How To Geocache - A Guide To Geocaching

Wrapping things up this week, I figured this would be a great time to post this how to video we recently did on geocaching. I love it because it combines geeky technology (gps) with treasure hunting.

Dorrie's been posting about geocaching a bunch recently so you can get caught up on just what the heck geocaching is on her "what is geocaching" post and "my first geocache" post.

In the video I cover how to get coordinates for geocaches near you, how to get them into your GPS unit, and then how to follow your GPS to get you close to the cache.

One thing to keep in mind is that a GPS unit is really only accurate to about 30 or 40 feet so once you get really close to where the cache is supposed to be hidden, it's time to start thinking about where you'd hide the hidden "treasure" if you were doing it.

Hope you enjoyed cool non essential technology week. Dorrie's back next week and who knows what rockin' cool stuff she's got in store for you.

Let me know what you think of the video. If you like it, we just might do more. (hint, use the comments button below)
