About a year ago I got really into geocaching. I promptly got so busy working on my master’s thesis that I had to put it off, and then completely forgot about it. This summer I re-discovered it, and found out that my girlfriend was really enjoyed it as well. So geocaching is now officially our new hobby. To celebrate this, I purchased an Garmin Oregon 550t GPS for using on our geocaching trips. So far I’ve been really satisfied with it, and it’s really nice to be able to go geocaching in pouring down rain without worrying about damaging the equipment. As soon as possible I’ll write a review of the 550t and post it here.
