Zuckerruebensirup Posted April 17, 2002 Share Posted April 17, 2002 I recently had the pleasure of crossing paths for the first time with another Geocacher while we were both out searching for (or, in my case, waiting for the coast to clear so I could re-hide it after logging) a cache. As we chatted for a bit and exchanged stories, he asked, "So what did you originally get your GPS for?" As it turns out, I 'borrowed' (ok, ok...took over) my husband's GPSr, which he had originally bought for marking his tree stand locations while bow hunting in a several-thousand acre public hunting area (Site M) in Illinois. Eight-Legs said that they used theirs for boating. The conversation piqued my curiosity, and has made me wonder how many Geocachers previously owned GPS receivers before they learned about Geocaching, or whether it was Geocaching itself that prompted them to purchase one. Please answer the following survey, and then share your story about when and why you originally purchased your GPS receiver, and what other activities you currently use it for: ------- Join us at our first "geo-gathering" on 4/27/02!
