Just decided to give this a shot having seen some information on it a few days ago when I got some GPS software for my bike rides.

I could see this being mildly addicting =)

I was quite pleased that I had my Blackberry find quite a few caches near where I work. I have stuff to keep me busy during lunch now. Also took my son to find one after picking him up at camp. He was all smiles.

I'm in the Waukesha area, so maybe I will bump into a few of you on the hunt.

WELCOME!!

you may find that caching is like salsa.....

you start with mild until you try medium, then you progress to HOT!!!

Another analogy is that caching is just like potato chips. You can't have just one chip. You gotta have more.

In other words, once you find that first cache, you gotta find more Wink

Welcome to WGA, Timmy.
