Now I know that today being Black Friday, many people are more focused on spending money than on free activities, but I still want to do this week’s Free Fun Friday Post.

One of the members on my forum is really fond of geocaching, and if you have a GPS unit already, it’s a great way to get your family out and about.

People participate all over the world, hiding geocoins in caches for others to find. They take them along on trips to help them move to a goal, and there’s a degree of competitiveness about being the first to find a new cache.

It sounds to me like it’s a great way to discover new places where you live, as well as the places you go when you travel. I haven’t tried it myself yet, but only because I don’t own a GPS.
