    :unsure: shoulda worked on the name

    For those infamiliar with geocaching go Here and register
    read about it , buy an App fpr your phone or a GPS and get out there and start having fun it is an epic way of getting yourself and your family out in the wide open.

    One of the great joys ( and there are many) is setting up your own cache for others to find and it shows you how to do this here.

    Now the idea is we set up a series of Disney Secrets Caches and alot each of them a number

    my idea would be

    wisneysecrets.com #1 - (insert rough area of cache location)

    etc

    These could well extend around the globe and if you are on holiday you could specifically go and try and find a cache started by one of our members.

    Right first things first I think what we should do is start by asking anyone genuinely interested in setting a cache to sign up below and I shall give everyone a number - best you are registered and happy with caching before we get started and there is no time limit on this as I see no reason on earth why this cannot carry on.

    I also have other ideas involving a wdisneysecrets geocoins ;)

    Gee I wonder if I tried yours if it would even show up on my screen.

    Could just imagine the distance to the first point:

    go 2650 miles @ 85 degrees azmith.:tongue:

    Very true SW....may have to do just that.

    Would we host it here or on a geocaching site so the public could see it?

    You have to be able to maintain any cache that you set out there. Check on it now and again to make sure it's not full of water or anything.

    There is no rush - I do think people should certainly be into geocaching before they get started on the hiding though :thumbsup:
