  1. What a response! Thanks to everyone for their comments. I've had internet problems the last few days and was surprised to see the increase in posts. Thanks again, and to let everyone know i appreciate the other suggestions for activities.


    Also, I just ordered a eTrex Camo from eBay, it was really cheap, and I still have my Nokia N95, which I can add maps to. I figure I'll look for something better when I get home (2 weeks Left), that way I can give my son the Camo for him to use / play with.


    I'll look at bring back some swag / trinkets from Iraq, I'll just have to place them far away from where I live.... too many military who already have swag like I would bring home. Thanks again, I'll try to get out this weekend and go caching in Iraq :unsure:

  2. First of all thanks for the words of encouragement, it' nice to know people still care.


    I'm about a month out form getting home and have started buy purchasing some swag, logbook and other stuff online. But, I'm having trouble picking a good GPS, have been looking at the eTrex Vista HCx, but it's comes with a steep price. I'd hate to spend that much and have the kids absolutely hate the game. Ant suggestions on a good GPS for someone just starting out?



  3. First of all, and most importantly, WELCOME HOME AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.


    This is definitely a great activity for father and son. (My grandkids love caching with me) You will get to spend great time together, working together to spot the cache, talking, or just sitting on a hill and looking at the landscape. Most caches are urban, but you can find some great challenges in a local park or out of town in the woods Add to the fun, use bikes in town for the exercise as well, or roller blades even. How you fellows cache is strictly up to you. Your son will want to swap treasures in the larger caches, so stock up on a couple trinkets for him to leave behind. Also, let him launch a travel bug and watch it move around the country or world. Be sure when you write the page for the TB to encourage pics.


    Enjoy, and once again, thank you.


    What kind of trinkets are acceptable? I read no knives, matches etc... nothing dangerous. But what is good? Small toys, I'm kind of a loss. Also, the TB, once I setup the page we just add it to a cache?



  4. I'm getting ready to go home, from Iraq, and am looking for something me an my son can do. A just the boys activity. He is 6 and has 5 sisters... he's and I need something to do together. Is anyone out there in the same situation? What do you think about this for a boys day out?
