    I found one in Leam yesterday. I also looked for one near Coventry train station but I couldn't find it.

    Anyone else found a trackable tag before? I found a keyring that says to take it and place it in another cache somewhere. It's got a serial number on it.

    I used to cache, but the lack of car made it fairly limiting when I lived with my parents (Shropshire!).

    I'm going on an Easter Egg Hunt today and I'm taking my GPS with me cos I believe there may be a couple of caches out there.

    Where are you? We should so meet up and go No-one here really likes the outdoors except me (I'm in Coventry, so not many fields, and lots of muggles!).

    I used to quite alot, and had a well known local cache set up.
    However a while back my dog destroyed by GPS, like over a year, havn't had the funds to purchase a new one, and my own cache dissappeared.
    Tempted to look at spending July EMA bonus on a new GPS so get into it over summer as i will probably be bored a lot of the time with some of my best mates working as apprentices.

    got bored and decided to try this yesterday and thought it was fun and ended up being joint first to find a brand new cache that went live lol had another go today and and found two more caches nearby my house...

    So far it seems fun actually, and a good reason to get me out the house and on my bike to go find the others nearby my house

    The OH and I stumbled across this the other day when looking for campsites for the summer. We are about to go off and try our first attempts at finding some caches locally.

    So basically we tap in the coordinates listed on the site then follow the GPS to the location and pickup a box with a coin in it and it's next location? Amirite?

    EDIT: Figured it. I can actually see one from my house :p:
