For my geocache, I went out to More Mesa in Santa Barbara. This Mesa is a large section of coastal open space, and has breathtaking views of the oceans and mountains. I found the caches I would look for on geocaching.com. I would highly recommended making an account there; it's free, and allows you to access all sorts of info on the various caches. You can see who has been there, and what comments they've posted about the condition of the cache, etc.

I have a Garmin Oregon 450t, and I was able to load geocache information directly from geocacheing.com to my handheld device! Very cool!

|Results: We found green pins, couldn't find red pins, and yellow are general information.|
Over, this was a very fun experiment! Next time I would like to bring my trinkets to leave in caches, and also I will bring a camera and a notebook. I need to take more comprehensive notes on cache condition and contents to post it here. Also, I learned a lot about how to property use my GPS device for geocaching. It has a lot to offer, but is very complicated!
