As we were loading pocket queries and checking the lithium batteries, it hit me that I had two more tips to share:
Labeling your GPRs
I was just reading on YMBAGI (Facebook) about a man who dropped his iPhone on a power trail while caching. It goes on to tell all about his travails on relocating it (in case you were curious, he never thought to call it because he assumed it was still sitting in deep grass).
And we've all been out with someone who has lost their GPSr units while on a run. Or confused them in a group of units - heading to GeoBash, there will be hundreds laying around. Even in some of our smaller local events, you hand them over to the people loading event caches and hope the post-it note doesn't come loose.
|In a crowd, they start to look alike|
TIP: Even though most units have a spot in the settings to put your contact info (have you updated yours lately?), our local cachers have learned to also ink their email and phone info in the battery compartment.
