The ORANGE book is MUCH better!! 11 avril 2005
Par FOX - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This yellow book has nothing in it you can't figure out yourself.

The Orange "THE COMPLETE IDIOTS GUIDE TO GEOCACHING" is MUCH MUCH better! Everything from helpfull hints that even experienced geocachers can use, to the complete history of geocaching, how it started, and EVERYTHING you want to know about Latitude and Longitude and all the formats it is measured with and how they came about.

The other book is MUCH better than this one!

Outstanding 14 novembre 2005
Par Marjorie Roswell - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a super book. Concise, informative, fun, very well-edited, and honest (about the value of good map and compass skills, in addition to learning to use the GPS, for instance). I went from 0 - 60 in a few days. Bought the book a few weeks ago at lunch, and I've been geocaching ever since.

The book includes great websites links to resources such as waterproof logboks, and how to get a MapQuest map based on a latitude and longitude. (MapQuest has changed their method since the book was published, but I was able to find it easily, knowing it was possible.)

I recommend consulting his equipment and gear list. It does get dark, you will get stabbed by thorns, or sticks, you'll get hungry and thirsty... It sounds obvious, but in the rush of trying to find the nearest cache, it's easy to forget to bring such helpful items as a flashlight, a first aid kit, extra batteries, etc.

The book also includes a helpful list of U.S. geocaching clubs by state. I look forward to meeting other geocachers!

Kudos to the Dummies series (again) and to the author, for a terrific book.

Beginner and intermediate geocachers will like this book. 6 janvier 2008
Par Katherine Katsenis - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This text is divided into the following parts: Part 1 Getting Ready to Geocach, part 2: Let's Go Geacaching, Part 3 Advanced Geocaching and Part 4 The Part of Tens.

THe first part is focused on picking a GPS receiver and using it along with maps. The section on maps, I found particularly usefu. This information is not as easy as this book is to find out about on the premier web page for Geocaching

[...] Also, if you are not experienced with using maps, this text give you a nice overview about it.

The second part has information that is really readily available at the website above. The advantage to this book though, is that it is all laid out in a nice order and you do not have to sort through information piecemeal like you may have to do on geocaching websites.

The third part I found helpful as it pertains to more subtle aspects and/or advaced parts of geocaching such as benchmarks and there is a nice section on how to use geocaching with your students (if you are a teacher!).

The fourth part provides a nice list of websites, many of which I never found on my own just "browsing", and there is an annotated list of geocaching programs.

Overall, even if you have geocached already, this book will give you background information and resources that you likely do not already know about. I particularly enjoyed the "tips" on geocahing etiquette which I may not have understood without this book.

A useful beginner's resource, but in dire need of a revision. 2 août 2011
Par Michael Jandrok - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If you're reading this review and researching this title, then chances are that you have become interested in the sport of geocaching. At it's core, geocaching is a worldwide treasure hunt on steroids, with hidden goodies to be found literally all over the world. I won't spend much time explaining the basic concept. If you've been curious enough to get this far, then you've at least absorbed the general idea. If not, then geocaching dot com should be the next website that you visit.

And truthfully, most all of the knowledge that you need to get started in the sport can be found right at the source website. They have a great deal of information that is well organized and accessible, and it's WAY fresher than this particular book on the subject.

Please understand that I mean no disrespect to the author or to the text itself. It was written in 2004, when geocaching was only a few years old and not nearly as popular as it is now, so it's only natural that a lot of the information that can be found in these pages is dated. For example, the author states early on that there are over 91,000 active caches hidden all over the world. In 2011, that number has jumped to over 1.4 million. PDA's and Palm Pilots? Relics of the past, replaced by smart phones and tablets, the capabilities of which you NEED to know about.

There is some good introductory information here on how to use a GPS unit, and I liked the section on benchmarking, but again these are things that you can easily research elsewhere. In short, it's a slightly useful book that is in real need of a revised edition. I checked out my review copy at my local library, and I would suggest that you do the same if you're really interested in it as a possible resource. It's definitely not worth spending money on as there are just too many other current sources out there to use.

A little dated for 2011. 24 mars 2011
Par Skypacer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book is useful to the first-time geocacher and contains information that will be usefult to them. However, the book came out in 2004 and is a little dated for today's cacher. For example, it says that the GC codes used to identify geocaches are 6-characters long. They were in 2004, but by 2011 so many caches have been placed that the code has expanded to 7 characters. Also, the focus on electronic devices include only PDAs and Pocket PCs. There is absolutly no information on Smart Phones. I think it's about time for the author to come out with a revision for this book.
