Hidden Caches

Recommended Posts

I know the actual title says it all but, we've just started hiding caches, and we went to place another and it was denied.  The reason being it was too near a hidden cache.  This cache didn't show up at all when we were placing it.  
Is there a way to find out about these, or is it just pot luck when we place it.

It's already put the 9 year old off a little, after going to the trouble of her picking a spot.

Final locations and hidden physical stages of multis, puzzles, etc. won’t show up on the map, yet your cache will need to be at least 1/10th of a mile from all of them.

 

There’s no easy way round this.  If you’ve found or solved all of the other caches within a couple of miles, you’ll have most of these hidden stages.  If not, you have a couple of options...

 

You can ask the reviewer for some guidance - they won’t give you the exact location of the troublesome hidden stage,  but they might suggest moving your cache in a particular direction.

 

If you have a good idea who might own the other cache(s) - maybe a prolific local puzzle setter? - you could reach out to them.  They may be prepared to point you towards a free area.  Or at least, let you know which puzzle(s) you need to solve.

 

Good luck.

This is incorrect.  You will see PMO caches in a website search for nearest caches.  They show up in the list and show the distance from your new cache. You just can't open the page to see the coordinates.
