I live in a very small town so when it comes to entertainment, we don't have many options. Growing up we had to be very creative to find something to do. We spent many summer days swimming in my grandmothers pond, playing truth or dare, making forts in the woods, riding our bikes to sonic, and circling my neighborhood in our golf cart.

So this weekend when we didn't have much to do, we decided we would go geocaching. Geocaching is when people place random 'treasures' at different locations, and other people get the GPS coordinates and try to find them. There are thousands around the United States, you would probably be surprised how many there are in your area.

Our first JAUNT was Saturday night, which turned out to be a really bad idea. It was dark so there were lots of bugs and critters out, but we did end up finding one! Inside the little container we found was a log of all the different people that had found this certain geocache. It was interesting because someone else had found that geocache the same day we did.

Our first cache was at the largest pine tree in Arkansas. Who knew it would be in our small little town.

We went back today because it was so dark last night.

We also went to another cache called The Higher Tower. It was quite the adventure. We had to climb a barbed wire fence.

This is the Higher Tower in day light. We revisited this one today.

The Ashley County Museum is also the home to a geocache.

Needless to say our boring weekend ended up really fun. I'm so glad I always had to search for things to do when I was little, I think it made me a more adventuresome person.


  1. when i read "fort" the line in the background made it look like "fart". my chest swelled with pride. then quickly deflated. but i'm impressed nonetheless. can we camp now?

  2. Good for you- make a list & check it off :) Looking forward to stalking your blog!

  3. i'm so glad you did this! i love it...i have a list of caches that i have to complete before the summer is over!!! :)

  4. This looks like fun! And I have to confess something... I was soooo very excited to see on Facebook that you started a blog (!!!!!), so I visited immediately. But before I commented, I got distracted by your list of other blogs, and I wasted lots and lots of time reading those people's blogs. And then I came back the next day and did the same thing. So it took me three visits before I actually commented on your post. Isn't that pathetic?
