I carry a small LED torch, assorted geocoins & a multi tool card & thats just for day to day travels. When caching you can add a bum pack full of swaps, digital camera, binoculars, pda mobile phone & of course GPSr.

We were newbie cachers less than 2 years ago but didn't know about the forums then. Forunately we found out what we needed from the FAQ pages & a couple of local cachers.

We use a Garmin GPS60 basic model which has mapsource software, USB upload, we also have a DC power cable for trips & windshield mount. which has a dedicated geocaching mode but is cheaper than the 60csx but does not have maping software. But still an excellent entry level GPSr.
