Tip of the Day 7/26:Caching Alone? Take These Precautions

We don’t recommend caching by yourself in the deep woods because there are so many nasty things that can happen. But if you must go solo,take these precautions:

  • Create a waypoint on your GPSr designating where you parked so you can find your way home. Ever seen Blair Witch Project? ‘Nuff said.
  • Leave a copy of the cache’s information page,with the coordinates highlighted,in your car in case someone has to find you later.
  • Bring your cell phone! We heard a story about how the Geocaching.com forum once banded together to send a helicopter out to an injured and stranded cacher. Luckily,he had his cell phone and could call for help.
