For some time I had been thinking about this activity. I finally got around to joining the Geocaching community in January. It is great fun. Already I have found four local caches. I hope to “hide” one myself within the next few weeks. I enjoyed the caches where I had to hike in to the location, a bit of effort was needed!!! Reading the log entries and coming home to register my finds was exciting. Some of us are easily pleased.

One thing I have learned is that my Garmin Etrex HC Summit is a really good GPS. On each occasion it brought me to within a metre of the Cache.

Is it a sport or ? I go for the sport definition.
