The boys are working on Boys Scout merit badges and one of them is Geocaching. Throughout the spring they have completed several fun geocaching projects. The last one was looking for local geocaches. We set out on our bikes, getting exercise and completing a merit badge at the same time seemed like a fantastic idea.

We looped around our development to hit a few of the 'super easy' geocaches to get warm up for finding one that was a bit more disguised but was able to accept a traveling bug. We parked our bikes and began to wander around, ducking under branches, climbing over brush and twigs, scanning the ground for a possible hideout. Our careful search was soon rewarded and the bug deposited in its 'hotel.' Now the boys are watching online to see if someone is picking up the bug and giving it a ride to another cache...
