    Recently got into it and even got something out of it:D...while giving something up.:eek:

    I might get into it, just find an old ammo can or water tight container and find some stuff and a couple geocoins.

    My brother and his wife are big-time fans of geocaching. I have not tried it yet.

    Yeah, the wife and I go out once in a while although we've been negligent as of late. I built a removable, adjustable PC stand for the Jeep. We run DeLorme TOPO program on a Dell laptop and look for the caches way out. We've done a few in close but we figure if it "ain't worth a Jeep ride" it is not worth looking for.:D
    We really need to get a hand held device to supplement the PC as I just about broke my neck trying to follow a non established trail getting to a set of coordinates.:rolleyes:

    Fortunately Geo's aren't very fast and not that hard to cach.:D

    You don't see many GEO's on the road anymore they must be cached :eek:
     
  7. Ya I go out to find them myself. I have a little over 600 finds and about 25 hides. It can be a lot of fun! My kids really like getting out there and finding caches.

    Oh.... I get it! You want me to use google. All I know is that, if you gave me a bucket of cache I still wouldn't take a geo.

    Garmin makes a small hand held unit called ETREX, check it out! I love mine! It goes with me anytime I'm in the woods.

    I have a little over 600 finds and about 25 hides. I fracked-up my first skinning attempt and nicked the scent gland! It was a month before anyone would let me on the elevator! Ruint a perfectly good hide, too!

    I have always wanted to try it, but I have not yet bought a GPS unit. Also, so far I haven't been able to talk any of my friends into trying it with me, and it just seems like one of those things that wouldn't be as much fun alone.

    You're right. The banter and strategy in finding a well stashed cache is the fun.

    Basically people hide things and put the locations online in like latitude and longitude and you gotta use your GPS to find them. Generally speaking, I believe, you leave something in place of what you find.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong, or feel free to add some details :D
