Are there any other geocachers out there?

It's something that I've recently got into, and I'm loving it. Spending hours on my mountain bike following my GPS.

It's a good excuse to get out and about.

Yeah i did it once with some mates who have decided to call themselves rather laughably the geocache bandits. I found it to be pretty pointless myself, i mean if the stuff in the boxes was funny/edible/money/porn then it would be quite fun but its just a bunch of shit so...


My mates got fustrated and decided to spoil it for everyone else and just take the stuff from the box and not replace it, i imagine there are loads of people who do shit like that.

My oppo decided before a day time session he needed to tick off another cache. I spent half an hour in a local park looking like a right feckin weirdo snaffling round in the bushes hanging around like a beefer waiting to get my lolly scoffed

What is it exactly
It is techno-bollocks for people who have lost the will to stalk 13 year olds.

Its like Twitter. But you have to run up hills. Without the girls.

Google 'Paras' and you'll be close.

hours spent looking for trig points only to find out they are unprotected and have been obliterated by farmers. complete waste of time and your better off playing golf or tying both of your feet together and running the marathon backwards with a anchor dragging behind you

I've really enjoyed Geocaching - its proved to be a a great way of expending blinds and assorted UXO, just need to hide it in a pile of rocks and post the location on one of the sites like we did for letterboxing, and before you know it its Barry Scott time

I used to do geocaching when I first got a gps, it kept the kids occupied and I got bored of it way before they did. It does seem to be an american thing, but then of course they have a hell of a lot more wilderness to hide things in.

I just had a check of that site P_Albert listed above, it appears they aren't just in rural areas there is one here in the old library that was shelled in the War, with some bizarre cryptic clue as to its' location in the building! 8O if it is just crap that people put in them maybe we can start up an ARRSE one, where you look only for ones that have cans of Ale in them previously planted by ARRSers - a kind of GEOCACHE Orienteering/Crawl Event 8)
