Geocaching Hints

June 17, 2007

So I went last Wednesday to hunt down a WordPress Schwag Cache (Photos here), and I figured I’d share some hints with potential first-time geocachers:

  • Car GPS’s do not give directions for following trails…use the map, otherwise it will be pointing you towards the nearest road the whole time…
  • Parks close after dark
  • Cops ticket people for parking in closed parks (Most expensive free tshirt ever…$35)
  • Park gates are locked when they close
  • But cops are very nice about opening them up again…
  • Gopher snakes are not actually poisonous, but it’s cool to think you narrowly escaped death by almost stepping on one

So there you have it, if I can save some poor geocaching schmuck some time and $35 it was worth it…
