    yeah my wife and I do cacheing! It's a blast! We did a bunch back in March during our honeymoon. But nothing too interesting... Yet ;-) I've got a Garmin Rino 120, I was thinking of upgrading here soon. What are you running?

    i have a garmin etrex venture HC, i paid around $180 for it, its all right, gets the job done but under a heavy canopy of trees it tends to get a little off track but good overall for a basic unit

    I use to. My wife and I, anyway. Been probably 4 years since I've done it though.
    We did find it was a good way to get out and explore new places. I stopped a while ago, my dad placed a bunch and people kept stealing them. He had to start using ammo boxes and chaining them down. Some people like to ruin the fun for everyone else.
    It might be fun to place some "off-road" specific geocaches some place.

    My brother loves it. I've been on a few hunts with them. He's got the GPS to help locate and all. It's pretty cool.

    Me and a buddy of mine got into it about 3 months ago.
    We were camping out in the parking lot at REI for a wicked sale the next morning, and at about 1:30a.m. another guy pulls up to do the same thing. In conversation he asked us if we were into geocaching, and we responded with blank stares and something that sounded like "whut?"

    He proceeded to tell us what it is, then asked "Want to find one, its 500ft. from here?" And we were introduced to our first Nano. We were immediately hooked.
    Shortly thereafter I purchased a Garmin Colorado and we went every chance we got. Took a couple weekend trips for the sole purpose of caching and had a tremendous time.

    We went yesterday to our first event cache and got the chance to meet a ton of great people and see some very interesting trackables. It was a ton of fun. This is definitely one of the coolest hobbies I have seen.

    And I know just near here there are quite a few 4x4 specific caches located in Uwharrie on the ohv trails.

    Thankfully this thread is only 5 months old and not 5 years old so I don't feel so bad raising a dead horse. Anybody else Geocache? Right now I have a Cache-Aid and a Travel Bug that I am taking from the midwest to Colorado with me. Heading west on July 3 and hopefully I can find some more stuff to travel with me.

    Considering getting into it. Especially in NePA, there seem to be some great locations.

    ...I signed up on this site a couple months back...
    http://www.geocaching.com/

    ...Then I ran across another site of local 4wheelers to geocache in my area...They seem to be all jeepers and I am going to introduce them to the world of the Explorer's...:D

    ...The funny thing is, one of their moderators is taking a trip to Ouray Colorado and has planned a very similar run as the one we did last October...He is also placing caches along the way...;)

    I have done a few with my scout troop. They're alot of fun and I encourage anyone with a gps to try it. Our troop itself forund a few on our campouts, but a couple have rediculously difficult clues and are not very specific. I plan to do more with my family and now both my dad and I have gps' that are capable of caching.
