A Geocaching phone too? Is there anything else I need? The GPS in my truck has a hard time finding Norfolk.

Crabby- you just need a real phone

I got about 2500 finds-- I love it. I use a Rhino 120, and love the mapping feature. I had (6) .50 cal ammo caches at one point but seems like I had a serial Geo-thief cause he took all six and three replacements I re-stashed and restocked. That kind of turned me off to being the cache'er. Those cans aren't cheap and installing the locks on them plus filling them up with prizes adds up.

Most of the cashes I have found in the desert are ammo boxes. I wondered about low life thieves taking them.

I am a pretty serious GCer when we camp. My BIL and me hit it pretty hard in the summer. I love any excuse to get in the outdoors and geocaching makes it all the more fun.

I have a Garmin eTrex off CL for $40 it's so-so for caching.
Later (about 1 month) I upgraded to a Garmin GPSmap 60 and it's deadly accurate most of the time.

I'd really like to get a new one for paperless GCing.

mcfarmall,

Yep, the little I know about GCing that's one thing that many recommend, thus my earlier comment about the Garmin 62s.

The GPS geeks also give high marks for the Garmin 60 that you recently picked up as well.

Bob

I now use my Iphone for geocaching. Works very well. Nice to have all the info at my finger tips, plus the internet to boot! I have 450 finds.

I love it. I've even found some on Manhattan, in Central Park, and even in Mid-Town. It's a great activity, some take you to places to see unique and special places that you'd ordinarily miss.
