A Must Read



Take a moment to reflect on what got you interested in gps stash
hunting.

Was it the simplicity?
Was it the adventure?
Was it that there were no great lists of rules?

Thats what got me interested, and I know that was what got most of
you interested too.

Search for the location, take something, place something, then set
your own stashes (or caches)

Keep it simple and it will grow beyond expectations.

Place lots of rules and it will wither up and die.

Thats my honest observation.
