Just wondered really, places our 1st cache today and keep refreshing in hope it will show up so would be handy to know

 

Thanks

 

The time will range from minutes to days. The goal is to have it reviewed within 72 hours. Your reviewer is probably out caching.

Edit: you will get an email when it publishes. So you don't need to refresh.

No need to refresh Geocaching.com - you will receive an e-mail when the cache is published. :D

 

Sunday night is the busiest time of the week for the volunteer reviewers, so it may take a day or two.

 

Your local reviewer knows more about local conditions than I do. However, looking at your cache, I can see that you stated that it is placed "in a black bin liner". This is generally a bad idea. Bin liners (garbage bags) are designed to bio-degrade, and that's exactly what they do, even if thorns and animals don't get to them. By the time your cache has had three visitors, there *will* be a hole in the bag, which will allow moisture in and then keep it right next to the cache box (and attract insects, snails, etc). It's best to place the box without a bag; that way, the outside may get rained on, but it will be able to dry out.

AH I see, I will go back tomorrow and remove the bag, Very good point Thank you. we put it in the bag so it didn't stand out too much and get muggled but in all honesty it is far from visable from any path so there is no need for it.

 

So glad we came accross geocaching, we have had the best family weekend out and about and walked LOADS.

 

Thank you very much for your help
