Earlier this week, we headed out on a road trip. We grabbed the handheld GPS and found the coordinates for several geocaches in the area we were heading.
We forgot to check the batteries.
We grabbed 2 batteries out of the drawer but didn’t check them. We got to the location, grabbed the GPS…. and it wouldn’t power on.
Fortunately, we had just seen a little gas station around the corner so we were able to buy 2 AA batteries for less than $3.50 and we were ready to hunt for our cache.
We took along my Dad for his first ever geocaching experience.
And we found the cache!!!
This was a great adventure for a day when the local bank showed the temperature to be 106 degrees. We were able to ride in an air conditioned vehicle, drink lots of water and still find our hidden treasure.
Have you done a geocache hunt recently? I’d love to hear your best tip!
