Share your maker advice in comments below or on the Geocaching Facebook page.Share with your Friends:More Let’s paint a mental picture: on cold, dark, rainy, frost-bitten, locust-infested nights—and all other nights—your geocache waits, hoping for intrepid explorers to sign the logbook. But if your geocache is lonelier than you expected, it might ultimately be waiting for a very special someone: you. Geocaches don’t just require maintenance; some may need some more tender loving care. If your geocache isn’t getting the “Found it!” after “Found it!” logs you think it deserves, there are options to help up the find count.Rewrite the description: Be creative, add some humor, local insight and upload a few pictures to the geocache page.If you’re not fundamentally changing the experience, choosing a sturdier container or adding a splash of personality to your geocache will help cultivate Favorite Points and lead more people to your adventure.Double-check your coordinates. People might be trying to find your geocache, but are led astray.Did you choose a container size on your geocache page? If the container is listed as “size not chosen” it might discourage people from searching for your geocache.Get advice from a notable geocache maker in your neighborhood, attend a Maker Madness event to up-level your geocaching hiding game.And if you’re not interested in maintaining the geocache anymore, it’s okay to archive your geocache and open up the location to other hiders, or even adopt it out to another geocacher.  ​center_img Revisit Your Geocaches, Leave Them Feeling Newlast_img read more

Effective yesterday (August 14), the Transport Authority reopened 3,683 spaces for Route Taxis and 229 Rural Stage Carriages islandwide.The routes have been reopened to satisfy the increased demand for legally operated public transportation services, and to encourage illegal operators to get registered.In an interview with JIS News, Communications Coordinator at the Transport Authority, Merdina Callum, said the reopening forms part of the agency’s strategy to build a people-centred public land transportation system.“Commuters have been requesting transportation in certain areas.
