anybody geocache while camping?

my DW and I recently purchased a hand held gps for a camping trip to the black hills for some trail riding. When we got home I was playing with it and it had a geocaching thing on it. So I looked it up and found a few around home. So we went out and tried it and we got hooked. Now I have looked around where we will be camping and plan on geocaching on the side of our trail riding

Many parks and camp grounds have Geocaches. I have several in the park I frequent.

Yep, doc73 is the GC.com user name. Love it, we have seen some neat places we never would have known about otherwise and not just while away even around here.

GeoCache

We hunt in the Blue Mountains of Oregon. There are several caches placed in both easy and difficult destinations. Pretty cool and the grand kids love it.

I used to geocache quite a bit. Haven't done it lately. I hid the first cache in our area in 2001. It's still there.

As others have said, it's a great way to enhance the travel adventure.

Started caching in early 2002. I don't have as many finds as I'd like, but I've always had too many hobbies! The nice thing about caching is you can roll it in with other things you do--camping, mountain biking, motorcycling, off roading, etc. I still use my first handheld yellow Garmin E-Trex that my ex won at a Christmas party in 2001. It's a relic, doesn't have maps in it, but it still works just fine for caching.

And, of course, my GC username is--Taranwanderer.

I used to Geocache a lot, but these days only now and then. It is a great activity since a lot of campers like hiking. BTW, if you have an Android phone (don't know about iPhone), there are several apps that finds caches based on your location. This way you don't have to remember to search and prepare prior to a camping trip. I like this one https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ocaching&hl=en
