Geocachers/Geocaching
« on: 25.03.2018, 22:31:26 »

Are any other furs interested in geocaching? I see there is a cache on the bridge near the Estrel hotel and some others nearby that I hope to find.

I haven't gone Geocaching myself. But I had a friend who talked about it and I found it interesting, I never had the time, or really knew how to start. It was just something I would think about from time to time. I would be down to see what's up with it first hand though!

That is still alive?
 I did it a few years ago, it was fun but I stopped after a while.

oh yeah, it is still a big thing in the US.
If you don't mind me asking, why did you get out of that hobby?

Just lazyness and not enough time anymore. I'm a computer nerd so I'm not really the kinda guy to stumble through forests and stuff xP
I also believe they started charging for some things?

Ohhhh that's no good. That sucks too because I just saw someone with the window sticker on their car in the town I live in. If I have to pay to go look for things, then no way.

I don't remember much anymore ^^'

They do have a "Premium Membership" feature that they charge for but you don't have to use it. I used the basic free membership for years. They also have an official app that costs money but there are other apps that are free.

I'd recommend to anyone wanting to start that the best way is to get a free account at geocaching.com then download the free app called C:GEO to your smartphone.

Awesome, thanks for the tip. I will try getting that once I free up some space on my phone.
