How is the rally this year? I haven't been there in a few years, not since grandparents moved away from Piedmont.
I recently discovered geocaching. I've known of it for a while but never partook. Anyway, I made a Beckerhead trackable. If you want to follow it, go to geocaching.com and search for the trackable TB4Y4J8. I placed it in a cache while riding my Triumph at the Sturgis Bike Rally today.

Nice. I love geocaching, but go in spirts. They'll be a couple months that I'm out almost everyday. Then a couple months nothing. I'll keep an eye on your patch. If it makes it near Florida, I'll try and track it down.
I have been a Geocacher since 2008. I recently discovered Becker knives. I actually ordered my first Becker last Wednesday, a BK11. Geocaching is a great activity that Beckerheads should not overlook!
i invented geocaching
I am a big fan of Geocaching as well although I honesty haven't gone in quite some time. It is very popular in my area (Clearwater, Seminole, St Pete). I just took my daughter to a big local city park. (Walsingham park) where there has to be over 20 throughout it.
It is a fun way to get out and see nature as well as visit some pretty cool locations that you may never have known about. Next time I go I will take my 11 and 14 for some pics. If its a more rugged area it will be the 7 and/or the 10
Tried, but never find anything. When you get close, the apps go screwy.
I was geocaching before anyone knew what it was. I was using a $100,000 single frequency, 7 channel gps with a geodetic antenna, in the back of a pickup truck. It was brutal. It was work then.
It's a bunch of fun now.
I'm not military in any way and I think I got it Chameleon... Even if I didn't I chuckled.
This is what we need more of. Sprinkle in some Becker caches similar to the ESEE caches and we'll be golden
The wife and I love geocaching. We haven't done it in a little while, but we have our own signature items and a cache of our own that we maintain.
I am a surveyor, so we used them to establish positions on the Earth to the sub centimeter level, so the hand held units were pretty much useless for our needs. What I jokingly referred to as "geocaching" was really a crude way to locate old benchmarks. I would scale a position of a needed mark from a USGS quad sheet and convert it to NAD 83 values and try to use my unit to find the mark, well, more to just get close enough to help me find it. That old unit was in the back of my truck because it took a car battery to power it and it travelled in a huge Pelican case. Since SA was still on then, with it's distortion set to "who knows what" on any given day, it made finding those marks easier, but not easy.
So the running joke around my fellow surveyors, whenever geocaching was brought up, would be that I was doing it before anyone called it geocaching.
Funny thing is I really do like geocaching. I thought to OP's Becker "trackable" travel bug is a great idea. I may have to plant a few Becker patches myself.
Take a 9.... Bust a cap... Wait... The other 9.... Bk9
And after the foray.... Ahhhhhhh
