For those of you have been thinking about trying to geocache... what are you waiting for! Haven't you been reading about all the fun I've been having?! Better yet, what a great excuse to get out of the house! It's summer people, go enjoy it!
A geocaching membership is FREE. You can buy a premium membership, but my recommendation is to wait until you're hooked and able to understand the extras it comes with. I waited to buy a membership until I had 100 finds.
Even if you don't want to start caching this very moment... you should register for a free account and take a look at how many geocaches are near you. You will be amazed - I promise.
From June 1- 30, 2011, for each new member that is referred to Geocaching.com, Groundspeak will donate $1 to DonorsChoose.org - even if you sign up for a free account! The catch is though... you HAVE to fill out the "Referred by:" section. Oh, and by the way you should fill in that section with "ErikaJean"
If you don't have a GPS, you can use your smart phone! If you want a GPS, you can enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win one of 20 Magellan eXplorist GC GPS units, valued at $150 each!
