Hi!

I am new to geocahing. I went to a teacher's workshop at my school about geocaching. It was so cool. Any help you can give me will be helpful. My local walmart has the Triton 400 on sale for 149.00. This would be a cool  for my wife and daughter to do together.
Also is there any local groups or club in Cape May county NJ.

Thank you
Bounce

Welcome to the wonderful world of caching!

I'm not familiar with the Triton 400, myself.

I can point you to South Jersey Geocaching.

Also, I'd love to invite you to check out two non-regional caching groups - The Military Assoc. of GeoCachers and GeoCachers 4 Christ, both of which I'm personally involved with.

Happy trails!

Stay away from most the the Etrex family if you are intending in Geocaching within heavy cover. I always had probs with these finding sats and really made the hunt a heck of a lotta work.

I still like the older units and most of the Magellan line always did good.
Still to this day my favorite GPS would be the Garmin III Plus.

Oh!  "Hint" a straight line is NOT always the shortest distance between two points when it comes to Geocaching.

Quinn, The Garmin etrex series has models with much improved sensitivity look for "H" in the model #.
