HHH's Lunchtime GotD - Helpful Hints

When geocaching the hider of the geocache can choose to leave you an extra clue to help you find the geocache. Known as Hints, they can sometimes make the difference between getting a smiley or not.

What I like about many of the hints is the cleverness behind them. They don't just say, "Psst, it's next to the third tree on the left..".

Nope, they are usually much more clever with phrases like "Not attack but..." (meaning defense or it's on the fence) or " Look far and wide but don't get stumped" (meaning the geocache is most likely in an old tree stump or log.

There are some really great hints out there and I have seen sometimes the hint is almost as difficult to figure out then the original geocache hide itself. Yet when thoughtfully done with the intent of helping the geocacher it really does add to the game and make it just that much more interesting.

Can you tell the honeysuckle is in bloom? The air is just honey drippin with it.

Then there are those tools that put something like "You just burned 1/1000 of a calorie clicking the hint button" or "no hint" ... that really irritates me! :-)
