Hidden In Plain Sight!
Oh, very excited about a discovery I just made.
I’ve always wished there was a way you could privately add a spoiler photo to a log. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone else, but, when a cache is super special, I’d like to add a picture of it so I can look back at it and remember it. It would also be helpful when someone reaches out to me for a hint – if a picture was attached, I could easily remember the hide.
Here’s an example. The cache is called Sign Post – you can clearly see the centrifuge tube drilled into the poll (and there are a lot of poles on this corner but this is the only wooden one). I don’t want anyone else to see it and ruin the fun. However, after 4,000+ finds, when I see the picture saved to the Cloud, I forgot which cache it belonged to.
So, what is my discovery? I have a trackable that VISITS every cache I do. I started attaching my “spoiler” pictures on its trackable log. The pictures do not appear on the original cache page, but I can see them when I scroll through my TB logs. Cool! Hidden in plain sight!
I don’t advocate this for every cache – way to labor intensive, but I love being able to do this for the special ones.
