On a personal note
Everyone needs a hobby!
Mine is deemed interesting by many and bizarre by others.
You see my family and I use multi billion dollar military satellites to find Tupperware containers hidden in the forest full of odd trinkets you may find at a dollar store.
This is actually a worldwide sport called Geocaching and it entails the use of a hand held GPS to locate hidden caches around the world. In a sense you can think of Geocaching as a fusion between orienteering, treasure hunting and hiking.
I have three boys 11 and under and it is a great way to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon.
What is interesting is that there are caches hidden all over the world and most of us walk or drive by them on a weekly basis without even knowing they exist.
