i dont really understand geocaching.. explain please :)
Internet / GPS based treasure hunt. info and coordinates posted on geocaching,com, you take your GPS and go find the container full of trinkets.


I'm in. I too have hidden and found. Not much activity for me the last few months. Need to get going with it. I always 'intend' on adding that to the list of things to do on a trail, but never actually do it.

Maybe the Main Divide run?

On that note, is there a way to calibrate a GPS (lower end unit)?

Heck, if I'm available I'd like to try this geocaching you speak of....

Poker and other dave...

You can't really calibrate. The way it works is as a computer/calculator. All ones and zero's.

BUT... I had the same problem with my first device. It gave me too many options and I tinkered too much. BUT, I learned from that experience. Bring your GPS units with you to the events, and remind me. I can probably help you out.

I've only had one REALLY old cheapy unit that I couldn't figure out. No manual for that one either, which made it tougher.

Did this ever get off the ground? My family has recently picked this up and I think I would rather do it with FJ'ers.

I never tried it. Sounds fun but I too don`t have a GPS. I guess I could tag along and when I notice the whole group pointing at one area I could run like hell to see if I could find it before everyone else got there :rofl:

Been awhile since I did any. Regular modern day treasure hunt. Even the older GPS units should be good enough, because you get clues to try and figure out the locations--it's not just find-it-at-the-coordinates easy! Amazing what can be hidden in plain sight.

Check it out at:

Yeah, it's the same link Kokopeli put out...
