My new hobby

Reading The Warren blog on Saturday (http://sockbunnyblog.blogspot.com/2009/01/meet-geocache-bunny.html), I stumbled across the Geobunny’s story (photo above from the blog) and quite fancied a go at Geocaching.

Geocaching is a bit like electronic orienteering, with the hope of finding “treasure” (though usually this is all kinds of tat in a lunchbox to make it less desirable for thieves) or geocoins, which then travel around the world between different geocachers and geocaches. For more information and to find your local sites (there’s more than you think) here: http://www.geocaching.com We found 8 geocaches on Sunday and the OH is even setting his own up today, and a GPS device is on order as we’ve just had to go by the clues so far. It’s amazing how many of these we had passed (in Tesco’s carpark for example) and not known. We’re hooked!

If you like the look of the Sock Bunnies, these can be bought from Anna on Folksy here: http://www.folksy.com/shops/thewarren

    This is the maddest thing I have ever heard of. But also extremely interesting. Will have to find out more.

    Oh, we have a dog called Penny too 🙂

    Sounds crazy, but like it could be fun!

    Although there would be a temptation to put a sock-bunny twist on it, now (photos of all the sock bunnies out there, geocaching happily away)!

    Congratulations on the eight finds, and welcome to the addiction! We’ve been geocaching for over a year now and are having a great time. The snow has been deep this year, so that’s slowed us down a bit. But we managed to find three yesterday.

    Have fun!

    We used to geocache – hopefully will start again when Amelia gets a bit more mobile 😉
