Found this today with MiWestiesRock.  We left a TB and took a geocoin.  We also
traded one of your trackable wooden nickels for a Happy Meal toy.

This was in our local newspaper last week, so thought I'd put it in here





I was hoping you could read this but , looks like you may need a magnifying glass.  8|

Ok folks..... Here is what it said..... I didnt reread it so there are probably mispelled words here and there.....

Searchers use GPS to locate caches
By Susan Kaufman
The Register Mail

It wasn't the sunny and warm spring day that brought out a small group of friends to walk at Lake Storey on Saturday morning. It was the thrill of the hunt.
Brian Price and Kevin Whitemore, both of Galesburh were joined by Tony and Linda Gimbleof Moline in a day of geocaching, a high tech treasure hunting game.
A game may not be the correct term for this group of dedicated geocachers, however; "Its a hobby," said Price before quickly adding,"No. Its safe to say it is an addiction."
The other geocachers agreed. They are hooked on the hunt.
In geocaching, residents from all over the world set up caches_boxes filled with trinkets, information and a log book_and post the geographical coordinates online, usally at www.geocaching.com. Then, cache hunters useportable global positioning systems to locate the "treasures".
Over 769,000 caches are hidden all over the world and 123 are located within a 15-mile radius of Galesburg.Price said geocachers could spend an entire day looking for treasures at Lake Storey alone.
Most geocachers also hide their own boxes and Saturdays mission for the group of friends was not only treasure hunting but maintenance on their caches. Old log books with filled pages were replaced with new and the boxes were checked for moisture of theft.
"Some come up missing occasionally ... that is part of it," Price said.
Most boxes are inexpensive and don't contain anything of balue other than to the geocachers, although Price said he is amazed at some of the ingenious containers people use.
Once the caches are located, cache hunters record the information online. They also are encouraged to take an item from a certain cache and leave an item for the next person who finds the cache. " The unwritten rule is that if you take an item, you trade up" Price said.
Whitemore said the hobby has the best of two worlds. "Its definetely for people with a taste of technology and the thrill of the hunt."Crawling in the woods, hiking through rough terrain, and climbing trees are par for the course.
Linda Gimble said she has only come across a couple hazards in her seven years geocaching. "I would say the ticks and poison ivy can be problems."
" It is a great family activity." Price said. "I have met so many people doing it and so many of them are extraordinary." The four friends Saturday met through geocaching and get together regularly for meals, sharing info and hunting.
Geocachers also have a strong sense of community and support for the environment. "We say cache in and trash out." So on your way back from finding a treasure, you carry a bag and pick up any trash you see."Price said.What is really thrilling is that you walk or drive by dozens of them everyday and you may not even know they are there.
Price said" it is that kind of thrill that keeps us going."

There are approx 778,271 active caches around the world. Go here>

Enter your zip code and it will tell you exactly where they are. You will need a GPS to pin point them. I use a Garman E Trex.
