WHAT IS GEOCACHING? – (Excerpt)
Have you ever dreamed of finding lost treasure like Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn did? Maybe you were intrigued with the adventures of Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins in the classic story, Treasure Island. If you prefer movies, then perhaps the puzzle solving skills of Benjamin Franklin Gates and Abigail Chase in the “National Treasure” series pique your interest.
All of these captivating stories reflect many peoples’ fantasies about finding lost treasure while at the same time inspiring us to seek adventure, solve complicated riddles, and find a chest overflowing with gold doubloons and silver chalices studded with shimmering red rubies. If you fit into this group, and most of us do, then you’re going to like what we have to tell you about geocaching.
Geocaching is a new kind of hybrid sport that assimilates some of the most up-to-date technology into traditional recreational activities such as hiking, biking, and swimming. Adding the dimension of an occasional brainteaser into the mix enhances the activity’s appeal tremendously….
Fake Bird Cache Instructions – EXAMPLE
1You’ll need to find a wooden bird; Google and eBay are your friends for this. When we looked, we located sources for a couple of different wooden birds that way.
2 Now that you have your wooden bird, you need to turn it into a geocache. Start by cutting or drilling a hole into the back of the bird. Make the hole large enough so that you can slide a bison tube into it, but it still fits snugly. Be sure the lid of the bison tube sticks out above the surface of the wood.
3 Use super-glue to hold the lower portion of the bison
tube in place and wait for it to dry.
4 Once dry, add one of the bison tube logs found in the back of this book and screw the lid into place.
5 Find a stick to attach your bird cache to. Make sure the stick is large enough so that you can wedge it into a tree properly. Use wire or glue to secure the bird to the stick. You just want to make sure that your feathered friend holds tightly to his perch.
Place the cache and enjoy!
