Geocaching Gets the Kids Outside

"I wish they had geocaching class in my 5th grade. We had square dancing." (Latitude 47 blog)
Geocaching is now being promoted as a way to get the kids outside, as you can see in this little YouTube video, a trailer for a longer production.

Well, yeah, maybe. As soon as the *(@$% rain lets up, I plan to hide some geocaches that will require some serious walking. But in my limited experience, you can drive right up to within a few yards of most caches. It's the exceptions that are most memorable. And kudos to the parents who do take their kids to find those kinds of caches.
