Amber, Why don't you go to http://www.geocaching.com and read all about our sport. I imagine you will want to get involved and this is as good a time as any. You could get a UserId and hide the cache yourself. The web site explains all about it, gives you instructions on setting up a UserId and has tips and guidelines for hiding caches.
If you set it up yourself, then each time someone finds it you will get an email with their log entry. It's really exciting. There are a host of people on this board ready and eager to help. Think about it, and best wishes.
