Any Geocachers out there?

We logged 3 this afternoon!

Between being a FT doctoral student and my various odd jobs, I'm a pretty busy gal. Luckily, Mr. Bean is supportive of my choices.

Nevertheless, I like to keep Sundays open and spend time with him. He's recently really gotten into Geocaching. Aside from the initial outlay of a handheld GPS unit (~$100-150), it's a pretty frugal hobby. Itís also a great way to get outdoors and explore new trails. We don't have kids (yet), but we notice in the log books that a lot of families with kids are into it.

The GPS unit is handy for hiking, too (just make sure you don't place it on the top of your car while loading up and then drive off-- this is how we lost our first GPS unit-- doh!)

    I've heard about it and am very interested, but hesitant to put out the $$$ for a GPS until I know I'll be able to do it on a regular basis (maybe when the kids are a little older). Sounds like a lot of fun!

    Ditto Jodi not sure we would do it enough for the start up cost....

    A real life treasure hunt! I looked at the official website (geocache.com) which has little red dots all over the world where registered caches are, of course there is one in the movie parking lot 3 miles from my house!

    And gave my geography professor husband a GPS 2 Christmases ago and he RETURNED it! Because he wants to take enough time to 'do it right' (read that 'get a bigger better more complicated expensive unit, upgrade the computer, car, and everything else to have maximum fun).

    *sigh* so we'll be joining in after a year or so more. Can't wait to take the boy scouts and girl scout troops!
