  1. I received a Garmin Legend for xmas and found my first caches yesterday with my 2 daughters. We had a great time despite the rain and snow. Many of my questions have been answered after spending hours reading thru the FAQ's and the forum, but I still have quite a few. One that immediately popped up yesterday while out caching was the readout. I'm not sure I have the Latitude-Longitude totally figured out. I have 3 numbers to the right of the decimal point. What is the distance that I travel each time a number changes? I understand the latitude would stay the same no matter where you are, but the longitude gets less as you get closer to the north pole? When I did watch the number change it seemed like it was close to 12 inches. Am I anywhere close? This is all new to me, so I hope this isn't too dumb of a question. While using the Go To feature and navigating to our finds yesterday it was easier to use the cordinates and think Ok, I have to go over 20 points to the West then 300 points to the North to get me close to the cache. Thanks for all the info. I've been spending hours and hours reading about my new hobby.
