A high-tech scavenger hunt has more than five million people around the country taking part. One Abilene couple who are experienced "geocachers" mean business.
Jay Love, an avid geocacher says, "Geocaching is a high-tech Easter egg hunt for big and little kids."
Love and his wife Joyce have been geocaching for about a year and a half. It's a sort of scavenger hunt that anyone can participate in across the country. Satellite coordinates are posted online and through gps or smartphone, you get the clues to find the "cache".
"It can be ammo cans, five gallon buckets, just something that is waterproof," says Love.
This hobby has taken the Loves to eighteen states and led them on countless adventures.
Love adds, "The main idea of geocashing is to sign your name to the log sheet. That proves you have found it."
Love says when searching for geocaches, he tries to find something that looks out of place in the environment like, for example, this pen, which is just one of hundreds hidden within the city.
And there are over a million more hidden around the country. After this weekend, the couple will have hit sites in all 254 counties in the Lone Star state.
"We still lack three more counties, which we're going to take off after work today to El Paso just to find three geocaches in three counties," says Love.
This isn't a cheap hobby, once you factor in hotel stays and ever sky-rocketing gas prices. But Love says the adventure is worth the cost.
Love says, "Not too many people have traveled all over Texas and we've been in every county."
And accomplished something in every single one.
