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.

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.
