  1. New to caching/geocoins. Hi everyone!


    Once I discovered a geocoin in the first cache we found, it was pretty much a given that I'd be getting into these things. I've made a few purchases here and there, and have my first ten coins. Looking through everyone's trade lists and websites, I've come to the realization that I will be going broke, very quickly. :drama:


    So in the interest of my pocketbook, I've pretty much accepted that I will mostly have to limit my coin purchases to newer coins.


    Still, even with this iron resolve of mine, there are a couple coins that came before that I NEED. Oh yes, ever elusive Celtic Peacock, one day you will be mine. Oh yes. I swear next time I see it on ebay I'm bidding the farmstead ;)

  2. We are just outside of Milwaukee on the Milw/Waukesha County border. Nice to meetcha! My husband and I just started caching a few weeks ago. Gets us out together. We recently signed up for our first event...the Cache Bash in West Bend in August. Anyone else going?

  3. We're pretty new to this too...but here's our list of "must haves" so far:


    Our Camelbacks. It holds 1000ml of water and functions just like a back pack. So by bringing it, I always have enough fluids and can carry all my stuff. Even if it turns out to be a mostly-in-the-car day.


    I have a baggy full of "swag" I guess, stuff for the kids, smashed pennies, foreign coins.

    I have a baggy with several spare batteries

    I have a few extra baggies. I also carry a few plastic bags, for picking up trash, or if nothing else, to throw muddy shoes in when back at the car.

    I have a small notebook, two pens.

    I carry bug spray (necessary!).

    I have a flashlight.

    Any geocoins or travelbugs that I'm moving that day.

    I also have stuff in my pack that may someday come in handy, little sheets that dissolve into soap, pack towel, lighter.


    I totally need to get some gloves...some stuff out there....ICK. My husband this weekend found a cache in a hidey hole, and it had been taking over by an ant nest. Heebie Jeebies! Glad it was him. I don't mind getting dirty, but getting crawled on is different! I like the idea of mirror on a stick thingy too.


    Anyway, this is what we start with, I am guessing we'll be adding more as we live and learn.
