What does "40 paces" mean to you? in General geocaching topics Posted August 14, 2002 quote:It seems obvious that everyones "pace" is different so I don't get hung up about it. Actually, I prefer not to see that much pinpoint information, unless I really need it. I'm with you, I would normally consider that much information excessive, even annoying. However, in the case of my most recent cache attempt, explicit details are a must. It involves reading information off of a specific headstone in a cemetary, this information in turn is a clue to the next leg of the cache hunt. I was unable to find the correct information, and thought that perhaps this was due in part to the inaccuracies in my counting off paces. Here's the cache I'm talking about. On a side note though, I have since been informed by the cache hider that he may have listed the incorrect names to be found on the headstone. So, no matter how "perfect" my paces would be, I'd still be out of luck.
