"Do not be anxious about anything but in everything through prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:6-7

Christmas Geocaching

We spent Sunday afternoon with Dana and Matt geocaching. For those of you who do not know what that is let me give you a brief definition. "Geocaching is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure. A geocacher can place a geocache in the world, pinpoint its location using GPS technology and then share the geocache’s existence and location online. Anyone with a GPS unit can then try to locate the geocache."

It is like a treasure hunt. Using a GPS unit, you find the item based on GPS coordinates that are online on their website.  When you find the treasure, you leave your name or team name and date on a "log" that is usually in a container and place the container back where you found it. Yes, there are some rules and if you go to http://www.geocaching.com you can read all about it.

It is a wonderful opportunity to get out and enjoy the outdoors and fellowship with a group of friends or family. We did this with them in Los Angeles. There are treasures scattered all over Georgia for you to find,  We found 4 out of 5 caches that we went to. You gotta try it.

Here are some photos we took.
