This is hard... in How do I...? Posted November 11, 2016 · Edited November 11, 2016 by Edesiree (Ooer!) I've searched for about nine caches, and certainly found only two. One, an EarthCache, I knew before I'd even left the house, but we went anyway. The other was a replacement cap on a road name sign post. Of the fails... One was like a geography lesson/test, so although I was at the right place, I didn't have the energy to answer the questions! (shame on me, I know!) Two had too many muggles around and I didn't want to get arrested! One we couldn't begin to work out the first question of the multi-cache, and it was dark Four others we're absolutely sure we were in the right place but couldn't find anything. I can accept my lack of intellectual vigour, and my discretion in the face of many strangers, but it's the 'can't find anything' incidents that bother me. Example: The starting point was a ruined church in the city. The clues lead to various numbers which could then be used to complete a set of coordinates. The clues were pretty simple so I'm sure the numbers I had were correct, but upon find the new coordinates with the GPS I could find nowt there. At least, not without stomping in to a flower bed of a maintained, quasi-formal, gardens, and I doubt the CO would be that irresponsible to hide a cache in a place like that. Checking the written coordinates later, with Google Earth, I know I was looking in the right place. I know this question is impossible to answer, but, indulge me...what am I doing wrong?! :-) JPJ I've read through this thread and have only one other suggestion and that is to go to a site that sells geocaching stuff and you can see what many of the cache containers look like-I couldn't believe it when I found my first bolt on a fence line-very devious.
