    Geocaches Big And Small Geocaches Big And Small Presentation Transcript

    • Geocaching: BIG and SMALL. What to look for when caching! Joe Oliphant joliphant@propelschools.org
    • Tips & Warnings • Make your first few geocaches easy to get to and maintain. • Geocaches are usually not hidden closer than 500 feet from each other. • Do not hide anything that has a strong odor or is perishable (food, perfume, "scratch 'n sniff" stickers, etc.). • Do not hide your geocache in an environmentally- sensitive area that is easily destroyed by foot traffic. • Geocaching.com does not allow anyone to dig a hole to hide or find a geocache.
    • How to hide a cache. • Create an online account at geocaching.com • Typical geocache contents • Find a suitable, waterproof container large enough to hold a pencil, logbook (for geocachers to sign) and a few small toys. An old Army ammo can works great for geocaches. • Name your geocache and go searching for a great hiding place (refer to the Listing Guidelines under "Resources" for what hiding spots are allowed). • Logs are great geocache hiding spots! • Make use of any nearby natural camouflage. • Use your GPS to "Mark" the coordinates where you hid your geocache. • Log into your geocaching.com account and click "Hide and Seek a Cache" from the home page. On the right side of the "Hide and Seek" page there is a link to an "online form" for reporting new geocaches. Fill out the form and click the "Report New Listing" button when you are finished. Your geocache will be reviewed and published in about three days.
    • What does this mean?
    • Things to remember. • It’s important that geocachers respect property rights and seek permission where appropriate. • Minimize impact on the environment, including wildlife nesting and breeding areas. • Don’t put yourself or others at risk by placing a cache in a dangerous location. • Observe all laws and rules of the area. • HAVE FUN! • Practice CITO!
