First Time Out

Recommended Posts

Told the youngest boy about geocaching and boy he was all for it. Had to go to LOZ for a speaking engagement and figured I would try finding one in that neck of the woods. Tried finding one in Fiery Fork Conservation area but man it is harder to find then you think. Didn't find it for some guys were camping there and didn't want to leave the truck unattended. Decided to go find another one closer to where we were staying and still couldn't find. boy was the young one down hearted. Found a couple close to home so I will take him out tomorrow.

Sorry Junkman, missed this one. The lesson I was taught, and it worked for me was to make sure you are looking for "medium and large" containers on your first tries. Stay away from the micros. It helps you get the hang of it.

Micros require a little thought and keen observation. Look for cache tracks, beaten paths to where people have looked before. Check every outlet cover, post that has a hollow, etc.
