Free Geocaching Trackable from Geico

Geico is offering a free trackable to geocachers.  For those new to geocaching, here is the definition from

GEOCACHING is a real-world outdoor treasure hunting game. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using GPS-enabled devices and then share their experiences online. 

We've been geocaching for a year and find it a fun way to get outside and explore new public access places close to home.  We've found some great hiking areas we never would have discovered otherwise.

The trackables are objects that have a unique code which people move from cache to cache.  We just placed our first trackable and are sending it on a mission.  We plan to place a Dadstruction trackable and will post updates on its journey on the site.  I think this will be a fun way to teach the kids a little geography as we watch our trackable travel across the country.
