Geocachers search for different size containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world using a GPS device. Geocashers can also hide containers for others to find. It is a fun hobby- the kids enjoyed searching with us. We found our first 2 caches today at Stanley Eddy Park.
A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook where the geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their Geocaching.com username or established code name.

After signing the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where it was found. Some contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets and sometimes are items of sentimental value.
The first one we found today had many little toys, a collector card that Cadence traded out with one of her fancy rocks. Alexis traded a coin for a little pig toy. The second one had a little flag that Alexis traded out with a fancy gem rock. It had similar items in it as the first one. We wrote our username (eyelove808) in both log books. We haven’t been able to find a micro yet, we tried but couldn’t find the two we were looking for.
