Hiding tips in Getting started Posted April 22, 2019 Make sure to get permission. Always think of safety & about the impact your cache will have on the area. All of my hides are on conservation land so I'm very careful how and where I hide caches. It's very important in these situations to hide your cache in an environmentally responsible way. It's equally important to think about the impact cachers will have on the area while searching. By getting permission and establishing a relation ship with the property owners I was able to gain information about sensitive areas and habitats I wouldn't have known about and avoid those areas altogether. Believe me this attention to detail will go a long way in developing your reputation as a good cache owner and will make getting permission in other like areas much easier. As for the hide itself. For me there are three criteria for a good hide. Location - Find a spot that people are going to enjoy getting to. Presentation - Hide the cache in a way that's unique and interesting. Camouflage - Disguise your container or use a container that's unusual. If you can incorporate one or two of these in your cache hide It will be a good one. Good luck.
