    Geoquest

    My trusted EP confidant sent me an email early last fall that said: "Hey, have you ever been geocaching?"  I had no idea what geocaching was and wrote back for an explaination.  He said it was treasure hunting with GPS.  I was immediately intrigued.  Who...

    It's Fun!

    We keep a bag packed in the car in case I get off work early or we find some other unexpected free time.  That way we can go grab a few easy ones whenever time allows.  We save the hard ones for the weekends.

    I Am Addicted

    Well, I needed something to replace my smoking habit, and my son had introduced me to Geocaching about a year earlier and I remembered it so for the past two months I have been geocaching quite a bit and have almost 150 finds.

    Not So Close!!

    I get to go geocaching again.  Had ankle in a cast for the longest time and could not get out and explore.  In the last 2 days I have found 7 and 1  couldn`t find.  The only thing I do not like is when someone hides a cache so close to private property!  This morning out in...

    I wish I had someone to do this with!

    I've only done two in the past with someone who had some gps equipment but I'm afraid my boyfriend will just think it's dumb...maybe I'll introduce it to him soon for us to try!

    The Tell Tale Cache

    I am into geocaching in Central Texas and we have a fellow cacher that is an Edgar Allen Poe fan.  I've only found one of his/her caches called the "Tell Tale Cache".  This particular cache was under a wooden dance floor in the main park in town in a jar that was covered in a...

    My husband and I have done a bit of Geocaching

    here or there. Today I had my 6 year old nephew over and we decided to try it. He's very good at it- looking everywhere. He found a very tricky one all by himself! We had a blast!

    Thrill

    I got into geocaching because of a friend, she brought me on an easy cache and I was hooked...whenever I get a chance I go out and knock one down, I'm not so great at puzzles yet, but I'll get there. Caching is awesome, if you've never done it--you've got to.

    Haven't Been In a While...

    With the long, snowy winter that we've had, paired with all of our activities, its been hard to find time to get out and do any geocaching.  But the kids have an early release day at school, so we've decided to grab a few quick caches this afternoon.  Looking forward to...

    Always Ready.

    My caching bag is packed, my bike is ready to go, but she says I'm to tired. Can geocaching lead to a separation. It's so much more fun than watching TV, even in the winter cold..

    I discovered Geocaching about a year ago - it's

    great fun, and a good way of exploring different areas. I always bring a camera with me as a 'cover' in case people are wondering what I'm doing, and it seems to work. In one case, my car was parked beside a park where I was hunting down a geocache. Came back to see a...

    Suspense.

    There we were.  Myself, and my two boys creeping through the woods.  Not knowing what to expect, our eyses were alert.  Searching the underbrush, and the trees above for something out of place.  We knew we were close.  The marker on the screen in my hand showed us that we...

    What To Look For.

    Some caches are right out in the open after you manage your way to climb through the trees and wood, you might find an ammo box like this. Containing a few trinkets and a log book to log your find. Some caches are not right out in the open like that though. Some are placed near...

    I Love Caching!!!

    I absolutely love geocaching... it is the most calming and exciting activity. Pick up some coords. and you're on your way. Over the river and threw the woods to the cache that I will find :) There is nothing more touching than watching a child find his first cache. They seem to...

    How Geocaching Has Changed My Life

    Geocaching. Never heard of it? It's a high tech scavenger hunt using a GPS to find coordinates posted on "geocaching.com".  What do you find?  Well, different things...ammo boxes, film canisters, cleverly cammoflauged containers (or caches) that contain...

    Well I can't say that I like it yet,

    but I am sure I will. I actually joined this group to read up on other peoples experiences on it. It's something I have heard about, and I've been reading about it. I need a new hobby, and this does sound like fun. I just downloaded the app on my phone and I plan to try it out...
