    My family and the family of a close friend have teamed up to form "9fishes" on geocaching.com We started Geocaching back in June or July but have known about it for a while. We are all hooked...especially the adults! Since we just got our new-2-us pup we are excited that we will be taking it for an adults only maiden voyage to Potter Co, PA for a 4 county 24 cache mini marathon. We are trying to complete the Allegheny Geotrail before the end of the year and these are our last four counties (www.AlleghenyGeoTrail.com). Next stop, New York Finger Lakes for the Sojourner Geocoin! Like I said, we're addicted!

    I guess this is a modern version following a trail by the clues etc, sounds really interesting & enjoyable & a great tool for learning different things. I may even look up GPS units in the UK
