Topic: Vehicle use in caching

Posted by barrington on April 01 2002,8:16 pmSo far, I've walked in for all my cache hunts and placements , but some caches are so remote that it seems unlikely they were placed on foot. Has anyone used an ATV, trail bike or even a bicycle to place or search for a cache? Would anyone admit to it?
Posted by mikechim on April 02 2002,6:14 amHave yet to use any of those, although I'll probably place a cache on a mountain bike one of these days.
Posted by scalpel on Sep. 24 2004,2:43 pmI have used a mtn bike alot for caching. Either most or part of the trip, sometimes all of it. Was riding back out from a cache I placed recently and encountered a black bear. IT was neat. The bear took off quick, as I startled it. IT was just about dark, so I got pretty close before I noticed it.
Posted by Quinn on Sep. 27 2004,6:21 pmI also have used my mountain bike to find a cache or two as well as place them. I have a mount right on the handle bars that holds my gps quite nicely.
Those long trails can get to you after a while unless you have a bike I guess.
