Did it once, lots of fun. Definitely a cool hobby / adventure.

Glad to hear you're really getting into it Scott.

Well, sort of getting into it. It's something different (and cheap) to do. Found a few more caches with travel bugs this afternoon. Really cool checking out the logs in these things. Found several that I walked right over all summer at the local pond!

I started a while back and it is a lot of fun. I've lived here for 51 years and it takes me to places I didn't know or think about. When out of state for Thansgiving it gave me somethig to do when the girls went shopping the day after. Cache on and have fun.

Just purchased a handheld Garmin with a built in compass. Man, this tracking is so much more fun now! The places I've been to lately.....wow!

It's not that difficult really. Get a handheld gps unit, download coordinates automatically and walk to that spot! You will be amazed at where you end up. Once you find the "cache" simply log your visit at that site and record it on the website. Its interesting to see who else before you found that same spot.
