It's a global treasure hunt where you register online to play, login, read the clues, add the GPS location into your GPS, put on your walking shoes and head outside into the world and discover interesting places and history all over the land... and ultimately, find the Geocache and log your visit.
Dave and I went out a few weekends ago on a walk to find some of the local Nth Sydney Geocaches. Did we find any? Bzzzzt. NO. We did the same thing yesterday and even went to try and find the ones we hadn't found previously. I'm so crapat it. It really annoys me when I read the comments by others who have found these things and they say "Easy find, my 10th for the day!" or "I stood back and there it was, an easy find". Maybe I'm just not geeky enough for this game.
But as with all Geocaching outings I did find something. I've found parks and places that I never knew existed. Some of them are tiny little gems tucked away in the urban mass. One like the above. This is Sawmiller's Reserve. It even has a ship wreck on it's banks. This spot is very beautiful. There's a "tree house" structure for kids and you can even bring the dogs. And what a view. "A nice spot for a get-together" I thought.
Hmmm... So, here's my plan: I'm going to open up my birthday invitation to all bloggers and readers to come along to meet up and have a picnic on Australia day. Details will follow.
