I though we migt do a Disney bug and try and get it to visit all the parks :D

There's 8 on Box Hill called Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. :lol:

You have to find the Dwarfs and they give you the location of Snow White.

Haven't been since I got into this. I doubt I'll be allowed to roam WDW with my bright yellow Garmin either. Adrian would die of embarassment. :lol:

Geocaching Josh.

A micro is a very small cache and a bug is a little giblet that travels from cache to cache.

how do you tell people where you want these bugs to end up and how do you know when they have?

Dawn

Their progress gets logged at www.geocaching.com so you know what cache the bug is currently in or what cacher has the bug to move on. There will also be info there on where the bug wants to go.

We started using a sat nav then bought a handheld jobbie from e-Bay for about 30

Have been bidding here and there on ebay for a handheld...we used to do this loads when we lived in Virginia and sort of fell out of the habit...would love to get back into it...
