Geocaching

Believe it or not, your GPS can do more than find the nearest Taco Bell. Geocaching is a communal outdoor treasure hunt that uses GPS coordinates to direct you to a hidden cache of—something. The spot might contain a keepsake you swap out for one of your choosing, or simply a list of previous explorers to add your name to. Most local parks—including Shawnee Lookout in North Bend and Big Bone Lick State Historic Site in Union—allow you to register and hide a geocache for free, then post the location to geocaching.com. It’s guaranteed to be the most fun you’ve ever had with a GPS—no U-turns required.
