geo caching...

so paula and chad stopped by my house this weekend... they were traveling back to chattanooga from a week spent in washington DC. it was a blast to have them here. just a night and morning with a best friend... in a city of strangers... is such precious time. i wish it lasted longer!

anyway for an afternoon adventure we went geocaching. its basically using a GPS to go treasure hunting. go to www.geocaching.com to check it out. you get coordinates- plug them into a handheld gps and go looking for something. you never quite know what it is... could be a film canister... could be a big box. but its kept hidden... so people dont run off with it.

anyway we went out and were 1 for 1. found one treasure, but could not find the other. it really was a lot of fun. the one that we did find had a scroll inside to sign our names. the last time it was found was actually last week! tons of folks had signed it... and it had been hidden for over a year! the folks who signed it before us were from canada! so its really cool. and was fun. here are a few pics from our adventure!
