Who am I?

My real name is Elin Carlson, & I’m a professional singer. You can see more about that here on my website.

I’ve been geocaching since Memorial Day weekend, 2003, and have found over 3,000 caches each year since! It’s still fun and fascinating! You can link to my geocaching profile by clicking on my stat bar to the right to see my milestones and the states and countries in which I’ve found caches.

I use a Garmin Geko 201 (my second one, since I wore one out!) and a Garmin Map60CSX (courtesy f0t0m0m), and the geocaching.com app on my iPhone. I have Mac computers with MacCaching and MacGPSConnect for uploads. I also use the cool nav system in my Toyota Prius.

Thank you very much for the very nice compliment about my blogs. I took your suggestion and added the email subscription which is all ready for public consumption. Have a great one, you have some very pretty terrain out there to go caching in would love to hear more about what you encounter in contrast to what we have here in North Carolina.

Type at you soon,

I’m having a great time looking at all of the photos. You’ve been to some of the same spots that I’ve visited in the past…Alas, it was prior to my recent discovery of Geocaching. I spend a total of seven years in 29 Palms, and I kick myself now over the large amount of caches in the JT Monument, and surrounding areas.

I look forward to your next post!

I am very new, as in weeks new to geocaching. I need a connection with someone who could guide me in a few first finds….just bought a gps unit Garmin Etrex Legend (cheap, but from what I have read reliable) and am not sure how to use it to find geocache’s. I don’t want to give this up before I begin. Any suggestions as to how to get started with a club, or perhaps I could tag along on one of your adventures…yeah sounds crazy huh. Let me know of any suggestions you might have, please.

Hi Elin,
I’m writing an article on geocaching for a local sport & fitness magazine. I came across your blog and would love to talk to you about your passion/hobby/sport! Can you just contact me directly at my email address and we can go from there?

Thanks!

Hi, Blaklee!
The best thing to do is find a local event where you can meet other cachers. They’ll help you learn how to use your GPSr and how to find caches! The events are listed on geocaching.com – if you are in So Cal, of course you can come along with me! Let me know if you have more questions….
