Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. (description taken from The Geocaching Guide)

I started geocaching with two friends, DebsK and DebsT in the summer of 2003. We've had quite a few adventures along the way, not to mention getting lost a lot of the time. Matt and Ian have been known to geocache in the past, but are currently in retirement - probably until the weather gets better, or we discover more geocaches in close proximity to pubs.

On Sunday 9th November 2003, DebsT and I released a new travel bug called Matilda into the wild at Foredown Pond, our eleventh successfully-found cache.

What's inside?! June 2003

Time to relax and take in the amazing view of the downs. DebsK and Ian relax on the Chattri. The chattri was built to commemorate the Indian Soldiers killed during the first world war at the location of their training camp in the South Downs.

Matt finds the cache at Lullington church. Bit of a giveaway to its hiding place this one... Aug 2003
