+flaffle Posted May 22, 2009 Share Posted May 22, 2009 I would still consider myself a newbie after doing this solo for 5 months. I'm a hiker/nature lover so I've stuck to what I know which is generally heavily wooded areas (ammo to micros) and the occasional guard rail magnet. I'm going to be spending a week in New Orleans and will need to do some caching and here's where my problem is... I tried to do some traditional urban caches the last time I was in Washington D.C. and it was just so different from what I was used to I stuck to the virtuals. I'm going to have to suck it up and do some "traditional urban caches" since there is only about 11 virtuals in the walking area that I will be staying in. When I've asked the question before I've gotten the response "Stick to what you like and/or are comfortable with"...but I'm going to have to get comfortable with urban caches. So for you city slickers out there, PLEASE, how do you find urban caches? What the heck is an "traditional urban cache"? Do you carry your GPS in plain sight? How's the accuracy in a big city? Just general tips on urban caches are appreciated. I know trade secrets are a big deal but any advice you can provide is appreciated. I really have no idea how to do this and don't want to spend the entire week drinking hurricanes. Quote Link to comment
