Geo App Treasure Hunt
We recently had guests stay to do some geocaching along the Tarka Trail which sounded like great fun to get exercise and fresh air whilst searching treasure. I think the idea is to take an object for someone else to find and take the one that someone else has left. It could end up in Australia as people travel with their treasure and look for new ones. This is described as the largest treasure hunt in the world,so just get the app from google and you can follow where your object goes on a map.You will need to join to find out where to search in North Devon.
