A look at my geocaching gear. It changes a little from time to time but the main parts are constant. We'll look at my "grab and go" basic kit which is suitable for urban caching or when caching from a vehicle. Then we move on to the contents of my hydration pack, this pack holds three litres of water and has 25 litres of storage area for gear. It is a small, light pack suitable for day use. It may be small, but I have a lot of gear stuffed into it.
Some of what I carry may seem excessive, and many geocachers would not routinely carry this much. The gear I carry reflects the environment I operate in. It also includes contingency items, if all goes well I will not need to use them. However if things go wrong I want to have this gear with me, it provides capabilites and options. It may seem a lot to take along, but it is not heavy and I prefer to be as self sufficient as possible. Plan for the best, prepare for the worst.
If you are wondering what this whole Geocaching thing is all about, check out the website. You'll probably find there are caches in your area. Give it a try, but be warned, it can be addictive!
