Moving to a new city in General geocaching topics Posted December 8, 2018 On 12/6/2018 at 8:56 AM, hzoi said: Uncle Sam has us move every couple of years, so we've gotten the geocache part down to a science by this point; I post warning notes a few months out and then archive and collect containers about a month before so they can get packed with the rest of our household goods. Any closer and I'd get caught up in packing, outprocessing, etc. It's helpful that you still are close enough to visit your old stomping grounds and can scoop up your hides if no one adopts them. So far that hasn't been the case for us - two of our moves since we started caching have been transatlantic, and the others have all been state to state. I’m only about two hours away, but too far to provide decent maintenance.
