Does anyone have experience with Geocaching?

I am a bit of a Geography nerd and like my walks and cycle rides so seems like something that would work well together but still a bit confused on the whole idea.

Downloaded the Geocaching app at the weekend and headed to a 'spot' nearby which was marked as a geocache but didn't really know what I was looking for, just felt like I must have looked like a bit of weirdo peering into a bush.

Any advice appreciated!

I did it a few years back when the kids were younger, as a cheap way of getting them out and they loved it. Finding a little treasure box made it exciting for them but it lost its appeal quite quickly, when after hours of effort you find a box filled with lentils.

Enjoyable. Takes some getting used to with the hints, but there are some very clever ones with my favourite being on Kellaway Avenue by Horfield Common.

One thing you can definitely benefit from is finding some good walking routes and scenery that you wouldn’t otherwise come across, whether you find them or not!
