After you have secured your hiding spot you then have to get as accurate coordinates as you can. I usually take at least 3 readings to be sure I am getting the same numbers. If I am not, I continue until I think it is pretty close. We have found cache coordinates to be way off on some hides, which can make for a frustrating day. We have discovered windy or cloudy days actually affect how accurate we are. Here I am concentrating on getting my coordinates.
To date we have found over 900 geocaches. Our goal for this year was to reach 1000, but we got busier with the business than anticipated, so that goal is on hold for now. :) But I have a lot of fun caches and hide styles and themes I will be posting about in the future.
