    Norty,
    If you get into it you will find it can be addictive. A lot of fun. I would suggest you get a GPS that you can download the caches directly from your computer. I use Garmin but others are available as well. Right now I use a Garmin GPX 76Cxs and a Garmin Colorado. The Colorado holds all the cache information including all notes, logs and descriptions. They also have a touch screen "Oregon." That does the same thing. Paperless is the way to go. Also, the cheaper GPS60 Csx is a good option. Caches can be downloaded but not the description in the GPS. You would just make paper notes. Another thing I do is use a Garmin Nuvi in the truck with caches loaded to it. While in the Truck it will guide you as close as a road will go. Then use the handheld.

    Enjoy

      Recent Hunt

      Dan & I are really new at geocaching. I like hiking, and he seems more inclined to go if he has something to do, a purpose for the walk. We recently took a short hike at Tugaloo SP with my cousin & his wife after a very nice lunch (they live next to the park, literally), and we found the cache there. GA state parks has their own little booklet where you can keep track of your finds in the state parks. I didn't think about it when we were at Tugaloo, but there are supposed to be stamps in the boxes so that you can get little prizes from the park when you get so many stamped in your booklet.

      We won't do it everywhere we go, but it is a fun way to spend an afternoon.

              We still geocache at state and COE's. The phone apps have made it much easier. All the Texas State Parks have at least one geocache.

                        Thanks for the info. I haven't geocached in a couple of years due to having to download caches onto my GPS, etc. It got to be kind of a pain in the neck. Now, with the iPhone it seems to be quite simple, no extra equip or steps. Now that I broke my foot windsurfing, I guess I'll have to try some other activities for a while. I bought a fishing pole and now may try a little geocaching.

                          Not going to use the fish pole as a cane are you?

                          Hope it heals quickly.

                            Well, I might as well have used it as a cane today for all the fish I didn't catch.

                            Thanks for the good wishes.

                              Geocache - Sometimes

                              We will do some geocaching if there happens to be something in the park where we're staying. Otherwise, we don't really actively seek them out in other areas. It is fun though.
