DaTexanBoy, welcome to the great addiction. You are in a great area. Those Conway cachers have done a fantastic job in making that area an outstanding geocaching mecca.
Welcome also to the Arkansas Geocachers Association. You won't find any better folks anywhere. They are always friendly, willing, and eager to help in any way. We are glad that you found us.
The Searcy event is Saturday September 25th. Check it out at GC2CZJ9. There actually will be 3 events that weekend. There is a meet & greet type event at the catfish house Friday night(GC2DF47) and immediately following the big event on Saturday there will be a CITO event(GC2ENCC).
Saturday there will be games, prizes, food, and loads of caches to find. And it's absolutely free. We sure hope you can make it.
Again, welcome and hope to see you in Searcy.
What would yall say is a good but affordable handheld GPS device to start out with? I'm prior military and only used thewonderful compass that was issued to us, and I was wanting to get a good GPS.
Welcome! Sorry about being late to the party~
Where do you work?
