How Geocaching Works
This is a Night Cache that will take you on a short stroll through a very quiet neighbourhood in north Dunedin.
Recommended parking is close by at S 45° 51.526 E 170° 31.513.
The co-ordinates for the cache will take you to the first of a series of reflective firetacks. At each firetack, stand as close as possible to it then slowly pan around 360° with your torch held at head height until you see another firetack reflecting back.
Note, at FT3, you may need to crouch to see FT4
Move from tack to tack, until you get to a bright Orange tack. At this point there is a small container that has the final offset details for the cache itself.
Be careful as you walk not to disturb any long-term residents. The area can at times be wet and muddy. The cache itself is invisible from 0m.
For further information on tacks and how to see them, Glow-worms and Fireflies has more details.
The 2.5 rating is for the night work, otherwise more of a 1.5 rating.
Free hints. The first tack is towards the end of the avenue of trees from where you parked. The offset container is a micro.
