Cousin's First Time Geocaching Geocaching.com has reached out to me and asked me to promote their Gear Up for Geocaching giveaway. They've decided to give away gear packages to three lucky individuals. Featuring gear from brands such as Camp ChefMountainsmithGreenlayer7eyeMHMKor and Skratch Labs, each of the three prize packages is worth nearly $600. In addition, they are giving away a free one-year Geocaching Premium Membership to each package winner.

Be sure to tell them I sent you!

My own personal geocaching experiences have been mostly positive. Hiking with children can be challenging. Giving them a goal, like a waterfall or a summit register can be great, but having geocaches along the way can go a long way toward making a hiking a truly enjoyable experience for children. The only downside is that some geocaches can be hard to find or are no longer there. But that's all part of geocaching and makes finding a cache that much more special.
