Sometimes a night cache is unavoidable, such as my 3:15 am FTF. Other times, we can choose to hunt down a geocache while basking in wonderful sunlight or attempt the find under the cover of darkness.
Here is Night Caching Pro/Con list that I have come up with over the years:
Day Pro: It’s light out!
Night Con: It’s dark out!
Day Con: Muggles – lots of them.
Night Pro: Muggles – all in bed by now.
Day Pro: Cache container easy to spot.
Night Con: Cache containers may be hard to spot.
Day Con: Containers may be hard to spot.
Night Pro: Containers may reflect the light from your torch!
Day Con: All the FTF’s are posted at night.
Night Pro: All the FTF’s are posted at night!
Recently SBlookers and I hunted down a cache at night with pretty good success. Check it our below:
