People are still reading paper books. Here’s your proof. On a recent visit to the Mighty Mighty Cache (the official geocache site of the Lopresti family) my daughters and I discovered not one, but all seven of our buried bookmarks missing. If you are unfamiliar with geocaching, it’s an outdoor treasure hunt game where people bury containers (called caches) for other people to locate with their GPS’s and dig up. The caches contain small objects for the finder to take or trade. Here’s what we put in our cache in order of popularity:
- A five pack of silly bands (grabbed up the first day.)
- Our logbook. This shouldn’t have gone missing, but it got waterlogged and some unknown, very kind person replaced it, leaving the following note: “Everything is super-soaked. Needs a Shamwow!” (We may not have perfected the system of geocaching yet, particularly the part where the instructions tell you to use a watertight canister.)
- A six-pack of stickers
- The seven bookmarks
- One McDonald happy meal toy plastic doll
- A child’s necklace
- Captain America, a plastic ring, and a rubber duckie (Still there. Up for grabs if you want them.)
Here’s the link if you want to do some geocaching or if you feel like digging up the Mighty Mighty Cache. Good luck, and don’t forget to take the bookmarks!
How about you? What would you take? Have you done any geocaching? Are you surprised that the bookmarks were so popular?
