Locationless Cache GC9FAVE

Have you logged  GC9FAVE – Discovered while geocaching – Locationless Cache yet?

By logging this cache, you’ll score a rare cache icon and share a favorite local place that you discovered with geocaching!

Maybe you’ll choose a place where you hid a cache, or perhaps somewhere you discovered when searching for a cache.

This Locationless Cache is available until December 31, 2023.  So if you haven’t logged already, hurry to ensure you do not miss out on this cache!

Make a plan for the time you have
Geocaching outings can spring from inspiration in so many ways: a trail recommendation, a new town to explore, or a cache you have wanted to find and experience. Make sure you pick a destination that you have enough time for on the day of your trip, and tell others where you’re going. Rushing could lead to a deviation of your plan and having you and your group out later than expected, or in a place you weren’t planning to go.

Check the weather and trail conditions
The saying goes: “there’s no bad weather, just poor planning!” Checking the weather or the trail conditions will help you bring the clothing and gear you’ll need to be successful. Even the right jacket could dramatically affect how comfortable you are on your trip, so knowing the temperature and the possibility of rain will help you get to where you want to go.

The Aussie bush
The Aussie bush can be unpredictable.  Stay up to date about floods and fire alerts can be life saving.  Consider bringing a snake bite kit in the summer and carrying a Personal Locator Beacon in case of emergency and without mobile phone reception.

Grab the right gear
Check the description and recent activity on the geocaching pages on your List to make sure you’ll bring the right gear along so you can reach the caches you’re looking for.  From kayaks to trekking poles to bandanas to snowshoes, the right gear can make a huge difference. And of course, don’t forget your pen!

Bring snacks and water
Bodies need fuel to keep going, so bringing along some snacks and water to keep you going will definitely keep you happy on your outing. Bringing more than you think you need will ensure you still have some food with you if you experience a delay.

Knowledge is power—the more you know before you leave for your trip and the more prepared you are, the more likely you are to be successful! How do you stay prepared for your cache outings?
