In trying to find a way to make Geocaching more helpful, a week or more ago, Geocaching added a few more attributes to the mix. I wish more would use them (Including myself) this allows people to filter their Pocket queries. Many of the new geocaching GPS units are also allowing the use of the attributes.
Most of them are self explanatory.
Night Cache.. woo hoo. many wanted it as its own separate category, but this is where it ended up.
Park and Grab. For all those pesky ones on the side of the road, and the emergence of power trails.
Abandoned Structure. For all those people that like old buildings, bridges, and other such items (like me)
The hike distance. Nice to let someone know how far they will need to hike to actually get the cache.
Dangerous animals. I am sure this is because in many parts of the world snakes are not the animal that you need to worry about.
UV Light Required. Though this is not common around here. It is very common in Europe.
Snowshoes. Obvious. I am trying to figure out when this one would be used. 10 feet of snow and it is waist high with snowshoes?
Cross country Skis. Woo Hoo Cervine girls winter ski event will have its own attribute.
Special tool Required. HAHAHA I love this one. For some strange reason.
Well that is all for this small installment. I will be posting some stories of events coming up, along with some stories that I have gathered.
