Geocaching is a community outdoor treasure hunt played all over the world.

Now, as nothing seems to be normal anymore, that routine looks quite a bit different for many households. Instead of getting the kids ready for school, packing their lunches, and getting them to their bus stop, parents are getting their kids up and ready, turning on the computer, and going to the next room to work while they oversee distance

These alternative weddings are not necessarily spontaneous and unplanned, they are not done solely because of family challenges
