    In many book stores you can find a book called geocaching for dummies (http://www.dummies.com/WileyCDA/Dumm...764575716.html)

    That is how I learned. THe book is fairly expensive but there is so much on the net that you may be all set just surfing around.

    THese are just a few that geocaching.com has to offer. Also going to an event will be a learning experiance on its own. I was a bit shy at first but the folks here are great and will answer your questions or give you a link to help out. Be prepared for lots of sarcasism. We are all very close here and know each other on a first name basis and many of us have cached togeather. So dont take anything personally and just have fun with us.

    Welcome to the group.

    OBTW, I went to college with some faulkners from Hodgdon.

    My thoughts exactly!

    As Cameooooooooo said . . . ask away. Most folks here can answer any questions you might have . . . and even questions you don't have.

    I have a Skidoo myself for a sled -- Rev 500SS . . . although I ride a Honda Foreman 450S instead of a Bombardier (although I've been told they're very reliable.)

    Last year nearly all of my sled miles were spent in The County . . . and usually I try to get up to the Washburn area at least once in the summer for an extended ATV ride.

    Did you know that a cat purrs at the same rate that a diesel engine idles?

    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.
