- What was it about geocaching that got you hooked into the game?
We started in the month of May in 2004.
In 2004, I just had purchased my first computer, eager to learn. We watched a weekend computer show on TV, when they did a spot on a couple with kids searching for treasure on the Vancouver shores with a GPS.. They listed the games web address.
Just the idea of treasure hunting brings out the inner child in us all. Finding it with the GPS, and making trades, was thrilling enough. Then there was the race for first to finds. That made the game more exciting as well.
