A Geocacher DNF one of my caches and responded with their log “WTF” how should I handle this?

Andy/Amy – Don’t lower your standards because of the few geocachers out there that do not understand how to act civil. Startle them by offering help or a clue.

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 202
Geocaching Basics – Geocache Sizes – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 202

HHH, Please show some examples of micro, small, regular, and large containers. Also, I would love some tips on finding small or micro geocaches. I’m a newbie!

Geocaches vary greatly in size and appearance. In the field you will see everything from large, clear plastic containers to film canisters to a fake rock with a secret compartment. So, how do you find the cache?

The first step is to get a general idea of the cache’s size. The size is shown on each cache page. A general overview of the cache size graphic is found below. Please note that these are just examples; sizes can vary.

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 201
Understanding Multi and Puzzle Geocaches – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 201

What is a Multi-cache?
These geocaches involve two or more locations, with the final location being a physical container with a logbook inside. There are many variations, but typically once you’re at the first stage, you will receive a clue to the whereabouts of the second stage. The second stage will have a clue for the third, and so on.

What is a Puzzle cache?
The “catch-all” of geocache types, this type may involve complicated puzzles that you will first need to solve to determine the correct coordinates. Mystery/Puzzle Caches often become the staging ground for new and unique geocaches that do not fit in another category.

Differences between Multies and Puzzles?

Multi-caches:
Consists of several stages or waypoints that eventually leads to a traditional geocache

Puzzle caches:
Puzzle getting to the geocache
Puzzle getting the log out of the geocache

Pros and Cons?

Pros
Pro – Multi – Takes you on an adventure

Cons
Con – Multi – Multiple stages and a single smiley
