Introduce Yourself

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, new and very green cacher from the Tampa, FL area here. I discovered this activity through a FB post on one of my scuba diving pages and it sounded interesting. Always looking for a reason to get wet and look for treasure but in the meantime, had no idea how many cashes there were to be found. Signed up yesterday and found my first cache today at lunch, located in the back lot of my workplace. Only took a few minutes. Pretty cool to see what people left in the container. I added my own trinket to the cache and put it back exactly. Looking forward to finding some scuba caches and exploring for other treasure.

Hello all, My name is Dalton and was once a solo cacher but now Im part of a team..We geocahe in and around Philadelphia/New Jersey area.

As of today I'm still a basic member but as soon as i hit a 100 smiles I will upgrade to premium. I'm at 93 as I write the message and I'm hoping to hit 100 in the next couple of days.  I started as a solo geocacher but my girls have joined in and love it hence the profile picture. They also wanted to start a channel so we did.(just started a channel).. we enjoy the hunt and laughing at yourselves when we go back and watch the videos.  We are still learning and really work hard to try not to show any locations, containers or any info about the cache we find. Unless we know the Co or have talked to or got permission from the CO... If you want to laugh at us as well please check out the link, the girls would the extra views or subscribers...or not ...lol

As a father I enjoy just being outside with my kids and doing a *free activity that we all have fun doing.....(*free = I mean having to buy snacks donuts/pretzels/ice creams or whatever...HA!)

Hello! I am brand new to geocaching and I can't wait to get started. There are plenty in my general vicinity north of Columbus, Ohio USA. I'm just jumping right in, so I hope that it's pretty self-explanatory to get started! :lol:

Hey fellow Cachers!  I'm based in Hobart, Tasmania but my folks are from Launceston, Tasmania so all of my finds are within those two cities so far because I don't travel much.  I've owned a Garmin Oregon 600 for years and had known since then that geocaching is a thing but it's took me until now to properly get in to it.  Some CO's and Cachers around Hobart may notice I have some of my finds with SamIAm1998 who is one of my closest friends: we both got in to caching at the same time.  If anyone is in southern Tasmania and wants to meet some new cachers, SamIAm1998 would love to meet you.  Happy caching and may your find count always be N +1!

Hey all! My name is Cheyenne and with my boyfriend Brendon we are CaywoodAdventures <3

I have known about geocaching for awhile since my nature center holds multiple camps per summer to educate the kids in the neighborhood. (I was a counselor and got to learn too!!) I never did it outside of the center and had no idea it was half as popular as it is! 

After a little research my boyfriend and I decided this is something we might enjoy, well we love it now. One month in and we have already planned out our trip to make it to a CITO event in another state!! We have learned a lot so quickly, but we know we have a LOT to learn and improve on. 

We hope to have premium before the event happens to fully enjoy the geo art and new city we will be exploring. Either way it is going to be an amazing experience and I can't wait to meet other treasure hunters! 

Thank you for all being kind human beings. I love this community so much already!

Hi WillowBrookJonkerman here! I’m pretty much brand new to geocaching. After moving to the west coast of Canada only a few weeks ago my goal has been to discover the natural beauty within the area. With that being said I was recently out on a hike with my coworker and he brought up geocaching. Being the curious person I am, I downloaded the app. And with a few tips from him I can’t wait to get going. 

 

Cache you out there!!

Hola! Me and my son have just been kicked into the geocache universe - we found our first cache this week and we were jumping around like loony spring lambs... guess we've caught the bug! We are looking forward to more adventures, especially when we visit the Lakes in August :-)

(we are from the East coast of England).

Hi Everyone 

 

I’m Lucy and I have recently started geocaching. It’s wonderful to be part of this global community! 

 

I’m lucky enough to live in a beautiful part of West Yorkshire (UK) up on the Pennine Way. I’ve recently started geocaching (having dabbled in the past when the kids were small). I’ve found a few local caches and as a result wandered into some stunning scenery not too far from where I live which has been an added bonus as I thought I pretty much knew the entire area!  It’s added a great dimension to my solo walks and as I travel for work from time to time, its giving me an excuse to explore the places I visit. I was in Milton Keynes recently and had to leave the area with a DNF which is frustrating.... but I’ll be back! 

 

I also have small grandchildren and geocaching is a great way to encourage walks. 

 

I’m looking forward to doing more and if there are any Yorkshire geocachers out there who can give me any tips that would be great! I’m sure there is a lot I need to know, but for now I’m happy just being here and getting started! 

 

Best,

Lucy

Hi, just saying hello. Had an account since the tricky days of a Blackberry in 2011 but never given it my full attention.

Any advice on how to get more involved?

Bonjour kimin88. Bienvenue !

 

Il y a possibilité de demander une période d'essai gratuite en passant par le centre d'aide du site geocaching.com. Je ne connais pas la procédure exacte par cœur mais, en gros, il faut contacter le QG (HQ en anglais) et le leur demander dans le formulaire de contact.

I did orienteering a few decades ago and heard about geocaching a long time ago. I took my housemate's daughter out geocaching recently and thought it would be great if we created a cache for our neighborhood. Unfortunately for us, a premium cache is hidden near us, forbidding us from posting one in front of our house. It's more than a little frustrating.

Hey there. I was an avid cacher for years and then my full time job derailed my finds for a while. i a, trying to get back into it but my android app is all different and even my desktop view has no "go/start" button. How does this work now?

Guess you know any physical cache would forbid it if it's within 528' .   :)

May be a good thing though.  Cache a while.  See a few more examples of how people are treating other folk's containers, properties n stuff. 

 - For example,  all three caches you found have red wrenches showing they Needed Maintenance, and either were never fixed, or the CO didn't understand an Owner Maintenance log. 

Then decide if you really want strangers approaching your front yard .   ;)      Good luck.

You don't say if you're using the geocaching app or another's.

Maybe a refresher with  Geocaching 101 will help ?    :)

Hi Everyone,

Hi everyone. Matt here.  Downloaded the app. The other day. Have know about Caching for a while. Never really had time with the kids being small. Now they are getting bigger. They like the idea of treasure hunting, and we like camping, exploring, and going new places. Seemed like a good fit. Hope we have lots of fun out there.

Hello all, Lil_Red_Chevy from SE Ohio here. I found Geocaching accidentally while Munzee hunting in 2014. I have logged a few here and there since, but I now have a lot more time to dedicate, so I have decided to jump in whole hog. only 29 finds so far, but I have 2 trips planned for concentrated geocaching in the near future.
