We're just using my phone as the GPS with the official app. We headed out yesterday with the plan to find 2 caches.
The first location is only a few minutes from our home at this lovely wetlands area. I've actually walked in this area before with a friend but it was Billy's first time there.
We spent over an hour looking for the cache but to no avail! However, we did get up close and personal with a mob of kangaroos who decided to bound past about 5 metres away from where we were.
We headed home disappointed...
Undaunted, we went back out today. We went to the 2nd site first and found the cache easily. That cheered us up!
While we were there, we decided to play tourist in our own town and went for a ride on the mini train around the lake :)
After our success, we headed back for the original cache and found it within a couple of minutes - and yes, we had been searching very close to it!
We're already planning our next search! It's great fun, good exercise, out in the fresh air and we get to see some lovely places. What's not to like?!
