Hi,
I've heard and read about geocaching for years and I'm finally ready to jump in. I just purchased my GPS unit and I am looking for someone within a 50 mile radius of Oshkosh to help me thru my first few finds before I try a solo find. Once I get a dozen or so finds, I'd like to set a few and have a couple of spots in mind.

Also, if anyone nearby has done, or is interested in Benchmarking, please contact me. That sounds very interesting.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Welcome aboard. Rsplash is right - there are plenty of decent caches in Oshkosh that offer quite a variety. I'm 20 miles west in Berlin, but pass through every day going to/from work.

Thanks CodeJunkie!

Rsplash...I will certainly hit GC22NTD

It's funny, I was telling my 9 year old son about geocaching and started to explain it to him. All of a sudden he cuts me of and says "I know where the is a geocache" I said, really? where?

He then tells me about one he and some class mates found walking the health trail around his school in Omro. He said it was white with a red top.

I'm going to look it up today and he is going to show me tomorrow after school.

I know it's cheating, but it's a start!

There's a series around the school in Omro. Originally placed by RSplash and adopted by Jstajlr. I've only done a couple, so far but they've been fun.

Any activity you can do with your kids is awesome though.

I'm working in our Oshkosh office this week Monday - Wednesday and probably caching during the lunchtime. I'm not sure what your schedule is, but let me know if that works into your schedule and we can meet up someplace.

Hey Rsplash...you get around! I see you already know about the Omro fitness trail. That area was where I was thinking of setting one when I got to that point.

Anyway, I downloaded the info for the two you mentioned above and a couple in Omro.

Let the fun begin!

Lunch would work perfect. Tuesday or Wednesday, either one.

I'm near New York and Main, but could meet you anywhere in town and can get away anytime from 10:30 until 1:30. Whatever works for you.
