Hello, all! I am new here but not new to geocaching. I went letterboxing with my mom when I was a teenager and I transitioned to geocaching once that became available. It is now something that I do with my kiddos. I recently discovered The Maryland Geocaching
Society and had to join. I look forward to chatting and caching with you all!

Join us for some summer fun in Mt Airy on July 20th! We will host a potluck picnic and BBQ. There will be a huge silent auction with tons of coins, trackables and swag to bid on. Come on out, get some good food and get that coin or trackable you always wanted while helping to raise money for CAM. And of course, we will have another Tag-A-Palooza!

Everybody is welcome, especially new folks and beginners! There will be new caches in the park to find!

Hello,

Ok. So I've been living under a rock for the last 15-20 years that geocashing has been around. :smt005 Two days ago, a FB friend shared a post and I inquired. So here I am. I was happy I stumbled across MGS. Thanks for having me. Excited to get started.

Welcome StarlingGirl! There is something for everyone in geocaching whether you like city caching, puzzles, earth science or the old fashioned favorite, a hike in the woods. It is easy to get started all by yourself with an app on your phone or a dedicated GPS. To get really involved, let us know if you have a question or better yet, check out the calendar of events on our main page and come join one of the events to meet and learn about our hobby one on one. See you around!

Hi there all! I am new here and actually realized I was already a member from before when I went to join on Saturday after the Cache-Advance Zoom meet on Friday. I only moved to Elkton, Maryland last year but I had forgotten I'd joined the forum before. :lol: I consider myself pretty new to caching. I only joined Geocaching.com in 2014 and I currently have about 160-ish finds, but I am very excited about geocaching and it's become one of my favorite things to do outside. I would LOVE to make new friends here -local or not- who I can cache with! Other activities I enjoy are drawing, collecting geocoins, trackables and pathtags, among other things. If anyone is in the Elkton area or around it and has a vehicle and wants to cache with a friend, hit me up! I would love to join in, but currently don't have a car, so I have been walking to get to closer caches since I moved.

Hi, I’m sure we’ve met on the caching trails! My spouse, Found4Life, and I, Seeker4life, started caching with my Navy son’s GPSr in 2009. Had read about it, but didn’t know any geocachers at the time. Although we’re in Delaware, we had many Maryland cachers suggest we’d like CAM caches, so we eventually tried a CAM challenge and fell in love! I’m pretty sure I am a member. Thanks for such a great statewide caching program.

Hi everyone :D

Don't know how active this board is but I am excited to be here and to become more active in geocaching! I cache with my kiddos (and sometimes the hubs if I can bribe him) for the most part.

I upgraded to a premium membership to get access to the tons of caches that are in my area and have been trying to hit at least one a week! Unfortunately I'm rubbish at solving the puzzle ones (which is actually how I stumbled upon this group) but they seem to be the most common near by 8O!

Anywhoo ... excited to be hear and would love recommendations on how to best improve my geo puzzle solving skills.

Geocaching is definitely more social than it appears at first. I would definitely get to some events, there are a number of them that occur monthly around the state, probably one in your area. There you will meet lots of people willing to help with different puzzles. Going to events will definitely help.

The MGS summer picnic is coming up soon... MGS 2021 Summer Picnic.

I would also check out Facebook for the Maryland Geocaching Society group and there are a puzzle solving group or two on Facebook as well. There are a couple of "puzzle a day" groups which can help build your skills.

And this book will be a great help too: http://www.howtopuzzlecache.com/
I suggest getting the spiral bound version since it will lay flat which makes it easier to refer to when working on puzzles.

GC9CMCK ....I waited a whole week for this cache page to be published! I may be a new geocacher but I'm a crafty fox and I learn fast, hopefully someone in the MDGPS is FTF on my newest cache! LMK what you think if you do feel free to message me about concepts and designs you like cause I'm always in need of inspiration! Happy caching my geofam!

Thanks for this link! I've added it to my calendar and hopefully will have the day off to attend.

I don't have FB but I was able to get some links from those pages and have had greater success in solving some of the puzzle caches! I also learned its way easier to do some of them at home and then it will save the solved coordinates so I can cache them later instead of trying to solve something on my phone :P

Very useful and helpful links! Thank you again @littleblkdog

Been a duffer since 2006, but my wife and I gave each other premium memberships for our July anniversary, and have a 26 day streak going now. Fortunately she loooves doing puzzles and has a near endless supply to enjoy now! Thanks to all the clever folks coming up with challenges! I have one cache out so far, but am plotting a few more. Looking forward to fun for many years!

Just joined today but have been actively caching for a couple of years. I have a few caches out - mostly in Montgomery County which is my main locus of operations although I have also cached a bit in PG and Howard mostly but other counties as well. if you find my caches, let me know if you enjoy them or any issues you encounter - I appreciate the feedback and will do my best to correct any issues. Hope to see you on the trails and roads.
