My father-in-law, my wife, brother/girlfriend/girlfriend's-Dad and myself geocache... It's pretty cool when we're out walking the dogs in one of the multitude of cool spots around here and you get to check out some neat caches along the walk. Great hobby to do with others...

I have done a bit but I work with a geo cache fanatic that has his own coins. Have you heard the geo name GO Jaybee?

I used to be into it, but haven't done it in a couple years. I got bummed because I had several caches that I had hid muggled. It was disappointing.

Also I got into it for the hiking style caches. I never liked the parking lot caches. In my area that style became quite popular. Searching for a tic tac container in the middle of a shopping center parking lot isn't what I had wanted out of the hobby.

that being said, it can be a lot of fun. I have many fond memories of hiking for hours to find a few caches in the middle of nowhere. good times.

The hiking style caches are what I was interested in too. But after doing the few close to my home I ended up having to put in serious drive time. That got expensive really fast. I never saw the appeal of urban caches either.

When the weather cools down here, my daughter & I enjoy geocaching.

I did it for a while. Have always wanted to set up my own cache. It'd be a puzzle cache with pretty good prizes for the first fews. Last year sort of petered out on it. COst of gas, etc. Have been thinking about getting back into it, but the wife didn't seem all that crazy about it. The kids and I love it though.

I found a geocache by accident once. a friend and I were driving from San Jose to Yosemite and near one of the roads there was a peak we stopped at and climbed up just for fun. low and behold we found a container with a few things in it and a log book. neither of us knew what geocaching was but we signed our names in the log book and left a few things behind that we had in our pockets.
