I did register on geocaching.com. I also had my husband build a "basement" for my LFL which is basically a shelf on which to place the geocache box.
I went yesterday to look for a geocache in my nearby park, but, alas, I couldn't find it.
Did you buy supplies from geocaching.com, or did you make your own? Did you buy a premium membership, or are you using their free basic membership?
I love the journal entry you got right away! I could certainly use this as a way to bring more individuals to my LFL. My LFL is a portal for the game Ingress.
Do you think I should use a larger geocache box which could hold more materials, or a smaller box which would seem to be more "hidden"? Did you put "swag" in your box, or do you consider your books to be the geocaching "swag"?
