Hello all! I've done a bit of geocaching before, but I lost access to my previous account as it's been a few years since I was active. Currently located in SE Tennessee.

Hey, we're living in Chattanooga right now - hopefully we'll see you at an event sometime.

ATSM here, New to the Geocashing community here. My girls went to a summer camp this year in St. Mary's County and got to try it, then got me hooked. We've only been able to find a few as the heat here in Maryland has been nasty. But hopefully we'll get back out there soon and have so fun. Headed to CO in a few days and plan to look around, hopefully find some.

 

Am planning on a trip to Iceland in the next few years and was thinking how cool would it be to do a traveler from here in Maryland and see if it can make it Iceland before I do. The question... How? How do we do this? Do we need to register a geocache number some where, some how?

 

Is there anyone in the St. Mary's, Calvert, Charles County, Maryland area that can meet me somewhere and show me the ropes?

Be welcome!

You just need to buy a Travel Bug, attach it to anything you like (smaller the better to travel between caches).

Then you Activate it here where you can set a given mission... by example "This TB wants to reach Iceland before we do."

Drop your TB inside any cache or at an Event.

Hey group! I am not new to GeoCaching but I am new to how it works now! I scored a deal on a old Garmin Vista (top of the line back in its day) I mostly use it for adventuring on jeep trails..

 

I thought i would revisit GeoCaching with my child. I was very surprised and sort of disappointed to find out all this fun hobby has gone the way of "Pay for full version" :(

 

"back in my day..."   lol 

 

Anyhow, cant wait to find some Caches...  hope I can stumble on a free trial to test the waters...

Be welcome again.

 

Any geocacher can use the "full version" using the homepage instead of simply the free app. Cheer up!

Hi all,

I had meant to try out geocaching for quite some time already but somehow the time was never right - until now! I tried it out with my family before and in our holidays and the wonderful people hiding caches brought us to some extraordinarily beautiful places. The sentence "we would never have come here, had it not been for the cache" was uttered more than once.

Can't wait for all the new adventures, in particular in and around Vienna/Austria, where we are based.

So... hi everyone! :-)

IIRC, if you were ever a pm, you won't get a free trial.  

 - Doesn't hurt to ask though,  just hit "contact us" on the bottom of most forum and cache pages

I grabbed a blue etrex legend around the same time, IIRC you got a better deal.   :D   They still sit in vehicles in case someone needs a loaner.

Took a look at the timeline of your last finds, and can't figure out what you feel has changed.   Please explain.  Thanks.:)

There's been basic/pm memberships well-before you took a break from the hobby.  

There was a ten-buck-once "paid" app for iphone and android.  I had windows phone then, and paid pm just to get what's considered "advanced" today.

When the site realized no one's getting paid on an app that was once-n-done, the other two came over to the pm payment plan too.

 - And at the same time, the windows phone app died off...   aannnd I went back to a handheld GPSr. 

Basic members can still play free, just that you have to work a bit more for it, now that "send to gps" was canned due to issues with plug ins and  browsers.

Hi there, my name is Nikki, and I have been Geochaching for a little over a year.  Still learning.  I go out with my dad who also loves grocaching.  I also have taken my Girl Guide unit out a few times and found some with my unit.  My unit has also made up a cache and I hid it for them.  We put a trackable coin in it, also Girl Guides of Canada, and are watching it travel.  Its in Newfoundland right now.

I am still struggling with the lingo and definitions that everyone uses, but slowly learning.  Im going on holidays here in month and can't wait to go geocachin, its even part of our schedule.
