    Default New Guy in Farmington

    Hi everyone, names Ryan. Im living in Farmington right now, and just trying to get into the geocaching game. Give me something to do driving around in my jeeps, and is very tempting to put a cache or 2 out in some of my jeeping spots.

    Welcome to the addiction and do this site! Take a look around and see what's here. There is a geocaching event in Hampden this Saturday, you should check it out.

    Don't rush to hide a cache, find a few and see what you think of the game and gain some ideas before taking that step.

    Welcome, there's definitely quite a few 4x4 caches around, and a few more never hurt! (I had a 99xj, may it RIP) had to get a truck to move the stupid 4wheeler around... you should've joined up a month sooner, we just had our annual off road cache event.
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    you may have crossed paths with the G-team before then, he has a 89(?) very nicely done XJ lifted, lockers, lefteroverpartsfrommyxj, ect...

    Default Jeep in the mud, oooh baby!

    So Aaron, did those pictures make your heart race?
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    I used to run VW(rail) woods buggies...then a Grand Cherokee LE. Currently have a diesel 4x4 that hopes to be pulling a Rubicon while camping up North. I missed out on some great Jeep club rides up your way because I didn't have the mandatory mounted winch. The Hi-lift isn't good for everything

    There are some great folks on here that would love to get out caching w/you sometime. Don't be shy. It's a great way to get the low down on the game and avoid common mistakes. Not to mention the laughs/memories!
    I'm just nuts about geocaching!!
