  1. How did you find out about Geocaching?
  2. After spending the summer (2000) doing GPS fieldwork for Ducks Unlimited in Minnesota, I wanted to get a GPS unit of my own. I had no idea what I’d use it for, but I wanted one anyway. I searched the Internet for information on GPS units and came across the Geocaching.com site. I thought that sounded really cool and wanted to join, but the GPS units were several hundred dollars at the time. Having just finished school, my finances were a bit tight, so I didn’t order one right away. There was a great deal of information in the forums about what type of GPS unit to buy. At the time, the two most popular ones were the Garmin 12 and the Magellan 315. I was leaning toward the Garmin unit since one person had wrote that it seemed to be more rugged than the Magellan one.

  1. How did you find out about Geocaching?
  2. One day, in May 2004, I (the Queen) did an Internet search on GPS and games for my beloved hubby, Joker 1. He wanted to teach a course on high tech geography (G.I.S. etc) and needed some background information. Lo and behold I stumbled onto the geocaching.com website.

  3. When did you start Geocaching?
  4. We started geocaching in July 2004 a day after our oldest son bought a Gpsr with his 10th birthday money from friends. Our first cache was in Steinbach called "Stony Brook Cache" by riyehn . The GPS signals were wacky and our crew of five looked in all the wrong places and found it within ½ an hour by luck.
