I'll tell my story, and you can follow suit, if you'd like to share. I was deployed to Iraq in 2007, I ordered a Garmin GPSmap 60cx to use in theater. I saw there was a mode called 'geocaching' and had no idea what it was at all. From my research and going to geocaching.com, it looked like a fun way to be taken off the regular trail. As it was, there was one geocache on my base in Ramadi, Iraq. I set up my GPSr and went off to find it. BAM! There it was! I got back home I the states. While I don't geocache often, I do every now and then. Also, my daughter loves to go 'treasure hunting' with me. I've only logged 46 finds thus far, but I do have finds logged in places many people just cannot go; Afghanistan, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Kuwait... Also I have one logged in Germany, as well as several in the US. Also, I'm still working with the same GPSr, and would like to get into using that as a backup and using map and compass as primary navigation. ...sent from my mind, using telepathy!
