    What kind of GPS unit are you using, John? This looks very intriguing. We used to do ham radio t-hunts where you triangulate radio signals, but this looks a lot more popular (a lot more to find!).

    OMG, this sounds so bloody cool. I'm going to have to look into this some more.

    Hmm, Father's Day is coming up, and a GPS unit sounds like an excellent gift.

    You hit the jackpot, Manny, Father's Day! Except, I've got my husband in mind.

    But here's the thing: I read their thread on what kind of GPS to buy, and basically, ended up more confused than anything else. Does anyone have any tips? What feature do you find yourself using the most, you geocachers?

    It can be from lil' Hepcat, Hep-San. You know, a GPS unit and a handmade, colored card. (Hey, that's what I'll probably be getting my dad. )

    I'll let you know what we come up with re: the units.

    For example, I would think having a map would be of utmost importance, but not all models come with that.

    This sounds like a lot of fun..especially the trinket swapping. I imagine it is more enjoyable if you do it with a group of friends.

    I agree, Burnt.

    John, what sort of trinkets have you been leaving?

    Hepcat, I use a Garmin eTrex Legend, which has the built-in map setup. It's a nice little handheld unit, and is waterproof (for use when boating), small, and cheap (it was $167 on-line).

    Manny, some people just leave what they've found at other caches, and some people leave "signature items". For example, there's a team around here called Team SandDollar, and they leave sand dollars in the caches they find. Some people leave "sig cards", which are like business cards, usually laminated so they withstand water, which have info about you or your team. E-mail address, a picture, etc.

    This looks like so much fun! There are so many caches in my town! Woohoo!
