    Anyone ever tried it? I did a long time ago. Gotta do it again. If yo

    Yeah - I used to hunt caches alot, but haven't done it recently. It was
    alot of fun. Sometimes I had problems finding the caches. Alot of the
    times it was my fault, but sometimes the cache had been removed or put
    in a different place by mugglers.

    I enjoy the hunt, always wanted to place a cache and I bought an ammo
    container and stuff to put in a cache. I have never placed it though,
    can't seem to find a 'unique-enough' place. Also wondering about the
    rules for placing caches. I think you have to have an upgraded
    membership to get them posted on the site. Not sure though.

    Anyway, it's still a blast when you are able to find a really good
    hidden cache!

    Thanks for jogging my memory!

    summer. I also have a cache but it keeps getting destroyed or muggled....

    Anything special required to place a cache? (I realize I can just look
    it up, but wanted to ask someone with experience)

    Thanks,

    Cougar

    I used to work with someone who wa sinto geocaching about 10-15 years ago. They had some app that would export geocache coordinates to google maps. I to ld him of some areas i though would be in the middle of nowhere to hide a cache, and we looked up the area and found there were already 5 caches in
    that wetlands reserve. The boat launches in my area have little tubes tucked up behind the signs.
