I had the mountain bike out for a recent geocache trip. I have combined caching and bicycling quite often and I do enjoy it. Actually twice last week. It is two of my favorite pass times now. I am a relative newbie at geocaching and have found it to be great fun. I plan on getting out for about a 35 mile mountain bike ride this week to plant some caches. This will be my first venture into owning (placing) caches.
For those that don't know of geocaching I will try to briefly explain it. Mind you that I am a newbie, so I may miss things or might not have a full grasp on the sport. This is a definition from their website linked here. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. In the above picture, a person or persons hid this cache and registered it with the website providing information of cache and its coordinates. I had loaded it into my GPS receiver and found it. After I found it, I signed my name on a log contained in the cache. Oh...this is just too much to for a newbie to explain. If you don't already know about geocaching and want to know, check out the website.
This is an example of the trails I was riding on this day.
Lets get outdoors and have some FUN!!
