Geocaching with Uncle Eric

geo•cach•ing - The recreational activity of hunting for and finding a hidden object by means of GPS coordinates posted on a Web site.


My Uncle Eric came up from Florida on Friday to visit my Papa T because my Grandma is in the hospital (as she has been for some time). This afternoon we went to Corning to go get groceries and coffee and such. We had just come out of the Soulful (our favorite coffee shop) and were walking down the side walk when my Uncle (whom it turns out likes geocaching) started seeing objects on the GPS on his blackberry just a little way off from our location. We ended up spending most of the rest of that day Geocaching in Corning and back in Pennsylvania (who would have thought people hid that sort of thing near our house, actually we didn't find those, so we may never know). We found two in Corning, or rather Uncle Eric did. Here are some photos from the day:
