The "Anything Else" board looked so sad and forlorn without a single thread... Smiley
...so I thought I would post about another hobby of mine!

www.geocaching.com

Anyone else geocache? I have found 240 so far. Great outdoors family friendly activity.

G'day Bixby

Noticed you were a Geocacher in the introduction thread. I have been Geocaching since 2005. Maddie and I are pushing 1130 finds here in Australia. Just had holidays in the Blue Mountain Area ended up with 75 finds for the 2 weeks.  Love Geocaching gets us outdoors a fair bit and there are some great people to meet. We combine geocaching with other outdoor activities like 4x4ing, Metal/Gold detecting and of course general trips around the country side.  Where do you hail from?

I gave it a try once, but I just don't have the patience for it. The only reason I even got one find was because the cache owner gave me a ton of hints (it was in front of his house). I made a pitiful attempt at another nearby cache but couldn't find anything. Felt like a complete dork and went home.

Edmil:
Cool beans. You area  true veteran. I live in Saskatchewan, Canada. I have found caches in Canada, USA, and Scotland. Some very interesting places and some very interesting finds. I imagine you have seen some very clever hides and travel bugs. cache on my friend, cache on...

Scott:
Sorry to hear about your experience. Sounds like the early caches you went after happen to be frustrating. That is not indicative of the hobby. I have had a few that were very hard to find, but tons more that were quite rewarding.

The first geocache I found was in August of 2003.

I quit caching once I returned to college--too many other activities taking too much time to geocache.  I do miss it, though.

Have thought many times about doing it.  I travel a fair bit and love the outdoors.  Perhaps I will try it this summer.

Do give it a try. It can become very addictive, but it can take you to some amazing places.  Maddie and I have only cached in Australia but if we get the opportunity to travel OS you can be sure it will be part of our sight seeing.

Very Cool Carbon.


I should get a couple of Meeple Travel bugs going. That would be fun to track. Smiley
