Tip of the Day 8/27:Stay on the trail!

In our Find It Friday tip,we’d like to give you a clue about what to do when searching for a cache.

The best piece of geocaching advice we’ve ever received,the one we try to remember and curse ourselves when we ignore is simply this:Stay on the trail as long as possible. We’ve bushwhacked through 5-foot high fields of grass and nettles,we’ve scratched our legs and arms on undergrowth and brambles,we’ve fallen in holes we shouldn’t have and twisted our ankles. But we would not have gone through all this if we had abided by the rule more often. And more often than not,when we finally do find the cache,we find a perfectly wonderfully manicured trail not 10 feet from it,that we inevitably take back to the car or off to the next destination.

Chances are good that the path that seems like it’s going in the wrong direction will loop around just in time or lead to a fork or head up a hill. Most caches are placed within a few feet of an trail (and if they aren’t,the cache description should tell you this),so there’s really no need to fight Mother Nature.
