The Weather Outside is Frightful but…
… geocaches don’t find themselves. It’s true. And we don’t want to live in a world where they actually do find themselves (didn’t you see the movie Terminator?). So the question is, how do you brave the winter (or summer if you’re in a sizzling hot climate) and still feed your need for smileys? We’ve got you covered.We talked to a geocacher with a streak of more than 700 straight days of finding a geocache. There’s been extreme heat, snowy whiteouts and pouring rain. Jon Stanley, better known as Moun10Bike, tells all about geocaching in tough winter climates in this blog post.
Here are tips for the other extreme: heat.
|•||Wear proper sun protection, a hat, sunscreen, etc…|
|•||Avoid being outside for long periods during the hottest part of the day|
|•||Geocache in the early morning or after the sun goes down|
|•||Bring a friend and always tell someone where you’re geocaching (don’t have a 127 Hours situation)|
|•||Mostly, use common sense: although geocaches don’t find themselves (thankfully), they’ll still be there the next day for you to find them safely|
