GPS tracker: A spooktacular time
It’s Halloween week and it’s pretty difficult not to take notice of the crisp, cool air. In a few days the sounds of kids roaming around your neighborhood and the crunching leaves under foot will fill the air. Perhaps your own children will contribute to the trick-or-treat crowds. In the meantime, you may be wondering if there is any good, clean fun to be had. Passing the days until “treat day” can be so much more fun than simply checking off the date on the calendar. The answer is right under your noses! GPS tracker software, of course! The GPS tracker maps can be used for geocaching which is a family friendly, fun-filled activity perfect for Halloween week.
There’s just something about Halloween that stirs up geocaching excitement. In many cities people will create a series of Halloween-inspired caches so that you can enjoy a treasure hunting experience right in your home town. If you’re following a set-up by another individual then most likely you will be following the latitude and longitude of single pin-pointed locations which may or may not be related. Using the GPS tracker shouldn’t be too difficult and most caches will be simple, but keep in mind the difficulty levels may vary so that may help you decide which Halloween-themed caches to look for based on your children’s ages. Some caches might drive you a little batty!
If you own your own GPS tracker, you could get creative and create your own geocaching course and if your children are young do it with them. There could be actual “treats” waiting for them or you could personally reward them for finding the next clue. If you have older teens able to drive themselves, it could be fun to use your GPS tracker’s advanced route planner. With this option, you can use the GPS tracker map to draw out the entire route and save it in the system. That way your teens would just have to follow the liner route to get to their next “treat” location. For a more difficult experience, you could just give them clues leading to a set latitude and longitude of a location which has the clue for the next spot.
Whether you choose to use your GPS tracker for a spooktacular time or you choose some other activity, just remember to be safe!
