    One Tip- Urgent!!!

    Tomorrow morning and afternoon I am speaking to a class about geocaching. My question to you is this: What is one tip you would give a new geocacher?

    Just one please (I figure one per everyone on here will cover just about everything).

    These kids are jr high and sr high, in case that makes a difference.

    When the GPSr gets you close to ground zero stick the GPSr in your pocket and just look.

    Why is that there? Just look for stuff that is out of place. That is my best advice.

    Be prepared for anything and don't focus completly on your gps. Also think about how you would hide something.

    Tell them to have fun, but warn them it can be addictive!

    Don't hide a geocache until you have found at least 50 caches of different types of hides placed by different geocachers.

    Thanks for all the tips! I will pass them on to hopefully a few new cachers.

    Don't always look on the ground.
