When I first met Jacob...We became friends due to lots of silly things. One of these things was a love of treasure hunts. I had just started reading about geocaching and he was super interested..So together we decided to give it a go!
I wanted to do something around the whole querrilla art scene first of all.. Incorporating knitted tags..secret postcards and a postbox to mail them into once done. I thought this would be absolutely AMAZING! So...We went for it!
But sadly the first little tag was stolen within days and we found it really complicated to set up the whole postcard idea!
However...This little guy survived! He looks a bit shabby! But he's still there now!
Then we tried the whole letterboxing idea..Made a stamp and everything!
We even bought a book!
But people are so so mean! And they smashed the whole thing up and threw the stamp in the river! :( SAD! So we concentrated on finding treasure.. We didn't do so well! The whole geocaching scene didn't seem to be happening round here!
But TODAY!! That all changed because with the awesome Geocaching application for my new iPhone..
We found out that there were actually 3 hidden around our local area.. 10 minutes away actually...So we head out!
And found... Our first one!!
WOAH! Crocodile shaped! COOOOL!
With the log hidden inside!
And.. Our second one!
Full of awesome goodies..
We couldn't find the third one...But never mind, we had so much fun.. It even inspired our doodle schmoodles "If you go down to the woods"
See how inspired we were.. We both had the same idea! Cute huh??
Go try geocaching for yourself.. It's awesome fun!!
