I have been geocaching off and on for several years and it is a BLAST! I got to see parts of my own town I never knew existed. Pls it's great fun if you have time on trips--search your route and do caches along the way.

I have the eTrex, too, and enjoy it.

I haven't done it in a while because once people filled in the obvious spots, they all seemed to go to micro caches, which aren't as much fun for me. My GPS is too old, seems like all the caches now use waypoints and projections which mine can't do, and micro caches are almost impossible when your GPS only has a 15-20ft accuracy! Talk about a needle in a haystack (or a pill bottle in a blackberry bush)!

It's great fun as long as you have a good GPS and choose your hunts carefully!

There's another game with written clues and stamps, I can't remember the name but maybe someone else will. I hear that one is great fun too, and no equipment needed.

I feel your pain Stephanie. I have the best GPS (Garmin 60 CSx) that most of the cachers use and even with that there are some that are just impossible to find. The most diabolical hide I ever found was secreted in a fake tree stump that you had to take apart to get the micro out. It was buried deep in a Florida swamp and took me the better part of two hours to find. I will plead to being just plain lucky on this one though. I am one of five people that have found it in 2 years. It is addictive though and I get a lot of fun out of doing it.

Letterboxing?

I think the other one is Letter Boxing. I think alot of Rallies are offering GEO-Caching now too... an alternative event at a rally.

Yeah, I want to look into the letterboxing. I was talking to someone in our theater group the other day who is into that and says it's great fun. No equipment needed, which is nice.

Hi,
I have been geocaching longer than airstreaming. My geocache name is the same as the airstream nickname.

I haven't looked in a while, so I went to the website. There's tons of new caches to hunt for - I haven't found one since Feb '05!!! Might be time to go hunt a few down.

I also had several travel bugs out and about. One made it to friends in IL, and they kept it. The others have all dissapeared. The last one, Scully, was released Nov 2002, crossed the country a couple times, even making it back home at one point, and then I sent her off again. She finally dissapeared in July of this year. Might turn up again yet, you never know. I think the travel bugs was my favorite part of the caching

That's a great idea. I would think one of our many vendors, like VTS, would be interested in creating some. I'd buy some just to puzzle my DW.

DW: What's that, another one of your Airstream thingies?

Me: Yeah. It only cost 3 dollars.

DW: What's it do?

Me: It's a secret.

DW: You're crazy.

I sold a 2008 28' International to a guy the Geocaching...as a matter of fact, he took me out in our parking lot behind some of our trailers and showed me where a container was right here on my lot...guess what...I got a GPS! I haven't started yet, I am waiting on some warmer weather!

Pretty cool!
