But there are other incentives to this adventure.
Discovering the vast spectacle of our American wilderness may ignite a greater passion to explore. And it may help your younger family members to connect with the adventurous spirit of their own parents.
Leaving no visible trace behind, you can purposefully conceal small, secure, time capsules in the remote back country.
Our own time capsules have been intentionally (and legally) placed in regions that force an outdoor commitment.
Small, concealed caches are now spirited away in spectacular mountains of Idaho, along the Pacific Coast of Washington, and somewhere in the undiscovered wilds of Montana. But there are closer places as well.
The hiding of time capsules as a fun adventure will appeal to outdoor enthusiasts of all stripes: geocachers, future explorers, scavenger hunters, or even casual adventurers.
Time in a Capsule, An Adventure for Your Descendants, encourages others to create an experience for bridging the generations.
Combining wilderness treks with GPS technology is already an international pastime. But adding a time capsule to the mix brings an element of family adventure and generational connection.
Timeinacapsule.com demonstrates how your family and friends can plan a short or long-term journey through time.
