SC STARS go Geocaching!

SC DEN Stars had a great time on Saturday, May 30th, at the first annual DEN Geocaching Day.

We met at the West Columbia Riverwalk and spent the morning looking for geocaches. Families were invited and this was a great time for children and adults as we went under bridges, over rocks, and into holes to find the caches.

The morning culminated with us planting a DEN travel bug and placing our own geocache. You can start tracking the progress of our travel bug by getting a login to http://www.geocaching.com and going to this link.
Use the travel bug lookup (upper right of the screen) and paste in this number: TB2JWYH. travel_bug

You can track our Discovery cache by going here. The cache name is River Monsters.

Did you attend the event? Tell us about your experiences by posting a comment to the blog below. Didn’t get to attend, but are an avid Geocache fan? Share with the DEN how you use GPS activities in your school or classroom, or just tell us your favorite story about searching for caches!

    Thanks for a great opportunity! We found one near our home that afternoon and are currently on the hunt for Reptilian Briars!
