Off the Beaten Path - GPS takes you there and back
Outdoor, travel and history site by two retired Boomers. It combines geocaching and related activities with history, travelogues, tips and commentary. Our quests include historical sites, forts, battlefields, ghost towns, parks, urban exploration and back country wilderness enhanced by assorted GPS apps and devices. We seek out little known places to explore and write about. The more challenging they are, the better. We hope to promote lifelong learning and curiosity about our world, especially in young people. If you are looking for ideas to teach and motivate kids, get them active outside and have some fun together, this site offers a lot. There's no armchair traveling. We've been to every place on these pages. The pictures and content are ours. Most of it is Off the Beaten Path.
