How to tell if caches are in my area

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I'm new to geocaching and don't have my GPS yet (Monday), but was wondering how I would tell just by reading the site which caches are not too far from me.

Hey. go to http://www.geocaching.com.au and click on maps, then Sydney. You should be able to zoom in to your area. I'm from Adelaide, so if i screw this up blame the government, but i think some caches in Southern Sydney are: Hairy potter, two suns in the sunset, Kidz korner and ILLA WRONG. Hope this helps you out.

 

Invasion's a comin!

OK I figured it out.

I thought it was supposed to open a new page or something when you click on it, but it displays info down the bottom of the screen dynamically.

 

It's cold outside, there's no kind of atmosphere,

I'm all alone, more or less,

Let me fly, far away from here,

Fun, fun, fun, in the sun, sun, sun...

I want to lie shipwrecked and comatose,

Drinking fresh mango juice,

Goldfish shoals, nibbling at my toes,

Fun, fun, fun, in the sun, sun, sun...

Fun, fun, fun, in the sun, sun, sun...

I also figured out how to compare the UTM coordinates with my Sydway icon_smile.gif Makes things much easier.

Tomorrow, I will have to head for the $2 shop near work and get some geocaching containers.

Any recommendations? icon_smile.gif

Go Lo and Clints as well as Woolworths and Coles sell good caching containers. I find the ones with lock down bits on the lid are great. They do not pop open from too much being stuffed into it. Also the round cylinder type with screw on lid are very good.Just make sure that whatever you get is waterproof if possible.My least favoured ones are the ones that look like an ice cream container. They seem to get a lot of condensation in them.

Thanks!

 

I got a couple from a $2 shop but they have RED lids hehe. Maybe I will hide them upside down lol.

 

We didn't come here to cause trouble

We just came here to do the Red Dwarf Shuffle.
