The Early Bird Gets the Worm

Like I said in my last post, I got up early for some caching Saturday. There are a couple advantages to getting up early for geocaching.
  • It is typically (though not in the summer here) cooler out. I was comfortable in sweats and a zip-up hoodie the whole time I was out yesterday morning. It was great.
  • The muggle factor seems to be lower. I grabbed a cache that I previously couldn't find. It was missing the first time I tried, but I felt more comfortable looking in the morning... when traffic was light and business weren't open.
  • The lighting. I love the light in the morning, even if my photos(or me) don't capture it well ;-)


  • It's peaceful! The birds are chirpin' and the bunnies are scurrying. If you're lucky, you'll have the whole trail to your self. I didn't see soul while I was out grabbing my caches Saturday.
The Path
  • More time to cache! Yes it's true, the earlier you get up... the more time you have for caching (the whole day??). Although, I only went after 3 yesterday.
  • If you have any early caching advantages please feel free to add them in the comments.

What is Geocaching? Answer here.


  1. We love to be out just as the sun is coming up when we go geocaching, as we feel we have the world to ourselves.

    In towns you are able to grab caches virtually muggle free. On the trail you have most to yourself which adds to the sense of discovery and calm.

  2. You make this look and sound so cool.

  3. Skittles - it IS cool. Go get a GPS and try it ;-) I promise you'll love it!
