Geocaching in Tucson : Making my first cache


Written by:

I’ve hidden my first cache near a really cool mural. Wrote down the coordinates but when I input it, the cache page changes the coordinates to a half a mile away.

So I am going back to recheck the coordinates tomorrow.

tammy-b suggested I download a gps or compass app but my phone is old so I can’t download any more apps. So I told her cgeo or will have to do.  Then she told me about a website to test coordinates on.  I’m not good at remembering things on the fly like that so I’ll have to email her to get the url again.

I should get a geo tag for scrooge and make him a trackable.  It would be fun to see what adventures he goes on.

    I think hides are the most fun part of geocaching. Congratulations on your first one.

      well, the tin is ready and it’s hidden under the rock. I’m going to go check on it tomorrow as it’s been raining and see how it’s doing. then check the coords and maybe actually publish, lol
