New Guy from Russellville
Let me introduce myself, I am Zac Cooney, a 2nd year student at Arkansas Tech University. I live on campus in the lovely city of Russellville, but my permenant residence is in Northern Virginia.
I had heard of geocaching before, but never really committed to trying it out till a couple days ago. I was gathering some information for a Labor Day weekend hike (im a big hiking nut) when I rediscovered the hobby. Digging a little deeper, I found this site.
As far as gear goes, I bought a Garmin GPS 40 and a Maggellin GPS 300 on ebay for $30 each. Hopefully they arrive before Friday so I can start caching.
I am still lacking a decent map though, does anyone know of a store I can find a map at? I think I shall try the National Park Admin building here in Russellville tomorrow.
Can't wait to hit the trails this weekend, maybe i'll see a few of y'all.
