GeoCraig’s Caching Info

Profile for GeoCraig

I have been geocaching since May 2001. I found a few caches, then stopped caching for about a year. Because my life was so busy, I decided that I needed an active hobby and to start caching again. And life has been a little more interesting since then.

To contact me directly, e-mail me at coakford@yahoo.com.

Here is a list of what I use while geocaching:

Magellan eXplorist 710– My fourth GPS unit.  I also have a Magellan Triton 2000, but I’m not comfortable using it for geocaching yet.  As a backup I have a eXplorist 500.

Geocaching Swiss Army Knife (GSAK) A geocache waypoint management program

I use the gc.com Geocaching iPhone app to log finds in the field.

Mircosoft Streets & Trips ’06 I download my found and yet to be found caches from GSAK into S&T. If helps me to see where I’ve been and where I need to go. I also up National Geographic’s TOPO! California State Series when hiking for caches

I usually have a camera along–either my small Canon point-and-shoot or my Nikon D40. I’ve learned that you can poke around almost anywhere without drawing any attention if you have a nice camera in your hand.

The map on the heading banner is the Backbone Trail in the Santa Monica Mountains. I joined a NPS-sponsored group and hiked the entire trail during 2006-07.

    You’re pictures are amazing. Congrats on the 5000th. I just did my 500th this weekend. Not quite as impressive I know, but I have a 4 year old and a 9 month old so it’s a little harder to get out. Saw that you had cached in Maine. Was it just Bar Harbor that you had been? Just curious as that’s only about 45 minutes from Bangor where I am.
