For those of you who don't know what that is, don't worry I only found out on Monday. People hide boxes with log books and sometimes items which you can trade with your own, they then post the coordinates online at www.geocaching.com and people set out to find them and log that they've found it.

Joey and I had originally gone to find a micro one on Monday after school however we didn't have any compass type equipment to help us find it. Today, Joey's dad came with us and having an iphone quickly found a compass app to help us. So we trekked up to the woods and set about finding this hidden 'cache'. Joey loved looking through all the leaves and when we finally found it he had a big grin on his face and couldn't wait to open it.

Here he is holding the box, unfortunately we can never get a proper smile from him as he squints his eyes, but this is quite funny:

Joeys first geocache box

Now that I have found a compass for my HTC we will see if we can find the micro one we were unable to find on Monday.
If you fancy having a go in your local area then sign up to www.geocaching.com and join in the exploring. It beats just going for a walk to the middle of nowhere for no reason.

Thanks for looking.
