Wow, thanks for all the replies!! Definitely a lot of items I would not have thought of, so I'm definitely glad I asked. Honestly, I know to be as safe as possible, but it wouldn't have dawned on me to bring things like a whistle or a mylar blanket. You never know when a sticky situation will present itself!
Hi all!! My name is Amanda, and I'm a newbie to geocaching with my husband, David. As you can see by my join date, I started lurking long ago!! I never did get around to buying a GPS, so my interest in geocaching kind of fell by the wayside. Not anymore, as we just purchased our first GPS today! Looking forward to posting more and more as I become a true geocacher.
I'm a newbie! I became very interested in geocaching a few years ago, but never invested in the GPS to actually start. Well, hopefully my GPS will be here this week so that my husband and I can go on our first caching adventure this weekend (finally!!). We were actually just planning on packing a lunch and making a day of it (going to do some hiking as well). I just wondered what essentials or must have items would you suggest a newbie to bring? I don't want to get out into the middle of the woods and think, "Gosh, why didn't I bring THAT?". Of course, maybe I really don't need much more than my GPS. I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.
