+myers1006 Posted January 31, 2009 Share Posted January 31, 2009 Hi my name is Mike and I have just started geocaching a couple days ago and have two finds so far. For now I am mostly interested in the ones I have to hike a a few thousand yards to get, It gives me something to hike to instead of just walking through the woods. I have a few questions, last night I found one that was well beat up a little bit, it was an old Folgers can and the lid was in pretty bad shape. I know it is a few years old and probably doesn't get found much anymore but would it be alright if I took a little bit bigger tin can or plastic tupperware and kinda did a little cleaning up and putting it in the same spot when done. Another question is how good is the "Explorist Magellan 200 Handheld" for a starting gps unit. Right now I am using mostly a map and compass because my GPS is on my PDA and isn't rock and water friendly so I would prefer to leave it in my backpack. I have already bought the magellan for $60 on ebay and just waiting for it to get here but might put it up on craigslist since they are going for a little more on there, then get the one I want/need. Anyway thanks ahead of time for the answers and any other pointers you guys might have for a newbie Quote Link to comment
