I just learned about this today. I might try to find someone's cache and put something in it; maybe a stripper clip, a few spent casings, or some nudie pictures.

tried it once, not entertaining.

No different than trying to find an unknown store or restuarant in a city.

If you have kids, they love it.

its not varry fun, and alot of the time its eitehr been moved, or compleatly emptied. its still kinda fun though if you are doing it with some buddys. we've done it with search and rescue just to see if we could find it.

I do it in the spring, fall and winter, when all the bugs are dead. It;'s fun, and gives my dad and me something to do. Give it a try.

We use it for our Land Nav exercises with the DEP unit. Great fun, the SGTs plot the points on the maps, hand us the maps, compasses, and protractors, and tell us to go forth and find the chache and put a Army keychain in it.

I have been geocaching off and on for about 2 years now. I even have my own travel bug** which has made its way to Europe... and is still moving quite frequently.

**like a dog tag, has a tracking code on it.. people pick it up in caches and take it to another chache and record it on the website

Yep, I geocache. It's something fun to do with your kids & see some interesting terrain. Oh--forget the nude pictures.

Done it a couple times. It's a modern day treasure/scavenger hunt. Done it a couple of times. Good fun!

My fiance just tried it the other day, said it was a lot of fun. Wasnt able to find the box she was looking for, but is going to try again. I figure its a good way to talk her into letting me buy a GPS

I love caching. I don't get out as much as I would like though. I've found pretty much every cache within 20 miles of my house.

i searched my area code and found out i was literally a few feet away from one today. waay out in the woods where i hunt and shoot there's a spot where a firetower used to be. too bad i didn't find out about this earlier.

Geocaching is a blast. It's something you can do with buddies and do some extreme hiking or take the kids and do some easy park type caches. I have several friends who cache quite often. My two main caching buddies want us to take ARs and do some serious desert/mountain caching, just because. Honestly, it's fun, it allows you to enjoy the outdoors, and it's a great excuse to get out of the house--and not spend money on ammo

I have done a few, there are far worse ways to kill time.
