I signed up to the website over 11 years ago and finally logged our first geocache. It was close to a place we wanted to visit anyway and we figured that we give it a try. The cache was loated maybe 40 feet off the main walking trail and it took me a while to locate it sitting in bottom of a palm tree.
We were pretty unprepared and didnt have a pen to sign the the log but we did take one of the items inside and left something from New York. We hope to bring the item we took either to a cache in NY or somewhere on the way. Seems to be a nice motivation to check out interesting spots.
