I am 49 and from the North Island of beautiful New Zealand.
I have only seriously got into Geocaching at the beginning of this year. I have been using some free software on my smartphone but next month I hope to buy a Garmin handheld GPS receiver.
So far I have found 71 caches and have put out one of my own as well.
My job involves quite a bit of driving so I have been able to pick up some finds when I have some time up my sleeve, in fact my latest find was earlier today....
I stopped for lunch at a rest area that I have frequented for years. I fired up my GPS and searched for the nearest cache. Would you believe that it was 2 metres away. I could almost reach out and touch it. That was the easiest find I have ever had :-)
I like the way this sport can be done anywhere in the world and at any time by young and old alike. It makes a walk fun. It gets me off the couch too. I know I will be doing this for a long time yet.
