+Steinwälzer Posted June 27, 2008 Share Posted June 27, 2008 Last year on 27. June I found my first geocache! This was more like a training for the GPSr that I bought "just for fun and to play around a little bit" a few days ago. Then I discovered the option "Geocaching" and wondered what it is all about. After reading a little bit about it I thought that it would be a great way to learn how to use that GPSr. There was a cache near to my home, and out I went in the pouring rain, and found my first geocache The next day we went on a weekend trip to the coast to attend a photography course. I printed out the description of 4 more caches that were close to where we stayed, and found the time to search and find them... Now that's one year ago, and what was meant to be "a little GPSr training" became a new hobby! I have found over 500 caches now, collect geocoins, found new friends and saw a lot of new and exciting places. I crawled into tunnels and waded into rivers, and I spend a lot more time outdoors than before. To celebrate that I give away a "I love Geocaching" LE coin in antique gold. Just tell me your story about how you started geocaching and what it is now for you. (Of course this means one post per person, I guess nobody starts .completely new for more than one time...). I will choose the winner randomly. Cointest runs for 24 hours and closes tomorrow, 28. June, 10:00 German time (which should be 00:00 forum time if I am right...)! I am waiting for your stories, and good luck!!! Quote Link to comment
