Reply To: Should We Add Hints & Spoilers?


I guess the situation here is that, like everything else in life, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to geocaching. Odd though it may seem, I really don’t like searching for caches – I got into geocaching because I enjoy walking, and I like to visit new places and see great scenery. I do appreciate clever hides, where some effort has gone into concealment, but I’m not a lover of grubbing around in leaf litter for caches, so I always use every scrap of information that is available before getting to a cache, which includes all hints, photos and previous logs, to minimise the amount of time I have to spend searching. Because of this I usually try to hide my caches in obvious places, with hints and spoilers for those that want them.
