This week's episode of the GeoSnippits Reboot podcast hostess Amy the Headhardhatress and I discuss geocaching placements. What triggers a geocache placement spot when you see it?
 
Geocaching Question for you...

What triggers in your mind that a particular area is a good choice to hide a geocache? 

What steps do you take for getting permission once you decide that a geocache would be great to be there? 

We will be discussing geocaching placement on this week's episode of the GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast..

Thanks for your thoughts as always...

For us its been a landmark, or just something out of the ordinary.  One of our cache placements was done purely because there is a statue in the middle of a field near it.

I have been to several other Andy's and this particular one is tired and run down. The food is okay but they have shrunk the portions and the staff don't exactly act like they even want to be there. Shame it used to be a favorite spot of mine.

If you hit the wait staff on a good day it goes well. However, there tends to be a lot of mistakes. Food is always good.
