Nothing to do with food today, but I wonder what have you done that is new lately?
In the past year and a bit, I've tried tango, renewed my love of watercolor painting and, very recently, tried geocaching, just to name a few.
The geocaching is something I've wanted to try for years...It's like treasure hunting with a hand-held GPS. There are geocachers the world over, and they have quite a network. From what I've seen, if you geocache, you can find a connection almost wherever you go.
What I love about it is that it's a reason to be out and walking, getting to know a place and there's this little nugget of a reward if you find the cache. Open it up, sign the log and check out where in the world others who have found the cache came from...It happens to be a great family activity, too. Kind geocachers leave trinkets for the kids--marbles, inexpensive charms, that kind of thing...
Here's how the Geocaching official website defines it:
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.
Check out the site, find a group and give it a try if you have even a bit of interest. You will probably like it and you may just find yourself some new friends...
So what have you done that's new lately? Tell me about it.
Geocaching sounds like great fun. I haven't tried that, but I've just joined a group of like-minded people working to improve our community.
My friend in Oregon does geocaching and she loves it! I've been meaning to try it- because I so love treasure hunts- and NEED to get outside more- if I do pick it up, I'll let you know.
I'd love to try geocaching some day. I can't believe I haven't already. What have I tried new lately? I tried stand up paddling. I didn't care for it too much, as I didn't want to fall in the water. It was too cold for me. I'll try again this summer. I gave up on that and tried the water bike, which I loved. I'm still trying to learn how to ride the unicycle. Hard! I need help and am going to have to join a club for that, I think. And I took up yoga, beginning last year, which I love. I'm sure there will be more new things this year, as I'm always searching for new things to do.
This is on my to-do list too! We have done letterboxing, but only just got a GPS for geocaching. I can't wait to hear how you like it. =D
