We didn’t find one cache! Not in the Presidio or near our house in suburbia. We haven’t tried again. Maybe this summer…
What about a tiny toy compass for your “family toy”? May the Dollar Store or Oriental Trading Co would have some.
Have fun!

Ok, I thought of another toy idea. A mini magnifying glass, perhaps?

hi, I just discovered your site and am having a field day in your archives! My husband and I love to geocache–we don’t have a signature toy but this past Christmas I had a customized stamp made–it’s our screen name from the geocaching.com website, and

Found it!

Thanks for the cache!

I had it made through the 3 Geeks Outdoor Store.

Also FWIW, we didn’t have much luck geocaching in SF. Too many tall buildings interfering with our GPS signal. Admittedly we only tried in the more urban areas of the city–it would probably be easier in the outskirts.
