Have been doing it for a couple of years now. The daughters and I really enjoy it.
Geocaching "The art of using a billion dollar satellite system to find Tupperware hidden in a forest".
You are what you is, and that's all it is.
Another Cacher, checking in. The eTrex 20 is my weapon of choice.
I'm terrible at finding urban caches, though. Give me something the size of an ammo box out in the forest over a bison tube hanging from a bush in a Wal-Mart parking lot any day of the week.
My wife and I did it a lot last year. My gps broke in early spring and now I just use the iPhone app. I hate having to use my phone and haven't been motivated to do it as much as I would otherwise. I need to buckle down and get another gps. Its cool to see so many of us here do it!
I greatly enjoy Geocaching. Only use my iPhone. It's amazing the things I've found in my own home town that I never knew existed, including an entire abandoned railway line complete with abandoned Civil War era coal mine.
Yup Been one for about 3ish years. I have a Garmin Etrex. My wife son and I go out every once in a while. My wife is afraid of snakes so she usually lets me and the kid do the bushwacking!
Hahaha, I have a terrible habit that makes geocaching alot harder than it has to be. I get something like 50m away from a cache and start bushwacking and often end up right back on the same trail which I didn't realise lead right to the cache anyway.
Who is John Galt?
My geocaching trips usually end up happening at 2am when me and my friends get home after a night out. Only found one cache so far though! We usually just see what's around and go from there
Been a cacher for about 6 years. I started with an Etrex Legend and never had a problem. My in-laws got me a new Etrex 10 with a caching bundle for Christmas, but I haven't had a chance to take it out yet, too much snow on the ground.

The only downside (that I have found) is that it can only show the closest 18 caches, however I have found that on occasions it fails to show the closest caches and thinks that the closest is a couple of Kms (or Miles) away.
Generally I don't have an issue with it, as my caching trips are always planned and I load the GPS with the needed caches beforehand and then remove when returning home.
Been at it since 2008 with my eTrex Legend HCx. Lots of DNFs over the years, though I did successfully find two today.
Howdy! Elde checking in from the Great Pacific Northwet. After seven years of caching, I've only got 250 caches, but I concentrate on quality over quantity.
I use Garmin GPS Map 60 CSx, and we've gone paperless with the Geocaching iPhone app. (It really has changed our game for the better.)
