People from all walks of life enjoy geocaching. It's a great way to have some fun, get some fresh air and exercise, and spend time with the kids. (or alone)
Since geocaching is like a treasure hunt and most geocaches will include something for the kids and they love it.
Since there are over 1 million caches hidden worldwide it's easy to find ones that are easy enough to take the kids along.
Geocaches are not just hidden in the wilderness, there are caches hidden in small towns and cities as well.

The biggest disadvantage to geocaching with an android is the fact that, unlike a handheld gps your android is not waterproof or durable.

If you decide that you really want to continue geocaching then I highly recommend that you buy a real geocaching gps. An entry level gps can be purchased for around $50!
