Rules of Thumb

August 18, 2010

These rules of thumb popped up on Latitude 47, the official blog, and I thought they were humorous enough to share!

1- No matter how much advance research you do, the cache will be on the other side.

2- Any references to water/swamps/mosquitoes/tics in a cache’s description or log entries should be believed.

3- Always take the official bushwhacking distance and multiply by 3.62.

4- Waterproof footwear isn’t waterproof — unless the water is already inside.

5- You are allergic to some form of plant life; you just don’t know which one yet.

6- Always carry spare batteries, always.

7- If something looks out-of-place for the locale, it could be the cache.

8- If something looks absolutely authentic for the locale, it could be the cache.

9- Sometimes you have to just trust the instruments; at other times go with your experience and instinct.  The trick is figuring out which approach to use for THIS cache.

10- Excessive coffee drinking does not go well with caching.
