Basic Geocaching Class

I am putting together a small "Geocaching for Dummies" Class this Friday at 5pm. We will be meeting up at the start of the bike trail at the Osage Center. I know a lot of people that don't know what Geocaching is so I'm going to take a few hours and teach people about Geocaching. If anyone would like to join I would love to have a group to go with me. 

I am planning on doing a few geocache along the Bike Trail in Cape Girardeau. We will be learning how to do the following:

-finding a good cache for you
-how to operate your GPS
-how to read the description and hints to help find the geocache
-supplies you might need for different geocache
-what to do if/when you find the geocache
-how to leave to geocache
-CITO (Cache in Trash Out)
-rules for geocaching
-basic guidelines for geocache
-types of geocache

If you are interested in coming please let me know by messaging me at or by leaving a comment on here. I hope I can get some partakers. See everyone there! 

You will need to have or bring the following:

-water (it may be hot so bring lots of water to hydrate yourself)
-good walking shoes, there will be some walking involved
-if you have a car GPS you are welcome to bring that. I have my iPhone 4 as well as my car GPS.
-a good sense of adventure and a good attitude

I would so be there if I owned a GPS. I'm toying with the idea of getting an iPhone 4 for my birthday next month but I'm still not sure. When I get out of the dark ages and get a GPS will you teach the class again for me??

You don't have to have a GPS to come. You should totally come anyway!
