    Default New to otbers, GPS

    I have two friends that would like to get into geocaching, yet can't afford a fancy GPS. Do any of have an old one that you could part with, cheaply?

    I wanted a loaner/extra and picked up a yellow Etrex for less than $50 on Ebay. Works fine.

    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.

    I saw a few on the Wal mart site that were as low as $85.

    eBay is a good place to look. You have to get into it a little to know when to bid on things. I have gotten things like brand new DVDs of as little as a dollar. There are times when things go cheap, like during the Super bowl. If you bid on things in the low flow times like that you will get a better deal.

    Yahoo has an auction site. As well as many others. Look around. Also try some of the pawn shops. I have seen them in there too.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    There is also a sale thread on the national Forums of GC.com......I haven't read through it but it might be worth a look.
