Since I first saw Mikal Harts Reverse Geocache Puzzle I knew I needed to build one. My best mate and his wife are avid GeoCachers (is that a word?) and I decided to make a special gift for his 30th birthday. Well, I missed that particular deadline, but never mind, better late than never eh buddy!?

Having seen lots of other people try their hand at it in their own unique interpretations I had a few ideas of my own in mind. At the top of the list I wanted my Geocache to be more flexible than most.

Excellent article RangerBob! Thanks for taking the time to write it.

Geo-caching sounds like a lot of fun. Some of my friends do it but I've never tried it.

Wow, you've brought together a lot of different software features and hardware to make this work. I'm sure people will be able to get something useful from your article even if it's for a different application. I know I'll be looking over how you used the SD card for an upcoming project of mine! The USB power controller chip looks interesting too.

Good show!
