Bloggy Giveaway - WIN Geo Mate Jr.


So first let' start by explaining what geo caching is - Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment. (From http://www.geocaching.com/) There are 853,346 active geocaches around the world.




Next when I heard we were getting this product to review I had to go out and buy one for my son who LOVES treasure hunts! He was so excited. The first day we looked for 4 caches, and did not find one of them but he still wanted to go back for more. The second day we went out looking for three and found two! He was so excited. Everyday he asks if we can go treasure hunting. The Geo Mate Jr. is really nice because it is VERY child oriented. They took out all the hard caches or the caches that have not been found recently.

I would suggest before heading out check out the cache you are going to find on http://www.geocaching.com/ because they give you "hints" as to where these little things are. Sometimes we found they are as little as a bullet, sometimes they are in key finders, and sometimes they are in formula cans! But the hints at http://www.geocaching.com/ will tell you what sized cache you are looking for. But if you don't want to ruin the surprise just go straight off of you Geo Mate Jr!

The family-friendly Geomate.jr provides everything you need right out of the box to get started on your first geocaching adventure. With about 250,000 preloaded geocaches to find, you’d better get started!

WE LOVE geo caching! This would be awesome to have. We do go online and plan out our caching BUT there have been many times when we get off somewhere and wish that we would have check the site for caches in the area. How wonderful to have them preloaded!
Thanks for the review!

Hi! I am a subscriber! This little tool looks like just the thing to start geocaching with my almost 1st grader! Maybe he'll let his 3 year old sister come along too once in a while!
