How To Make A Pathtag Display Case:
You need:

Back in the old days…. There was the forum.
With all the modern day social media and smart phone apps, the forums may not be the top pick for finding out geocaching information. Yet they still can provide information if you look around.

SHOW NOTES

What makes finding a geocache so much fun?
Finding and holding a physical container
The Logical Thinking it takes to find one
Going on the adventure wherever it takes you
Enjoy the story

Geocaching Basics: The Geocaching Sense – What is it?
Built on experience including many learned points of reference
Intuition
Luck
A deep need to play Spiderman when geocaching

There are many different ways of finding that geocache when approaching ground zero. Tonight We thought it would be a fun tutorial discussion by going over ground zero techniques.

With GPSrs – What causes “bouncing arrow”?
Heavy Overhead Coverage – Trees, Foliage, Mountains, etc.
Valley or Hollers
City Buildings
With Smartphones – What causes the “this dang arrow hasn’t moved in the past 60 yards phenomenon?
All of the above
Bad WiFi crossover areas
Your phone is overloaded due to available memory, storage, age.

FINDING GROUND ZERO TECHNIQUES
Intersection – 90 degree approaches to ground zero. Come in from the south mark where ground zero is. Then come in from the east or west and mark. Average your differences.

Spiral Out

Approaching ground zero – best advice, put your gps in your pocket and look around

Ground Zero Suggestions
Turn off preconceptions – you can fool yourself
Nanos
Magnetic – Use the force, under, up, inside, within, high, etc.
Bison Tube Inserts – fits just about anywhere
Implanted into resin molds and forms, Only the cap sticks out
Random geocaching tidbit for the day: Evil Resin Nano Geocache

Bison Tubes, Pill Containers
Time of Day, Shadowing, Sunlight
Shake that tree
Camouflage
Pine cones
Concrete
Molding into the environment
Fitting in any nook or cranny
Bondo
Grape Vines – Engage the cloaking device
Pine Trees
Holly Bushes
Fences
Local Hides (Flora and Fauna)

Smalls and Regular Geocaches
Pile of Sticks
Logs
Trees
Hidden in
Trap Doors
Caves
Rocks
Hidden on Stick in tree
Phobias – that’s the place to hide them
