Yes, I am. I log all my caches.  I don't go on there much.....heck.....I haven't been geocaching in a while.  I gotta get out.  It is cool to keep track of them.

I'm considering ordering a bunch of wooden geocoins to put in the caches.  I'm going to have them imprint the coins with my super squirrel avatar.  Wooden coins are cheap.  The metal ones are like $5-$7 a piece.

Geocaching is an awesome way to learn all about GPSrs and the caching can put you onto some great hiking trails. :thumbup: I try to stick with the remote caches most of the time I like them a lot better than the ones in guardrails and shopping centers( high traffic areas).  :curse:

I agree KW.  I'm starting to see all this now as I talk to more people who do this.  I'm going to be a little more selective about which cahces I hunt.  I already don't like microcaches.  They can be almost anywheres.  They are only big enough for a small log, a pencil and/or a few geocoins.  Now that my gps is set properly I am going to print up a bunch of local cahces and see what I can find.  I've already thought about starting my own cahce and registering it.  I know a great spot that's close enough I can check it pretty frequently.

Well I went out hunting geocaches today and found the contents of 1 strewn all over the place and the ammo can it was supposed to be in missing.  I'm trying to contact the cache owner and return everything.  There was quite a bit of stuff.  buttons, hot wheels, golf ball, little plastic dog, kids halloween makeup, some religious literature, eyeglass bandsseveral plastic army men, kids scissors, toy snake, toy lizard, pencil sharpener, a plastic angel with a tracking tag on it.

Geocaching is a blast!!!
I just wish that we could get time to do more of it. ( Team C.E.R.T. on GC.com )
 There are lots of different cache containers around...& they're not always easy to spot.
Check some of these out:











Good luck & have fun with your cache hunting !

I didn't find any others.  I was close to a few but I was being watched by muggles (humans).  So I didn't get a chance to actually find them even though I was close.I dolt like microcaches The smalles ones) because they are usually only big enough for a small pencils and a tiny log book and maybe a few items.  Super hard to spot.  I know I was standing right on top of 2 but couldn't see them.  I still had lots of fun.  Tad cold though.  Plus there were too many people around.

I've only been doing this a couple weeks Cliff.  Really only my second time out.  How often do you find cahces that muggles have destroyed?

Well Dave,sorry to say that there are quite a few caches that have been trashed or stolen around here :(.
Seems to be getting worse as the popularity of the game grows.
Seems like a lot of the times we go cache hunting there are a bunch of folks watching & waiting for us to leave so they can see what we were so interested in.
I'm not really fond of micro caches either. I might go after one if it's in an area that has regular caches too,but don't usually go after only a micro.

I'm beginning to learn these things Cliff.  Traditional caches are great to find.  I'm considering putting in a chace myself.  I a spot that's easy to walk to but just far enough off the beaten track that muggles won't find it.  I'm also looking into getting myslef a travel bug and see how that goes.

~ I read about the "muggled term" LOL!  It was borrowed from Harry Potter. I bet it sucks to find one that's been muggled by some darn muggles.  :thumbdown:

I was being watched by homeless muggles on Saturday.  This geocaching this is pretty fun.  I went out again today and found 1 more cahce.  It took me a while to find it but mission accomplished.  I put a Travel Bug in the container I found today. The bug was in the cache where the box got stolen.
