Lydia....ohhhhh just text James....or e-mail him. I'll send you his geocaching e-mail. He is the BEST at tips and tricks! When you are brand new there are so many things to learn....and looking for the type and size of container is the most helpful thing. Then seeing if there is a "hint" for one if you're having a hard time. Then the other thing to remember is that satellite signals are sometimes not super duper accurate in areas with lots of trees or buildings or canyons....so the coordinates may be a bit off. A really helpful thing if all else fails is to read some of the logs others have written as some will say whether the cache was spot on or a little ways off from the posted coordinates.

But seriously.....James LOVES seeing new people enjoy caching and as long as he's not smack in the middle of a crazy work day or in bad cell signal....he'll happily chat away with you while you're trying to find a cache! Cachers have what they call "phone a friend"......LOL....many of them have each other's cell numbers!
