3 Quick Tips for Successful Geocaching
Perfecting your geocaching treasure-hunting technique takes practice. The best kind of practice is simply to geocache more. Here are 3 quick tips that can help add more joy to geocaching for new cachers and those who have a few finds under their belts.
1) Set Yourself up for Success — Start your first geocaching adventure looking for difficulty 1, terrain 1 geocaches. Check the logs to make sure the geocache has been found recently. This will let you know the geocache will be in place. Search for a "regular" or larger geocache that has at least a few Favorite Points.
2) Know Your Cache Containers — Geocaches are often cleverly hidden. They might be camouflaged to look like a rock or to blend into the environment.

As a last resort, you can email the cache owner for an additional hint.
3) Find a Geocaching Friend — Geocachers love to share the location-based adventure. Attend a local geocaching event to meet other geocachers. They'll be glad to help with any questions and offer a wealth of knowledge into geocaching around your region.
