Everyone has time saving tips in their life. From getting the a guy in to mow your lawns or ordering your grocery’s online there’s some weeks where asking for help keeps you sane! This date idea is one of those – it’s called Geocaching! Geocaching is also a great date idea for opposite personalities.
Right now, less than 30 minutes drive from where you’re reading this, someone’s hidden a treasure box known as a Geocache. Along the way they’ve marked down the GPS coordinates so others can find it – and find it you can!
When you do there will be 10 or so small toys or nic-nacs in a box. The idea is you take one out and put one of your own back for someone else to find!
All you need is a phone, the Geocaching app ($10) and some spirit of adventure!
