Families find outdoor adventure with fun and inexpensive games.

These are not video games, but are scavenger hunts using free apps on any smart phone.

Geocaching (GEE-o CASH-ing), spelled g-e-o-c-a-c-h-i-n-g, uses G-P-S coordinates to find hidden containers nearby.

WIGSmp3  0:08   “There are more than two (m) million geocaches in over   one-hundred-and-85 countries and over six (m) million geocachers worldwide.”

There is one called “Argo Gold” on the campus of University of Great Falls in Montana.  The website is www.geocaching.com.

Munzee (MUN-zee) is a paperless scavenger hunt using Q-R code scanned with a free smartphone app.

Munzee started in 20-11 and has grown to just about every continent.

According to co-developer Josh Terkelsen (TERK-el-sun), Munzee is a “geo-location game, it’s a scavenger hunt, it’s a smartphone game.”

One interesting Munzee is the “Galerie Trinitas” (GAL-uh-ree TRIN-i-tus) on the      U-G-F campus.  Sign up at www.munzee.com for more information.

Choose one or choose both, but get out for new adventures.
