Every geocache has the option of including hints. Some caches are so easy that a hint is kind of pointless. That is until the cache goes missing. Maybe it is muggled or maybe it is covered in snow. In either case spending 30-60 minutes looking for a cache that isn’t there is frustrating.
I am probably guilty of not providing great hints with my caches. Going forward I’ll be sure to post better hints. What is a better hint?
- is the cache high or low
- is it inside something
- is it far from the trail
Those are the kinds of hints that don’t give away the location but do help the searcher track down the cache. Standing outside in -15C looking for a cache that is unavailable either from snow or because it is missing is not a lot of fun.
