Re: just starting

Where are you located?

There might be a local cacher who can meet with you to help out?

Swaggie Help 2017

I just found a Swaggie in the field yesterday but can't see any of the places to Pick up, Drop or Log it. I tried http://geocaching.com.au/swaggie/sw0640 and a few other links but can't find anything. I have also looked under My Cacher Space / My Account and can't see any Swaggie stuff either. Pleas...

Basically, I have build a Cryptex out of PVC and DWV pipe I scavenged from here in Australia (Wollongong actually) and made a video & workbook you can follow to b...

Re: Your First Cache

I had spent the weekend in Melbourne with a friend who had managed to somehow addict me to geocaching without even showing me a real geocache.
