+-CJ- Posted April 15, 2016 Share Posted April 15, 2016 Though the thread seems to be generally on the same wave as some other recents posts of mine the question is different. As I see many cachers who go for puzzle caches like to confirm their calculated coordinates with the owner or with a geochecker. There are some folks that usually don't even attempt a puzzle cache which lacks geochecker (subj). We have "traditional puzzles" in mind: a) we solve something at home, we calculate coordinates, c) we confirm coordinates, d) we go outdoors and grab the container. A puzzle cache can be different however. Coordinates can be calculated not for the final step but somewhere in the middle of the puzzle. There can be puzzles without any calculated coordinates (say, you solve the puzzle at home to know distance and direction from the given coordinates or you can get some textual information which helps you to move further). And there are field puzzles where everything is done once you're in the area, not at home. I address my question to those who use geocheckers as a criteria when choosing caches: do you apply this approach to the puzzles mentioned above? Quote Link to comment
