What do you take with you on a cache hunt?

Recommended Posts

Hey people. It seems that everytime I go out looking for a cache, I think of something else I would like to have with me. Shy of loading up a backpack with all my worldly posessions, I starting a mental list of those things I would need most and wondered what everyone else takes with them. I realize that this might be an old topic, but since the things you carry might have changed, I thought it might be a good question to ask...

...a gigantic, oversized poster of Atlantic City, and on the back side is the text, in larger-than-life letters, "Discuss new features (or feature requests), bugs, etc. specific to the Geocaching.com site."...although I have no earthly idea why. icon_biggrin.gif

Depends on how far from town, and how far from the road the cache is. But I usually have a medium size Swiss Army knife, water, snacks, and a small first aid kit. I should have sunscreen too but I often forget this time of year.


Also I keep the "Ten Essentials" in my car, minus the map.

After today, I am going to carry a GPS case that has a belt-loop.


Good news: I still have the GPS

Bad news: I don't have my case and spare rechargeable batteries.

Seems like much, but packs all together in a nice little package that we can take anywhere. Living in South Florida, we see sudden and violent weather changes, and having my family with me on all of our caches, I like being prepared!


Besides, I have the light pack, the wife carries the child when needed! LOL
