I do the geocaching thing around the area where I live here in Northern Utah. It's a fun way to pass the time and to get out of the house. Last spring I was doing the geocaching from my truck - and I'm planning on hitting the roads/trails again (on the KLR) as soon as it warms up a bit. I'm looking forward to hitting the west desert area out along the Pony Express Route and collecting those caches...

My son and I geocache as well, not on the bike though. It's a great hobby to get you out and about and see new places and things. Were just using a bargain basement eTrex (the yellow one with the black and white screen) and my cellphone. We even did a murder mystery geocache thing that a museum was putting on, it was a lot of fun! Looking forward to getting out again if we ever get spring here.

Actually, geocaching sounds like a lot of fun. Might have to give it a go one of these days.

Cool! I love some of the creative ways that people hide the caches. You look and look and when you finally see it you go oooohhhhh!

Geocaching

My wife and i have been doing it for years. We have done it in mexico, vegas, Alaska, Montana and a few different provinces in Canada. Meaning geo caching.... It was starting to sound dirty! Its so easy from the Iphone now. You can just click the app an find them anywhere vs going to a computer. Great pass time

I wouldn't consider myself an avid geocacher but I will sign them when I happen across them. Kind of a cool way to add something to a ride.

A KLR is not a motorcycle, it is a blank canvas with which to paint the rest of your life.

My one and only experience with geo-caching.

I was the guy "enjoying a cup of coffee". Felt kind of sheepish after all was said and done.
