After our windblown journey in the Journey, we arrived at our South Carolina “home” and looked forward to spending a few days with our grandsons Andrew and Owen. We have so much fun when we’re with them. Marti has introduced them to that time honored RV activity of Geocaching. The boys love it, Marti loves it. Me? I’m the chauffer.
Today, Sunday, we had a nice sunny day. We’ve been unaffected by Hurricane Sandy so after church and lunch, we set out on a quest to find a couple more caches.
Owie likes to use Marti’s I-phone. She has a Geocache app downloaded on it which provides a map.
Andrew prefers Marti’s Magellan hand held GPS unit. He likes the technical aspect of the unit and how it measures distance and direction to the cache.
Our first attempt to locate a Geocache failed, we gave up after a half hour. On to the second location.
Andrew thought he was getting close, but alas, he couldn’t find anything as hard as he looked.
Owie found something, but it certainly wasn’t the Geocache we were looking for.
We gave up on try number two after a while and moved on to the location of a Geocache that has eluded up on two previous tries. This time, we tasted victory!
How did we miss it twice before? It was here.
Who’d a thunk? Pretty clever hiding spot.
Afterwards, we went back to the Journey to hang out and unwind. The boys love play Nintendo almost as much as Marti does. The acorn truly does not fall far from the tree. ;c)
Geocaching a a great activity for our RV travels and we look forward to doing more of it with the boys as we take them on future trips around the country in the Journey.
