Well, the kids and I have been regularly Geocaching over the last 1 1/2 years. We take our time during our strolls to enjoy the wonderful scenery and wildlife, and have now logged in 37 finds (and 3 DNFs). (I guess that's not a lot of finds in 1 1/2 years, but we're working on it! )

My oldest son (10) has asked about placing our OWN cache for others to find. (I think we should work on a signature item first, but I've been out-voted! ) I know that placing a cache should be done in a plastic or metal container on public land in a safe area, contain a log and pencil and information on Geocaching, have some initial "treasures", and be listed on www.geocaching.com, but what other things should we know about doing this?
