Geocaching?

Any one geocache? I seem to be really bad at it. I find the location alright, but the actual caches are always missing or empty :(

I don't have a tracker but I like letterboxing.....the non tech version of geocaching. You go on a website to find clues to hidden boxes and away you go. There are some hidden at a certain Rennisiance fair where you have to seek out certain characters and give them super secret passwords, to get your book stamped. Its quite fun.

I've been geocaching for about 8 years, and I love it. There are some great caches, but unfortunately, there is a lot of crap out there. If you like to hike, the better caches are in the woods, as opposed to, say, the strip mall. If you're new to it, Google the smaller types of caches like nano and bison tube, so you know what kind of thing you're looking for. That is the type of cache you're likely to find in your typical urban/suburban location, along with pill bottles and magentic keyholders (the most common hide in a guardrail).

I've found letterboxes too, totally by accident.

I am really bad at geocaching too! I use my iPhone so that could be the problem. I have kids that play travel soccer so sometimes we can look for a cache while we are out. Trying to get the rest of the teammates involved. I like letterboxing better but there aren't to many around here.

What kind of gps does everyone use?

Just stumbling across this post... I am a geocacher going back to the beginning of it and have found 1200+. I need to get back into it, as I haven't been so active the past few years. It always takes the kids and me to places we might never have seen otherwise.

I used to cache a lot, and then gas got crazy pricey and we stopped going so much. I miss it.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
