Cache me..I dare you.

I have a new interest. As far as I can tell it is highly addictive.

Geocaching is a not-so-new "hobby", if you will. It began in about 2000 and had somewhat of a slow start. It has since picked up in many states around the country. Florida, apparently, has a large following of like-minded enthusiasts that are just as seemingly addicted as I hope to become.

For those that may be curious to read for themselves as to what this is about - I encourage you to go here: geocaching dot com.

All I need is a GPS and I'll be set to go! I believe I've already got my partner in crime, but..the more the merrier! If you're already involved in this and stop by humble little blog..let me know! I'd love to maybe do a "ride-along" with someone that already has a GPS - if anything just to see what all the hullabaloo is about. But also to see what type of GPS I'd be interested in purchasing.

Stay tuned ladies 'n gents.. I think I've found my inspiration!

just be careful where you look for and/or put your loots. People have been arrested for 1, trespassing and 2, putting suspicious packages in the wrong places.

most people just get yelled at for trying to put their packages in the wrong places tho

GPS sounds like an essential element to be Its like wanting to play football without the football.

Geocoaching is what I tell the cops I am doing when I am trying to move my drugs.

That would be geocaching dot com, folks. Definately an interesting hobby to have. You can think of it as treasure hunting (at least for the FTF's).
