+Dread_Pirate_Bruce Posted July 5, 2010 Share Posted July 5, 2010 My buddy and I were out riding ATVs in the dessert. We found some caches. We hid some caches, so the question of terrain ratings came up. I know this has been covered before, but I felt like covering it again. To get near some of the caches would take an ATV, motorcycle or jeep. A horse could do it, but it would take several hours. A very rugged hiker could probably do it. But realistically, mechanization is needed. However, once one is within 200 yards of the cache, it is pretty easy terrain. So, what is the proper terrain rating? Is it "5" because special equipment is required? Is it 1.5 because once you are using an ATV, motorcycle or jeep, it is a short, easy walk from the trail? Is it a 3.5 because that is the approximate average of 5 and 1.5? BTW: the ones we hid are essentially P&Gs if you have a suitable machine. Quote Link to comment
