Use GPS To Find Easter Eggs
Thursday, March 18, 2010 17:16 GMTSAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) A campground in San Diego taking the traditional Easter egg hunt in a new, tech-savvy direction.
On March 27, Sacred Rocks Reserve will hold their 2nd Annual Geocaching Easter Egg Hunt, where parents and kids use handheld GPS navigation devices to find hidden treasures outdoors.
Campground co-owner Sharon Courmousis says tokens will be placed in front of geocaches or trackable GPS boxes for hunters to find. Later, they can be cashed in for Easter eggs, prizes, and candy.
But discovering the geocaches will be challenging since Courmousis likes to hide them in unlikely places, not some overt spot.
She typically goes for hollows of trees, tops of boulders, and little nooks and crannies in bushes so that the hunt takes a while.
This gets families climbing and truly exploring the great outdoors and helps them become one with their gadgets.
Afterwards, Courmousis expects people to understand their GPS devices better than ever.
