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
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.
Approaching ground zero – best advice, put your gps in your pocket and look around
Ground Zero Suggestions
Turn off preconceptions – you can fool yourself
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
Molding into the environment
Fitting in any nook or cranny
Grape Vines – Engage the cloaking device
Local Hides (Flora and Fauna)
Smalls and Regular Geocaches
Pile of Sticks
Hidden on Stick in tree
Phobias – that’s the place to hide them
