Has anyone done this before? What did you find? Or what did you leave?

Once a geocache is found, you sign a log and take a prize (while leaving another to replace it). The fun part is in the hunt though. The geocache boxes are usually filled with junk. I like to leave matchbox cars :nerd:

Here's a good website if anyone wants to see how many geocaches are near them. I'm always amazed at how many I find near me. I never realized it was so popular.

Wow there's a ton in Maine.

It's fun. I've left coupons for tims (cos you need timks sometimes) and maps and cds.

I caNNOT BElieve I'm admitting I do this on here. drink,ing:tsk:

Hmmm. Now I'm tempted, and have signed up for it! Need a GPS though.

DaveC 09-08-2007 02:47 PM

According to that site, I have one in my backyard...? :hmm:

major_panic 09-09-2007 03:27 AM

Clearly your backyard is not secure enough. I suggest hiring men with shotguns, and dogs.

:wink: Or just go replace something in the cache, and note it in the log.

DaveC 09-09-2007 04:25 PM

I don't have a GPS, so it might be tough to actually locate it in the woods. It'd be cool though.

snowbunny00774 09-09-2007 04:27 PM

weird....about 5 mins ago I just passed a cache spot here and wondered if you had found yours! forget the gps, just wander aimlessly around the woods.

DaveC 09-09-2007 07:44 PM

Well according to the site it's on the edge of the highway. I don't know how well digging up the entire ditch along the 101 freeway is going to go over.

I've never heard of this before, but it sounds really cool. I love the idea of finding other people's little treasures and leaving my own to be found. I don't have a gps though... Is there anything like this out there for the technologically deprived?

AngelofHarlem01 09-10-2007 01:50 PM

Actually there is! It's called Drop Spotting Unfortunately I don't know how well it's caughten on but if you live in a more populated area you might have some luck. You might also be able to do geocaching without GPS if you have Google Earth. It'd be a bit more difficult, but depending on how easy or hard the cache is hidden you still could probably find one.
