So many parents are looking for a way to get their kids off of video games. Before they can even start talking to them about self reliance or preparedness, they have to get them off the gaming systems. It can be a real struggle.
Family buy in for preppers can be one of the toughest hurdles to face in the early days. Its a real struggle to get people to buy into what you are doing. For the most part it can be opposition due to fear or a gap in understanding.
Some people just don’t have the bandwidth to deal with all the worlds problems.
What if you could provide a new game for kids to play? What if you could offer up a game that forced them outside and into the woods? Well, outside of Pokémon Go that might seem like a pipe dream.
Geochaching is an interactive treasure hunt, for all intensive purposes. You use the GPS linked to your phone and travel all around your area, or even the world, looking for various geocaches. These could range inside from something like an ammo can to something like a small vile. Each will have a notepad inside and when you find the cache you sign it, as a log of who has been there.
All you need to start geocaching is the app and a phone. From here you are going to be presented with a map of geocaches in your area. The more populated or busy your area the more there will be to find.
Use this as a way to get your kids outside! Get them into geocaching and going on these treasure hunts. The geocaching website also offers tee shirts and all sorts of other fun things to do in the geocaching world.
While its not a talk about prepping skills its a game based around some of its principles.
