Posted by dwayne23 on Dec. 23 2004,6:25 pmI finely got my gps. I bought a Meridian Gold (sorry Garman users) and I spent all day playing with it and my brother went and bought one last night after I have been telling him about Caching. There is one next to where he lives and several around me. He wants to go tonight and I am also ready. Any advices for me. I would like to thank every one for there help also. I need to buy some soft ware and do not know what is the best for me. Thanks and I am ready to go on the hunt.
Posted by PC Medic on Dec. 23 2004,6:32 pmUnless you are *REAL* familiar with the area and how to use a GPS or this is an extremely easy cache, I am not sure I would recommend a night hunt as your first. Might be best to wait till daylight.
Be sure to take extra batteries if it is a long hike, dress appropriately, cell phone if you have one (just in case) and oh yeah!, don't forget some trade items

That is great advice PC Medic. We own a Meridian Gold too and it works well for us. Good luck with caching and have fun.

Been a number of caches that in my haste to get to, I end up leaving my trades in my vehicle.
I have cached at nite in a totally unfamiliar area, and even with a bright light, it was a challenge. Have fun with all of them.
