Welcome and nice to meet you! ^_^ I've only been doing it for almost 2 years. Unfortunately, we can't do much winter caching here in the northeast.  [ send green star]
 
Geocaching Is So Much Fun May 28, 2004 12:14 PM

I have never found a hobby and sport that includes so many people and interests. From families with children to singles traveling for their company, from tech savvy people to outdoor nature lovers, from history lovers to biology and geology students... geocaching has so much to offer all of them. Hoping to get to share this awesome activity with others and get a chance to say hi to other geocachers in the area. =)  [ send green star]
 
It's a great sport June 02, 2004 11:46 PM

I too love the diverse group of cachers. It's great to live in such a beautiful state as Colorado, because the possibilities for caches seem endless. Are there any cachers from Colorado out there? Or anybody traveling through?  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

My wife and I have cached in New York and Massachusettes so far. We are good friends with the organizers of Michigan Geocaching Org (MiGO)  [ send green star]
 
Hi From the Pacific Northwest June 05, 2004 8:21 AM

As a hiker I just got my first gps recently and decided that I'd try a little geocaching as practice in learning to use it. After looking it up online I was amazed to find out how many folks there are in this "sport" and how many local caches there were! We even looked up some caches in MO on a recent vacation trip. It got us to several places we would never have known about or seen. Oh yeah, we live in north central WA state, in the beautiful and serene Methow Valley at the east entrance to the North Cascades Highway, very much like where we previously lived, Colorado.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Hello all! August 02, 2004 11:39 PM

Hi, I just got my GPS unit since I will be using it in some of my classes at the University. So I looked up and I have so far found one, try another one today but I could not find it, never the less it was fun.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

welcome Carlos! How long ago was the cache last found? If there are other 'Not Found' posts then you might want to request the cache hider to check on it. I've had a few I couldn't find because they were mirco caches that had been taken. Otherwise, the hider may have some hints.  [ send green star]
 
Hello... August 13, 2005 2:13 PM

Hi All - I just started Geocaching earlier this week and absolutely love it (6 caches down, how many more to go????). I had no idea how much bushwacking and mosquitoes would be involved...

I'm a relative newbie to this...how long have all of you been caching? Who has found the most (surely you can beat 6!)? Do you tend to go hunting in groups, or alone, or with a non-geocacher? My husband tends to get dragged along...at least he gets to enjoy the hike!

Also, I'm thinking of hiding a cache at some point. Any tips on what makes a good hiding place? Is a multi-cache worth setting up?

Thanks - happy caching!

Welcome to the sport Heather! You bring up some great questions for discussion. I will start 2 polls...one for how long we've been geocaching and one for number of finds

You can start a thread on preferences on hunting (alone, group, at night, etc)

I will also answer you questions on hiding caches in another thread.

Again welcome ^_^

Ron,
Hello, I am new to the group and noticed you were looking for people in New England into Geocaching.  Believe it or not, I know where Marlborough MA is! Anyway, I have been an avid hiker and birdwatcher for awhile, and then I got into letterboxing, but I have found that to have gotten rather dull and too easy for the most part.  I have been wanting to get into geocaching, but my fiance has been giving me crap about spending 100 bucks on a GPS unit, so I haven't started yet, but I plan to buy one soon and start.  I have read quite a bit about it already, but I was wondering if you had any general advice, especially if you know of any good, relatively inexpensive GPS units. 

Thanks!
Kevin

Garmin eTrex is the default starter handheld GPS (the yellow one with just the arrow for $100). The Legend is a better upgrade unit with maps.

I currently use a Cobra since it was on sale on Woot. It came with all software, cables, and car mount.

When looking at a GPSr, especially take note of the interface for downloading coordinates and it's map capabilities.  Also look at the size of the screen vs. how big of a unit you want.
