Shaylin was the one who found our first geocache of the day. I swear she has a radar for them because more times than not we are there a few minutes and she comes up with the cache.
A few tips for those we are beginners to geocaching:
1. Dress for the weather. (sunscreen, good shoes, water)
2. Charge up your devices.
3. Bring a pen and trinkets.
4. Caches come in all size from nano to large be sure to know what size you are looking for.

Alyssa is hunting for a cache under a tank locally. We didn't find it. I am not sure if it was moved or taken but one day we will head back to see if we can find it.
I have to say wearing comfortable footwear is my best tip because you will be walking and hiking through some different terrains. My best advice is to have fun and enjoy your time geocaching with your family and the new experiences and things you find along the way.
