    We do not geocache but are seriously thinking about doing it. Do you have any advice for a newbie? Any recommendations for a good GPS?
    Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

      I'm a geocacher.

      Most of my geocaching is done when were are out camping in our RV.

      I like to start travel bugs. Some of them have over 6,000 miles logged.

      Check me out over on Geocaching - The Official Global GPS Cache Hunt Site
      I'm drfife there as well as here.

      I downloaded Geocache Navigator to my Blackberry. It's handy to have the info without printing paper at home. But the GPS accuracy is not so good. I still use my old Garmin eTrex Legend as my main GPS.

        I used to geocache, and my wife enjoyed it wAAAAAY more than I thought she would. But we haven't been geocaching in over a year since Jessie was born.

          One of my travel bugs is currently in Washington State.

          (TB1D0RP) Travel Bug Dog Tag - drfife's Silver Hat Travel Bug

          It was dropped off 10/19/08 in this cache:
          GC10XZ5 Celebrating 100 Hides: Johnson Butte (Traditional Cache) in Washington, United States created by WR7X

          Looks like it's south of Kennewick, WA.

            Go to Geocaching - The Official Global GPS Cache Hunt Site and do a search within five miles of your home and start there. We use Garmin (I believe without looking at it) but it's the larger hand held, so I can see the screen without putting on my reading glasses.
            This is a fun sport...I LOVE finding the travel bugs and the geo-coins. With the number on a travel bug you can log that into the geocaching website and see where it started and where it wants to go. Our first travel bug started in the Netherlands.
            Have FUN! It's worth purchasing a handheld GPS.

              Check out the upcoming Delorme PN-40. It sounds good.

                This is all new to me... never knew such a hobby existed until this thread.

                This is really interesting. So you just go around hiding things - and looking for things that other people hid... wow!!

                May I ask... what is the oddest place you've ever hidden and/or found something?

                  The oddest geocache I found was in a lake! It was inside a thermos that was attached to a lightweight boat anchor. The water was about chest deep. We found it by feeling with our feet.

                  Here's a link to the cache:

                  GC15H0B Blub (Traditional Cache) in Texas, United States created by Dawgies

                  I dropped off one of my travel bugs in it. JEBar might recall the item. I bought it with Jim at the National Cowboy Museum in Oklahoma City last July.

                      I was introduced to geocaching by a member of my local camping group.

                      Several of our group members are now into geocaching and go out as a team looking for caches at our group campouts.

                      It's great fun. Especially when you do it with others.

                      My kids really got into it as well. It gives a purpose to taking a hike.

                      Check it out.

                        LOVE Geocaching....

                        Those "micros" can be hair pullers though.:Scratch-Head: heehee

                        We have two near our house but have to wait till the rattlesnakes are tucked in for the winter before we go "log" them. My son killed two and my husband killed one within the last week so they're still out moving around.:nope:

                        We've only logged 80+, we found several that made us go, "now that's a great hide".

                        It's such a great family, including the geo doggies, family activity.

                          Over 18,000 miles!! It was recently retrieved by a trucker who has dipped it into caches from coast to coast. He's posted a bunch of pictures as well.
