    Just started Geocaching

    So I picked up a Garmin 62st with the geocaching feature. Found my first one yesterday. It was a little challenging to get to get it but it was a lot of fun finding it.

    I've got a bunch in the Truckee Meadows area downloaded already. This one that I was Steepilicious. Having street tires on the Xterra made it a little slippery to get to. Can't wait to start looking for others. I'm down in the Bay Area right now, for family, and there are several on the coast that look fun.

    As well as having fun, Geocaching will teach you how to navigate. With and without your GPS! Following the needle is rarely the best way to get there. Its also a great travel guide. Its taken me places I never would have been and we've found stuff in the middle of nowhere that we never would have seen. There's a couple of pictures in my Logandale post in past runs of a really funny Geocache we found (GC3A45Z). Enjoy it and have fun!!
    Its just a road with a few rocks, keep driving!

    Yeah it looks like there are few in places I wouldn't have thought to go before. Also the next there's land nav course, I'll have the GPS as well. It was a good investment, and I am glad I made it already.
