Tip of the Day 8/18:Don’t leave home without spare batteries

Sometimes we need to do something kinda thoughtless to make us remember never to do it again. Take it from us —bringing spare batteries along with you on each and every caching adventure is not a lesson you want to learn the hard way. If you can find rechargeable batteries for your GPSr,all the more ecologically sound. If not,so be it. But make sure you have fully charged or new batteries in your pack or even in your pocket (they’re small!) if you’re not carrying a pack that day.

There’s nothing that ends a fun day faster than getting hopelessly lost in the woods or even in strange city while caching and not being able to find your way out. Marking your car/hotel/home base as a waypoint will also let you return safely. This,of course,is dependent on you having batteries that work in your GPSr.

Disclaimer:We’re not recommending Duracell over any other brand,but they do work pretty well for us.
