Geocaching With A Mirror

You know how I love my geocaching thing-a-ma-bobs. Those handy must haves to help you while geocaching. Today's find would have been a real pain had it not been for my trusty mirror. Above you see the cache nestled in the corner of some 2x4s. Would have taken me forever by feeling my way around this structure. Be prepared really comes true when geocaching.

As an added note a mirror is also very important if you ever want search and rescue people to find your lost and wondering self. Shining the sun in the direction of a helicopter or rescue party can sometimes mean the difference of being found or not. Just a friendly FYI.

I like the mirror idea cache. It helps. I have never used a actual mirror to go caching with. But I have used a round piece of metal about the size of a cd to look under rails and such. It is a good idea. I too have a caching blog it is http://hiddencache.blogspot.com/

Don't know if it was a pun, typo, or what, but "lost and wondering" made my day.

If you don't have a mirror, you can often do 'recon by camera', just snap a pic, then use the preview mode to see if anything is in the hole in question.
