Hey there,

my name is 1Meyra1! I'm from Germany and currently 19 years old. I'm just starting with geocaching and would love to make some friends here to write and share my experiences with!

Welcome! Some people have different experiences, though some people prefer to find local groups where they can find people who they can physically meet up with.

 

If you have any questions, feel free to post in here and hopefully somebody can help you out.

 

I'm in Australia. :D

In many areas there are Geocaching Facebook groups. Try a search like this. ‘Your County’ Geocaching

Herzlich willkommen, Meyra!

The best way to start is to try Attending any nearby Event (when were available).

(Sorry for the German post. :-))

 

Hallo Meyra,

 

es gibt auch einen deutschsprachigen Teilbereich hier im gesamten Forum: https://forums.geocaching.com/GC/index.php?/forum/148-german-speaking-forum-deutschsprachiges-forum/&_fromLogin=1

 

Das (gesamte) Forum ist natürlich super, um sich auszutauschen, wenn du aber Interesse an Kontakt vor Ort hast (gemeinsame Cachetouren zum Beispiel), dann ist es eher nicht sooo geeignet. Aber wenn, dann eben im deutschsprachigen Forenteil - denn hier tummeln sich eben doch Cacher aus der ganzen Welt, da werden wenige aus NRW dabei sein. ;-) Dafür wären dann Events vor Ort am besten.

 

Wieso bist du laut Profil eigentlich "18 - 21 Jahre alt"? :-)

 

Herzliche Grüße aus Karlsruhe - ein bisschen südlicher -

Jochen

Welcome! In case you have not yet read The Help Center here's some good information to know: 

5.1. Hide your first geocache

Hiding a geocache is a big milestone for any geocacher. Before hiding your first cache, we encourage you to find at least 20 geocaches. Finding a variety of caches makes it easier to create an enjoyable experience for others. To find caches, be sure to download the Geocaching® app or search our online map.

Thanks for the tip... we live in the middle of nowhere and me and my husband, separate people but same team have found  18 so far, many where we are are broken or lost so have reported them for maintenance. :)  The nano ones I have trouble finding!!!! but its a mission to find one...  The cache I have hid, is for children and fun and easy, as its my first geocache.,. but I am a rule follower so made sure all was correct before hiding.

@CleverCloggs, do you live in Portugal?  If so, you should update your home coordinates.  You can correct them here:  https://www.geocaching.com/account/settings/homelocation

 

Having accurate home coordinates will help speed up the publication of your pending caches.

My location is Avis in Portugal and logged as such. 

 

Great!  I checked again, and your updated home coordinates removed the flag on the cache pages you submitted.  I am sure that your friendly local Community Volunteer Reviewer will be along in due course to review your caches.  Thanks for joining the ranks of cache hiders, especially in a rural area where caches might be few and far between.

How happy I would be if I had 94 caches to search for here in the Amazon... :)
