Adding own cache

Recommended Posts

The family and I have 13 under out belt. We spent last weekend making 30 caches to hide, but neither the wife or I (and the kiddies) can figure out to post/make a new caching post.I have searched this site and I simply can not find what I am lookinf for. we will continue looking for caches but really want to hide some also. WE have even purchased the app for the driod x and that helps but we cant post caches we want to have others find! Help us GEOKenobi you are our only hope.

StarBrand provided a very good link to help you learn about geocaching guidelines and the online form you need to fill out. Read everything thoroughly several times. You say you have 30 caches to hide. Are they going to be in weatherproof containers? Did you pick good locations, or did quality suffer to just to increase quantity?

 

Just hide one cache and fill out the cache creation form to start with. Work through the process with the Reviewer if there are any issues. Then after it's published, do the finders who log your first cache offer any suggestions or feedback? Anything you learn in your first few cache hides will become valuable experience when you start hiding in greater quantity. Good luck, and don't get frustrated if you run into a guideline issue.

I would recommend finding a variety of cache types. You seem to have found "one flavour" of cache.

 

I think it's a good idea to find something more than just a few P&G micros. There's lots of variety out there, that can give you more experience with different styles, sizes, types of caches.

 

And I would highly recommend holding off hiding 30 containers.

 

Go through the process for one, get the feel of how things go first. Then, carefully consider how much time and effort having 30 caches will take to maintain.

Looks like all your found caches are urban micros.

I'd suggest you hold off a while before placing any similar caches. This is a very tricky type of cache to place, and there are many ways to get it wrong.

Perhaps 130 finds would give you a better background on what really works and what really doesn't.
