I know there are several people here who are into geocaching...Ozzy and Elgecko to name a couple. *I was just curious to see if there were any others here are geocachers.
I am trying my hand at it although ever since I got my GPSr, I haven't had much time to go hunting. *I have found a grand total of 3 caches...2 micros and one regular. *There are 3 others that have eluded me. *I am hoping once I emerge out of hell, I will have a little more time to devote to it.
For those who aren't familiar, geocaching is like a worldwide treasure hunt. *People hide what's called a cache which can be really tiny (micro) or a larger container often holding "treasure" (anything you want to put in...small toys, gift cards, coins, pens, etc.). *You post the coordinates on a website and then people use their GPSr's to hunt for the cache. *Once found, you leave the cache in place as you found it, sign a log book and then post online that you've found it. *You can take an item out of a cache and/or leave an item. *There are Travel Bugs and Geocoins you can place that can be moved from cache to cache and are trackable so you know where its been. *Its a great way to get some exercise and see areas you've never seen. *I've found a couple of parks I didn't know about and some historical areas. *I'm looking forward to more caching in the future.
Anyone else here go geocaching?
