New to the site and to caching. I have a bit of an understanding with Geocaching.com but with this site I am lost.
I am trying to find geocaches for my area/map/ pick caches/download caches to my Garmin etc and with so many links and areas to look at on the home page I am barely Snorkel above water.
What link should I be looking at to find the caches?

Thanks,

Go to www.geocaching.com/seek/ enter your Postal Code and the caches nearest the location will be shown.

Depending on your GPS unit, you may be able to download them directly to the GPS receiver, or you may have to enter the coordinates manually.

Start with lower difficulty/terrain caches to get the hang of it.

Upload a lot of caches at one time to your GPS is a much larger topic.
There is lots of information on Geocaching.com .

Thanks Canadianbacon I guess I am not clear. Can I get geo cache sites off of BCgeocaching and upload it to my GPS. I see names with caches they have found or do they place this on this site after they have found the cache on the other web page as you mentioned?

Thanks agian

We do not list geocaches, we have a simple search here, but in the end you will end up on geocaching.com for the details of a cache.
