Geocaching–ever heard of it?

I’m shocked that I’ve never heard of this great new sport before–geocaching! It sounds like orienteering but with cool technical gadgets and bizarre intellectual riddles. Apparently they do it in Sweden. I wonder if it’s arrived here yet… It sounds like great fun…

What led me to this particular topic? Well, I got an alert on a blog post on Early Medieval Thuringia. Why would I be following random links to early medieval blog posts a half hour past midnight? ‘Cause I’m trying to get a syllabus for this semester put together before the family arrives home tomorrow morning. It’s coming…slowly.

Anyway–read this.

  1. i have some friends who do it. bloggy friends, anyway. They live in scotland now, but used to live in washington state. in fact, they used to have a geocaching blog, I think.

  2. Your profile says you are in the United States. If that is correct, that is where Geocaching (geocaching.com) started, around 2000 or 2001… I believe most of the Geocaches are in North America.
