We'll spend some time indoors going over the basics and then get out on the library grounds to test your newly acquired skills. Bring your GPS units. And if you have one, bring your laptop; we'll have wireless at the library. It might also help if folks can bring some extension cords and power strips.
All are welcome. We hope to have plenty of beginners looking to learn more.
We also hope to have some experienced cachers willing to team up with some new folks to help them around the beginner's course we're setting up at the library. We'd also appreciate experienced cachers bringing GPS units that new folks can borrow out on the course if they don't have one of their own. Please indicate in your Will Attend log if you are willing to help and will have one or more GPS units.
Our agenda is:
- Brief history of geocaching
- Explanation of cache types and a few useful terms
- Introduction to GPS and satellite technology
- The cache page at geocaching.com
- The beginner's geocaching course
- Geocaching account and logging your caches
Regular cachers: Spread the work among your friends, family, and coworkers. Let us do the work of creating new caching friends for you.
Hope to see you there.
