  1. We are pretty new to the sport/game. (Only 100+ finds so far) But being in central Texas, I'm enjoying the winter caching more than summer for sure. It's amazing how many more caches we can go for when we aren't sweating gallons the first five minutes! I may be singing a different tune mid February! TX Stephens
  2. Thank you all for taking the time to reply. I enjoy caching, but not enough to drop that kind of money to have custom coins minted. Maybe one day if I win the lottery. I am pretty interested in trading or buying from other players/collectors. I will use the various sites you have written about as well. Hopefully we will find some in caches soon.
  3. (Moderator, move if needed) Hello All! I am pretty new to your world, but am really loving it! We have just about 40 caches under our belts, and have already made the investment in a GPS (In it for the long haul). I have been "eyeballing" Geocoins from the start of our adventure and have been intrigued. I have a few questions I was hoping you could help me out with. (Sorry if this has been covered before): 1. Where do I get Geocoins? I know there seem to be a million different websites to get some from, but I never really know what I am looking at when I go to those sites. Does anyone have any helpful experience in this area? I also know they can be obtained from finding them in caches. But, honestly, how often does this happen? 2. If I do buy or find one, can I keep it? From reading the forums, it seems that a number of players keep the GC's they find. Is this an accepted practice, or should they really be kept in circulation? If I buy one, should it go in to the world, or can I keep it? I know these sound like silly questions, but I want to know what I'm doing (and how to) when I start collecting GC's. Thanks for the help!
  4. That is really neat! I can't wait until we get into the coin aspect of caching.
  5. That's REAL rain! I was thinking something a little lighter. Looks like a great time though!
  6. It has been raining here as well. Although I'm new to this, I've enjoyed caching in rain and shine. Less people are around during the rain which is nice. The mrs. Hates when I track mud in the house afterwards though
  7. Albiet, we are new to GC'ing, we have enjoyed doing a few cemetery caches. The first one we did gave us plenty of history about our small town that we didn't know about. I have to agree with other people that older cemeteries are more interesting to cache in. Today we actually went to a modern cemetery to cache in, and an active funeral was taking place near a cache. There were 4 caches in the cemetery, so we avoided that one. I think it is all about showing respect. I know this has been said over and over, but I just wanted to give my two cents. TXSTXT
