==How to find Geocaches==
To find a geocache, visit the Geocaching website. Sign up for a free account, selecting a desired handle(user name). On the main page, enter a desired location, either using an address, town, zip code, or your latitude and longitude. Pick one of the caches from the search results to visit the geocache page. Read the geocache description page and enter the geocache coordinates into your GPS. Then you go to those coordinates and look for the hidden geocache (sometimes there are hints that may help). When you find the geocache, write your geocaching name, the date, and any comments in the logbook or logsheet inside (depending on available space). Rehide the geocache exactly as you found it. Once at home, log into the Geocaching site and go back to that geocache page. Click on "Log your visit" in the upper right. Select the appropriate options for the type of log and date, then type in a message. Once you are finished, click on "Submit" at the bottom of the page.
