Tip of the Day 8/6:Look before you touch at GZ

In our first Find It Friday tip,we’d like to give you a clue about what to do when you get to Ground Zero (GZ,or the spot that your GPSr’s coordinates exactly match the coordinates of the cache listing).

Before you touch anything,look around very carefully. Do you see anything out of place? Look for a pile of sticks that seems to have fallen unnaturally. Look for a pile of rocks that seems odd. Look for holes that would make good hiding spots and try to look into or through them.

Look up,look down. Geocaches are rarely found at eye level. Look at every level —under benches in a park,in a hole in a tree,or even up a tree. Use a pocket mirror to look under things you can’t see so well.

Make it fun for the kids. If you have little kids with you,spark their imagination and let them pretend they’re giraffes for the high spots or mice for the low ones or snakes for caches in holes. Maybe the log you write online will relate the animal your kids (or you,we’re not judging!) pretended to be when you found it.
