After caching for over 6 years I have found that one bit of technology seems to work best. Actually two - A piece of organically derived flat white very thin sheet, and a container of specific secretion blue fluid. Works every time! Except when forget to apply them of course! Doh!

Re: Munzees!

A virtual munzee, huh? I'm guessing you log it from your desk using Street View! :mrgreen: I may be wrong but I believe you still need to go to the location to log it, you just don't need to scan anything.

In Wagga Wagga on the weekend he deployed 94 munzees to make it over 200 within town already. He owns most , ...
