Geocaching With A Smartphone Instead Of Using A Lensatic Compass

Geocaching is played by using a Smartphone and an app. The game is played in many of the Texas State Parks. “Caches” are prize-filled containers, that are hidden in many different places in the park. You can also use a GPS system.

If you are out camping in a Texas State Park you might want to check it out. Could be fun for the whole family.

The state parks also teach you at area workshops on how to play geocaching. How did we ever survive without the Smartphone! A lensatic compass can tell us the same directions, but it doesn’t have the satellite receiver.
