Tip of the Day 12/3:Puzzle caches —confirm your answer

Find It Friday is taking a turn for the puzzling. We’ve heard from a lot of cachers that they don’t even try puzzle caches because they just don’t know where to start. We’re here to help, as always! We found a great resource on the Geocaching NSW site and Darren Osborne has agreed to let us share it with you.

Once you have what you think is the answer,copy and paste it into a mapping program such as OziExplorer,Mapsource or Google Maps (maps.google.com.au). This will give you a first look at whether you have the right answer. If the arrow points to a solitary tree,a gazebo,clump of rocks,fork in the road,etc.,you can feel confident that you have the correct answer.

Some geocache listing pages include a coordinate checker for you to confirm your coordinates. Most have a ten-minute delay between ‘searches’,so it’s recommended you first try the map method first.
