"GAMES" magazine had a Sudoku puzzle (Jan 09?) that once you solved could be used to get coordinates to something called a 'geocache'? Solved the puzzle easy enough. Looked online to see where the coords led to (somewhere in Oregon or Washington). Then looked at a website referenced in the puzzle/article - geocaching.com. Hmm, that sounds pretty cool, I'd really like to try that. Alas, no GPS. Several months later, Staceycakes says, let's go visit my friends camp (in the lower Adirondacks). You know, hon, we should really get a GPS. So we got a Garmin Nuvi which made the trip SO much easier than trying to read a mapquest printout. (Prior to the trip, I printed out a half dozen caches in the area). Had some downtime and I took the friends dad with me and we found 2 that day. Hooked!!

I am August of 2002. I had to go home and re-check my coordinates because I put them in wrong the first time!

During Christmas '09 my wife's cousin was telling us all about his geocaching adventures in Ithaca. My wife and I couldn't afford a GPS at the time, but we were intrigued. That same christmas, my brother had given us some iTunes gift cards, and around the end of March '10 my wife decided to spend one on the geocaching app. We found a few caches that night and have been going strong since.

I got my husband a gps for his birthday in 2005 because he never trusted his compass while hunting. A friend had a small paperback on geocaching by HF John's brother and he let me read it. My first find was in Sept. 2006 and my husband wanted to use his gps that November for hunting and I was not very happy to give it up! He did not keep it for long!
