As geocaching becomes more and more popular, stories like THIS ONE seem to be more common and it doesn't have to be.

If you are new to geocaching and especially if you are new to the use of a GPS, please be sure to familiarize yourself with how to use it before you set off into the woods.

Using a GPS is pretty simple once you get used to it and Geocaching is a fun sport to be enjoyed by the whole family, but like any other outdoor activity has its risks. Don't increase them by heading out unprepared.

Know the area and bring a map.
Know your GPS
Mark a waypoint back to your car
Dress appropriately
Bring plenty of water
Bring a cell phone (just in case)

Hopefully this unfortunate experience has not soured these girls on geocaching and they will give it another try once they are more prepared.
