Not all geocaches are created equal.
If you live in a high-populated city, it’s likely that urban geocaches are up your alley. However, if you live in a small, secluded town, most geocaches are found deep in the forest or on mountain trails. There are specific containers, terrains, and creativity that comes with either an urban or a nature cache and there are specific clues that you should look for during your hunt.
The Urban Cache:
- Usually a small container
- Sometimes can be magnetic that is attached to electrical boxes, fences, or road signs
- Blends in very well with its environment
- You must act natural during the hunt so non-geocachers don’t think you’re up to something suspicious
- Usually found in parking lots, public parks or near buildings
The Nature Cache:
- Usually a larger container
- Mostly found under a pile of rocks or in a tree
- Do not have to worry about “muggles” or non-geocachers
- Brings you to a beautiful or interesting place
After gaining some experience with finding urban and nature geocaches, it will become easier to decide what kind of finds you enjoy or which ones you find more difficult.
