Hobbies: Geocaching
My primary hobby at present (2012) is geocaching. Geocaching is a sport where you use a hand-held GPS unit to locate containers (caches) hidden in the wilderness or urban settings. The primary web site for geocaching is www.geocaching.com.

 

Another of my YouTube videos on geocaching is: http://youtu.be/yo5uKp3Vlx8.

Many caches require that you visit and gather information from historical landmarks.

Many caches are hidden in the woods or in hard-to-find locations.
This one is barely visible at the base of the bush at left.

Cache containers come in all shapes and sizes.

  Coins aren't the only things you find: There's lots of jewelry and relics.

A modern detector tells you what's in the ground even before you start digging, making it much more productive. You can distinguish coins from junk and one coin from another.
