Doing Nocturnal During The Day

Recommended Posts

The three night caches I did each had closely spaced (10-20 yards) reflectors which pretty much went in a predictable line making it possible to do in the daytime with some persistence. I set up a night cache, Operation Arctic Knights with small (Fire Tack) reflectors about 30-50 yards apart with a couple of more than 90 degree direction shifts which has turned out to challenge folks at night as well. I also made the last stage an offset.

 

Other threads have mentioned the use of UV paint to make following the trail more challenging.

Yeah but isn't night and day a relative thing up there anyway?? B)

Uh, right...forgot to mention the extra challenge up here is that is doesn't get dark at all from May through August. Then there's a relatively short period of eight weeks or so when it does get dark before one's tromping around the woods in new snow and another four weeks after that before the temperature drops to -20 F. At least during the period of 19 hour nights one can do a night cache and still get home in time for supper (or lunch if one goes out in the morning after breakfast) B).
