This picture was taken on January 6, 2008. The temp was 60 F, just a few days before the temp was 0 F, so a major thaw. It is in a parking lot of a local park where we went to find a couple of caches that day. It is a 1986 Chevy Celebrity, 4 banger. I bought it for $100 a couple of years ago and use it to go to work and drive around town (saves wear and tear on my good car). It gets around 25 mpg, suburban driving. BTW, we did not get stuck.

Well we have a spyder eclipse. Not recommended for those off road caches, I wouldn't recommend it for caching at all. But it’s always good to have on the hot summer days we get in the south! :unsure:

I use a Land Rover Discovery. She's a great ride for caching, hauling the boat or sea doos, carrying horse feed, and of course...the family!

1979 Scout Traveler, until I finish building my 1974 Scout II. (Are you seeing a trend here?)

My 04 Xterra usually gets me everywhere I need to go. Never had a problem yet. Gas mileage sucks though.

I wish I still had my 1990 Geo Tracker. It was my first car. I got it for graduation and drove it until it fell apart. The hood would have been a great place for the geocaching logo. Not to mention the fact that it was a Geo Tracker. I would have had sure finds with that car it would have found the caches for me. :lol:

I feel "outdoorsy" when we take one of the 4 wheel drives. But more often then not, we take the Ford POS with 215k. In town we have been attemting to bicycle but that just isn't as fun!

My new cachemobile is now ready to go. Put the front bumper and winch on last week. I think this one will get me real close....

Toyota Prius. More caches per gallon!

 

If my old Civic was street legal, it would get more than you. It get's 40 mpg on a bad day, normally 50.

I got my Saturn SC2 to get me close, and my Specialized FSR Ground Control to get me closer. I also have these things attached to the bottoms of my legs, feet they call them.

Primarily, a 1992 Dodge Dakota long bed

Or, a 2003 white Dodge Stratus (not pictured). Both vehicles belong to my parents, though, which is why the truck has a ham radio call sign on the back, as my dad is a ham radio operator. The plates on both vehicles are ham plates as well. The geocaching emblem is a magnet, so I can transfer it to either vehicle.

2005 Subaru Outback LL Bean. 4th Subaru we have owned, and the best one yet. Gets us where we want to go in comfort. Much more comfortable than the 77 CJ7 we used to race or my husband's 51 Military jeep.

'99 jeep TJ

 

We still have the soft top hanging in the garage with a bikini top over the front seats we put on in mid april. Now that the temps are getting in the low 90's by early afternoon, the soft top will go back on in the next week or two.

 

My son and I just got done putting a locker in the front differential Saturday, so am ready for those "tougher" excursions :laughing: .

For caches where 4X4 is necessary, my 1999 Dodge Diesel Quad Cab 4x4

 

For most other caches ... My 2008 Honda Element ( AWD) in a nice Tangerine orange. My caching username is on the license plates.

I will post pics later, but will tell ya now.

I started caching in my 1999 Dodge Dakota. Then gas started going way up. The only time I use the truck to cache now is if I know I need it for the area. I bought a 1989 Chevy Celebrity last year for $350. Used it till the tranny started to slip and was unfixable. Now I have a 1989 Mazda MX6 that I just got. I use the wife's 2006 Subaru Impreza when she goes too. I also use my 2006 Yamaha Kodiak in the areas that you can take an ATV. I have even used my mountain bike. Next year it will be a street bike too. They are all travle bugs too now.

Well, I got done with my latest project. Here it is. Its a 04 Grand Prix! You would be Spuirsed where it will go. Once I get some more time and money, it'll get a set of adjustable airbags... that way it'll have the higher clearances that I need for the last few in my local area. Of course, by then, I'm also hoping to have a Jeep that I can do the same to...

You can't see it, but there's a wireless keyboard with touchpad on it.

 

The Last thing I want to do is put a Touchpad screen in.

my only car. A 1996 ford aspire. It is a piece of crap but gets the job done. I looked it up on kbb.com, it has trade in value of 160 bucks. LOL

My main transportation is my '06 Prius which averages 48 mpg in the spring-fall months (42 winter). If need be I can take my '96 Jeep Cherokee. I plan on hitting three caches at a lake tomorrow that'll be easier to reach if I take my kayak, so it'll be the Jeep day. I live in a very rural area and since I've hit all the local caches I now have to drive 40-70 miles to get any more caches I suspect I'll be using the Prius more.

I use my Ford Ranger Edge to get close then jump on my $130.00 7 speed bicycle equiped with a handlebar mount for my Venture HC.
