Tip of the Day 7/27:Difficulty/Terrain ratings are your friends

Those pesky star system ratings that tell you difficulty and terrain for each cache aren’t just for pocket query sorting! Keep them in mind when you’re actually at Ground Zero (GZ) and you may find the cache right in front of you.

A terrain of 1 means that it’s wheelchair-accessible,so if you’re searching off the path and have tripped over an exposed route,you’re making the hunt too hard.

On the other hand,a difficulty rating of 5 means you need either special training or special equipment. If you’re at the edge of a cliff rooting around in the bushes for this one,it may mean that your hunt will require you to rappel down the cliffside (which requires both training and equipment).

Keeping the ratings in mind help you to not waste time when you’re out for the hunt.
