Well, allow me to introduce myself. My caching handle is gundark2000 on all of the other caching sites (except the Garmin site)
I started caching in May of 2010.
I first heard about caching years ago in a news report. Inside I was thinking "hmm.. kinda cool." Outside I was saying to my wife "..this guy's got too much time on his hands..." Then I soon forgot about it. I heard about it again some time later and forgot about it just as quick. I didn't own a GPS and didn't plan on buying one because I didn't have a use for one. I went and bought a TOMTOM one 130 for work at the end of 2009 and remembered the geocaching a few months later. I had no intent on doing it at the time, I was just curious to see if there were any in the area. GC.com was the first site that I had found but I couldn't do a search without becomeing a member so, thinking to myself "..it's free, what do I have to lose.." and made a profile. I just threw in the name I had been useing for everything online since '99 to complete the sign up so there was no thought process in my caching handle.
When I did the search, I found that there was one less than 1/10th of a mile from my house so I went to look for it. After I found it I was hooked.
