Tonight we went to a dinner party with some GeoCaching friends. Geocaching is my family's new hobby. You can go to www.geocaching.com and find of list geocaches in your area. Then you need a GPS to enter the coordinates and then go and find them! It's deceptively easy.
One of our favorite things about GeoCaching is finding trackables. Trackables are items that have a unique ID engraved on them. You log in the trackable code and you can see all of the places that it has been. Next you log in where you drop it off. It's fun to look at a world map crisscrossed with lines and discover that the trackable you are holding has traveled 50,000 miles!
Tonight my son traded some trackables that we had found with others at the party. He entered one of the codes and came to tell my husband that this particular trackable had been to Columbia!
My husband asked, "Where is Columbia?"
My son replied confidently, "Canada!"
My husband was confused. I laughed.
Then I said, "I think you are thinking of British Columbia."
My 7 year old chimed in, "Beautiful British Columbia!"
Just like the license plates say.
We see a lot of Beautiful British Columbia license plates around the Seattle area.
But we have never seen a license plate from Columbia.
