Yes, it’s getting a bit cold outside, and geocaching might take a backseat to cozying up to a cup of hot cocoa next to a warm fire, but – at least in Southern California – we are lucky enough to be able to geocache all year long!
As a conservationist, I like to encourage people to work in harmony with Mother Nature. Not just because it’s good for everyone, but because she’s a bitch if you cross her. There are a couple of great new blog posts by Annika over at the Geogaching Blog about geocaching in harmony with nature. Part I is about hiding a cache, and Part II is about finding caches.
Tips described in detail in Part I:
- Have a comprehensive geocache details page.
- Place the geocache carefully.
- Choose an appropriate geocache container.
- Work with your geocaching community volunteer.
- Don’t leave Cache-Trash.
Tips from Part II:
- Stay on track.
- Bring garbage bags.
- Leave the car at home.
- Keep geocache owners informed.
- Respect wildlife and plants.
- It is OK to DNF.
