Here is the instant replay of MommaJam on 95.9 WATD-FM on Oct. 6, 2011 where we talk about Geocaching on the South Shore with Rob Hakala and Lisa Azizian.  News reporter Steve Dodrill chimes in with his favorite spots to hunt for themed geocaches.

Getting Started with Geocaching

To get started, go to Geocaching.com for a $10 membership for 3 months.  This gives you access to longitude and latitude coordinates that you plug into a GPS device or a smart phone that has the geocaching app on it.  Then, you set out on trails to find trinkets stashed in containers tucked under logs or hidden in trees.

Geocaching is a great way to learn navigation skills because you need to understand how to use a compass.  It’s a good idea to print out maps and location information ahead of time because it’s easy to get lost if you can’t read your compass correctly.

One key rule when you geocache:  If you take a trinket, leave a trinket.

For more information, check out my geocaching article, “High Tech Hunt” in the October 2011 issue of South Shore Living.

Enjoy!
