Oregon Geocoin thrills Garmin user who started geocaching, quit smoking



Ever since we unveiled our next-generation outdoor handhelds, Garmin bloggers (and our secret
geocaching stashers) have been placing limited-edition Oregon
and Colorado geocoins in caches across the U.S. and around the world. A message inserted with every stashed coin asks the discoverer to share the story behind the search. And after more than two years in hiding, many of these treasures are still out there just waiting to be
found!! And with Garmin’s touchscreen Oregon and Dakota
units, that hunt is even easier thanks to paperless caching. So enjoy this story from Kent E. about his successful search, check out our learning center video about geocaching with an Oregon handheld and then click on the respective links for
interactive demos (Oregon and Dakota) and feature-specific tutorials (Oregon and Dakota).

I woke up this morning intent on finding/logging a few geocaches in my area. I made a quick pit-stop at a rest area along I-5 S. There I found a cache with an assortment of trackables. I’m sure they were placed here as a quick pick up for anyone leaving to go out of town. I couldn’t resist the Silver Garmin geocoin. I had to retrieve it and put it somewhere special. After owning my first GPS since Christmas ’09, I have become a geocache addict. My Garmin has never let me down, and feels like it is indestructible. With the help from my friends/family, 2010 is the year I quit smoking cigarettes. Most of the credit goes to my eTrex. How could I possibly smoke a cigarette in some of the beautiful places this GPS has taken me. Garmin changed my life. CITO! Hike the Cascades!!
