    Seems like a growing hobby with the GPS rage

    Growing? Dude, it's been out for a long time! :D

    I take my kids out now and then, but can't find some of them. I think some are too easy to find, and some kids find them not knowing what they are...and take the whole loot!

    Are you familiar with the Geo Cache web site? Here's the link:

    http://www.geocaching.com/map/default.aspx

    Just download any one of those to your GPS, and you're good to go!

    Yup wife and kids love the geocaching action. I do too, especially when combined with fishing.

    I've used GPS since the get go on our fishing boats didn't realize people used it for fun to find Caches. When the Government first came out it was within 250 feet, then 25 feet, now I don't know. I guess they can turn it off any time they want. It went off on 9 eleven if you check your history.

    Yup, love to go out with my daughter. Most of the time I just use my phone with the geocaching app. Ed has hidden one under the surface at our favorite selective gear lake and we check on it every time we are there.

    Not my main focus at this time but I have searched for my fair share. I still go out every once in a while, mostly now with a grandson who loves it. I was also big time into Orienteering, but that now seems like it was in a past life...
