Nik watches Dan cross the finish line, having knocked over several toddlers and elderly women to get this prime spot.

Nik and Dan find a typical regular-sized geocache in Newport, R.I. Geocaching is the most funnest thing ever.


We use the Garmin Forerunner 405 to find geocaches. It's so much fun that it's worth the $300 for that alone. Not really. But it's still fun.
