Who wants to go to the Green Gulch Trail in Dewey for Geocaching?
This is a fun & challenging activity, which is enjoyed by enthusiasts around the world. The object is fairly simple: Using GPS coordinates, locate hidden containers, which will contain a logbook/sheet & sometimes, small items for trading. The challenge is to navigate the surrounding terrain & pinpoint the location.
Some hiking is involved. 2 - 3 miles is typical. Terrain may be steep, rugged or rocky.
By its very nature, this is NOT a fast-paced activity.
A handheld GPS device or geocaching phone app is helpful, but not required in this case. The iPhone app can be downloaded from the iPhone App Store. The smartphone (Android) app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.
A pen or pencil, notepad & extraction tool such as tweezers may be useful. Small items for trading are optional, but will add to the fun.
For more information, go to www.geocaching.com.
The weather may be chilly, so dress accordingly.
Be sure to wear comfortable walking/hiking shoes.
A water bottle is recommended. First aid kit & sunscreen might also be a good idea. A camera might come in handy.
Well-behaved dogs on leash are welcome.
Let's meet by the trail head a little early if possible.
Afterwards, we can meet for lunch at Guido's Pizza
