Roadtripping and Cacheing in How do I...? Posted April 15, 2015 So first I'd like to suggest a category easier than easy: caching for dummies! Because yes, while you will notice that we did manage to find some cache's we are still dumbfounded when we get to "easy" ones with comments like "takes less than a minute" and we still can not find them!!!! ARGH!!! But more importantly - let me ask - if you are taking a road trip do you plan your trip around caches or do you just like open your App and find nearby caches while you are on the road? We recently went to Chincoteague and when we got there we obviously opened the app and found a few caches. However, on the way home, we didn't quite figure out a method of caching - we did stop for lunch and found one there - but along the roadway - we just didn't quite plan ahead maybe? I kept opening the app, but there seemed to be no method to the madness so we drove by several and didn't stop. So what kind of planning do you do on roadtrips? We will be going from Annapolis to Wareham Massachusetts this summer. Any tips, good caches we must see? etc? Hoping to get at least a state badge for every state we travel through.... just haven't wrapped my head around the planning (I get distracted/overwhelmed easily). Thanks for any tips! Nut To say when we were caching "in the day" (we had a long break in there due to not having any, or very few, within 100 or so miles from the house), that we planned our trips around caching would be Almost a lie. With the exceptions of 2 last second decision trips, we would plan One location to go to. We drive to all our vacation spots (which we haven't done in a while either) so we would run PQs for certain areas and determine our drive by where we could get some (we also have a Nuvi GPS for the car). Now that we live in a new area that has LOTS of caches within 30 miles of home we're getting back into caching. We are, however without a GPS of any kind. We use only our phones. So right now we get to a spot and open the app. Otherwise, the next time we take a trip We will still do a PQ to determine the best spot for a short stop, but use our maps from the phones to get to the general location and then we will open the app there. I actually hope to get a new GPS (handheld) to add to the fun. As for the "takes less than a minute" but you're still having problems... We had some problems when first getting started. It takes a bit of patience. I got to were I could get out of the car at just about any of them and go almost straight to the cache. Except for the hike ones lol.
