    I got my youngest hooked on it too. Conveniently for us there are a whole mess of caches around us. We can run out after dinner or hunt a few on our way to the range.

    I only have 5 finds so far, but there are literally hundreds within a 20 mile radius.

    I tried to get my family involved a few years ago; but, my kids never got interested.

    Yeah but please dont leave happy meal toys.

    One of the neat things is the geobugs and other trackables. I have one I haven't set out yet. One of my former coworkers has one that last I saw had made it to Europe.

    Yeah, although people might not want to sign the log (pun intended)...

    I am not a fan of geocachers or geocaching. City folk coming out to our neck of the woods and clogging up trails scaring game and destroying the environment. I consider geocaches trash and I dispose of it when I find it. Sorry folks stop leaving your trash all over the place.

    How do you know they are geo caching? Aren't the trails for everybody? Sorry, didn't know you owned the woods. As far as trash and enviroment, I see locals that are just as bad as "city folk"

    I see a geocache I throw it away. Cleaning up the environment of the trash.

    Geocachers are easy to spot. Way out of their element.
