geocaching: what it is & why we're hooked #weteach Have YOU tried it yet?
We've done both. The kids love geocaching but I love letterboxing. It's artsier. I loved teaching my kids to carve rubber stamps (something I'd been doing for years). I do make them embroider little insect motifs to leave in geocaches, though. Actually, they enjoy it...and we have even been collected!
friends--i had NO idea how much fun it could be, but Janna Mauldin Heiner I do want to try letterboxing too! baby steps, right?
:^ ) Sometimes there's a letterbox close to a cluster of geocaches. Letterboxers are less in population, but if a place is popular with geocachers it will sometimes attract a letterbox. So when you check your geocaching coordinates webstie, check the letterboxing websitejust to see if there's one nearby. You can use a commercial stamp at first, but it's really best to carve your own--it's the creativity we love!
I do enjoy the letterboxing more than geocaching right now - the coordinates have to be just right to find the cache. For us, the clues for the letterboxes have been an easier find. Janna Mauldin Heiner I love the idea of carving your own! Never thought of that - we've talked about setting a box/cache, that would be cool to have your own stamp too!
