    Don't casch ourselves, but have a good friend who has gotten into it for the last few months. Him and his wife usually go out every weekend in SW PA. They have even got permission to place some in the State Parks in PA. We may get in to it soon. Have fun.

    LOL [:D] I have changed the way I explain it to people over the years to "High tech hide and seek" and then explain how it works.

    I am Wizfisher on Geocaching.com (maybe on groundspeak too?) but I don't even know if I have posted more than a couple times on the forums over the years.

    We were camping at a Camp Jellystone this past weekend with my daughters Girl Scout troop and there were two caches in the park. The area had some major flooding a few months ago and I made sure to tell those that were with us that the caches would most likely not be there. They weren't [:(], but we did have fun on the hike.
    They have heard of geocaching before and now probably think we were messing with them. I will be working with the Girl Scout troop (actually my wife probably will) and setting up a day of geocaching in a local park this coming fall when it is coller and less bugs.
    I think the girls will enjoy it.

    kbnjohnson on geocaching.com, we try and grab a few wherever we go. Last week in San Diego there was one hidden just outside the campground entrance, and I could not find it. How frustrating! [LOL] We have also grabbed a lot of virtuals and earthcaches while camping. I also search along the interstates and other routes for "trucker friendly" and "trailer friendly" caches that are easy to get too without having to maneuver too much with the PUP. [PU] I did receive applause at one stop in the NM mountains when I had to back the PUP up and out around a corner to escape. [:D] Oh the things we do for swag and the occasional travel bug...

    Hello,

    Mamaduck71 on geocaching.com
    Been caching since 2006. One reason why we purchased a PUP is to increase our caching weekends. Well we really have not done that yet, but we are using the camper.

    We are going to Midwest Geobash 2009 with the camper. Anyone else going?

    I was a very active geocacher a few years back. I started back in 2002. I used to travel a great deal for work, so I would cache in my off time on the road. When I quite traveling so much, my cache hunting fell way off as well.

    gwolfe on geocaching.com. We love to geocache and make it a point to pick up some caches wherever we go. Funny when I look at the map of my area all of my happy faces are out in the country only a handfull inside the city limits.

    Slicvickie on geocaching.com also. Been doing it for a year now, but not very active on the forums.
    One of my favorite caches with my girl scout troop was one that had been hidden by the boy scouts. Girls said "if boys can hide it, girls can find it"
    I said "truer words have never been spoken, remember that line for when you get a boy (or man) in your life"

    I just got started this summer. My cousin took us caching at Lums Pond SP over Memorial Wknd. We had a good time, but his GPS was acting up. He asked my DH, an engineer, to take the GPS home & see if he could figure out what was wrong. Well, I picked it up one day, cleaned out some miniscule pieces of corrosion on the terminals, put new batteries in & Voila! it seemed to be working. I told the cousin that I would go out & find a cache or two near home to make sure it was working before I mailed it back to him. At which point, he told me not to hurry because he had already gone out & bought a new one. I was very happy to hear this because I became hooked & have been caching all summer!

    I've been geocaching for a few years now. I try to line up four to five caches every camping trip. Of course I don't get to every one but love getting out. I'm more interested in caches along historic lines or around water, i.e. old homesteads, logging camps, scenic areas, etc.
    DW and I don't have kids but we've taken nieces and nephews out and had a blast.
    See you on the trails...

    If you like water caches, there is a series of caches up on the Schroon River (Lake George, NY) that can only be reached by canoe/kayak. We camped along the river last month - didn't get to do the caches (not enough kayaks for all!), but thought they'd be very cool to find!

    Sweet! Youll have a blast, Im not as active in it now as I was when I first started. We used to plan our routes around home to run errands and grab caches at the same time! But those days have fallen short as the errands lists grew longer and longer! I do cache ALOT when Im away from home, on roadtrips or camping.

    You should look around your area, alot of the local clubs are planning 9 9 09 event caches! Flash Mobs are also alot of fun!

    Aunt Lulu , me, our DHs and DSs are "Geopups GA". We don't get to go as often as we would like, but we always try to find a few on our camping outings. Doggone work and school interferes with our social life [;)]
