While on our RV adventure, we have decided to also start Geocaching everywhere we visit. Geocaching is where you look for containers that someone else has hidden. They post the coordinates on the website which you input into a GPS and then look for it.
We actually use an app on our iPhones that shows you all of the caches in your area, which are more than what you would think. Below is a screen shot of the caches in the Elkview, WV area which is eighteen.

If you are interested in all of the different types of caches go to http://www.geocaching.com/about/cache_types.aspx to read about them.
So far we have found five caches with one pending in the past two days. Well two on the 10th of Oct and three today on the 13th. I was sick on the 11th and 12th in bed, so could not go out yesterday evening.
The five that we had little to no trouble finding are Traditional Caches which had a difficulty level of 2.5 or less out of 5. The one that is pending is a Mystery or Puzzle Cache which I could not figure out while on-site, which is rated a 3.5 for difficulty. After coming back to the RV I sat down and I am pretty sure I broke the code, so will try again tomorrow. It is sometimes hard to concentrate when you have six kids running around in an area where they need to be quite.

Now the question is, when is Ethan and Ian going to catch it since we seem to be passing it around. We are pretty sure we know where Courtney caught it, a couple weeks ago, but who knows, it is that time of the year.
Well that is it for now. God bless and stay safe!

It is now 1:30 am and Ethan just ran to the bathroom sick, so I guess he has the bug now too. Seven down, one to go.
