I did it for a little while. Just don't subscribe to their email notification feature:rolleyes: . You'll get bombarded with updates. Some folks get pretty creative about it.

I just started, seems like a good way to really learn what the GPS can do. I've already used it more than I have since I bought it.

Its also a great way to get the kids involved!

Just go for a nice drive, walk, hike and bike trip and you'll see its family fun!

Hey, I've never heard of this before. I checked out the link that Nugefan left and this seems really cool. I see some caches in my area. I think I might give this a try sometime. Thanks for info!:cheers:

never done it myself, but I stumbled accross this cache just yesterday out in Dawson Forest..

I was kinda scared opening it. I figured it was a geocache but you never know..

The litte camera inside didn't work, so I just left a message on the notepad provided. It had a few flashlights and some batteries. All of which looked to be in about the same condition as the camera. So, i didn't take anything, just closed it back up and left it where i found it.
