And I’m offically hooked!

We had our first little geocaching adventure today! I just needed to get out. Still coughing or not I didn’t particularly care. I bundled up warm, took my inhalers, diabetes supplies, water, food and our geocaching kit we put together and went. Initially, we were actually going to drive this afternoon to Berwick (about an hour away) to get me checked out at the walk-in clinic there but my voice and cough have started to improve so we figured we’d give it another day or two and see how I feel on the weekend.

I just really needed to get out. 3 weeks of only leaving the house once or twice (to go to the hospital) and weeks before of rarely leaving have gotten to me and I’m really shack wacky to say the least! So I convinced Edward to go get some gas and pick up a few things at the dollar store, put together a little kit and some supplies and we headed out for a few hours. I’m pretty sure the fresh air did me some good!

Our first stop was near the Digby airport as there was supposedly a cache a few hundred meters off the road into the woods. We searched high and low and couldn’t find anything. It’s great because the geocaching app will lead you right too it, has comments and logs of finds. But we still didn’t find anything. Even with the hints.

What a great idea!

What is geocaching you might ask? To be honest I’d heard of it but really didn’t know much. So, here is a video from geocaching.com to explain:
