Now that summer is here, it is a great time for outdoor adventures and fresh air. One family activity my kids especially enjoy is called Geocaching“ a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices”. Beyond the excitement of looking for outdoor treasure in hidden containers, Geocaching gives us exercise by riding our bikes while using the Geocache app to find local sites.
When I was asked to join in a campaign for the new movie “Earth to Echo” and document our own sponsored adventure using the Go-Pro 3 – I could not wait! It was a great opportunity to spend quality time with my teen and document it with the GoPro. Check out the bottom of this post for the video of our geocaching adventure!
Watching the trailer for the new movie (coming out July 2nd), I was reminded of my favorite childhood family films like E.T. which capture the excitement of an adventure between friends. “Earth to Echo” has the added twist of some new modern technology and a mysteriously cute alien.
Here is more information about Earth to Echo from the movie’s press release:
“Friendship is the greatest adventure of all. Earth To Echo – In theaters July 2, 2014.
Tuck, Munch and Alex are a closely bonded trio of inseparable friends, but their time together is coming to an end. Their neighborhood is being destroyed by a highway construction project that is forcing their families to move away. But just two days before they must part ways, the boys find a cryptic signal has infected their phones.
Convinced something bigger is going on and looking for one final adventure together, they set off to trace the messages to their source and discover something beyond their wildest imaginations: hiding in the darkness is a mysterious being, stranded on Earth, and wanted by the government.
This launches the boys on an epic journey full of danger and wonder, one that will test the limits of their friendship and change all of their lives forever.
Cast: Ella Linnea Wahlestedt, Reese Hartwig, Teo Halm and Brian “Astro” Bradley.
