For this week’s activity we learned about Geocaching and how to use it. This was my first time using this app. I was a little bit worried about not being able to find someone’s geocache but once I started looking for one at my school it became really fun. I was extremely excited when I found my first geocache and it wasn’t that difficult to find it. It was fun looking at all the small items that were inside the Altoids tin can. There was a toy soldier and a one direction pin. I also really like the location of this geocache because it was behind a metal sign by the stairs of the school’s parking structure. (By the way it was my Professor’s geocache😁)
After I found my first geocache I wanted to look for another one that was nearby but unfortunately I couldn’t find it and gave up. Then there was another geocache at my school and that one was easy to find. I was a little worried about what people would think because I was looking around some bushes and trees and maybe I looked like a weirdo. Also because it’s a busy street and there’s always cars passing by or people walking to class. This geocache had a few items so it wasn’t that interesting to look at but I was happy that I found it. Overall this game was a lot of fun and it makes me want to go find more geocaches. It opened my eyes to this new world of geocaching and I think it’s awesome that many people have participated in this game.
I had some difficulty figuring out where to place my geocache but I finally decided to hide it at my school. I’m excited to see if people will find my geocache and what items will be traded in my tin can. The items that I put in my tin can are a Sandy keychain, bracelet, Hello Kitty paper and a corona bottle cap. Also a little pink note pad for people to sign in.
