or how come only one find since I hid it in early May? It's obviously not impossible, since one person was able to find it. There are a ton of cachers in the Chippewa Valley, but I thought someone else would have found it by now or at least posted their frustrations.

Anyhow, just a cachemaster waiting for someone to find his cache.

You might want to convert the coordinates so as to eliminate any conversion. I don't know if most people are familiar with converting that in their GPS or if all are able to do that. We've had similar hunts in SE Wisconsin and it does tend to reduce those that go on them. But then I can think of several here that would jump at such a hunt, me included. Leave it and give it time.

We agree with Steve on the co-ordinate format. Many cachers would not even recognize a dotted decimal co-ordinate when they see it, and would probably just give up when they could not figure out how to enter it into their gpsr.

Also, at one point in leg two you swicth from dotted decimal to standard 'deg min.mmm' format for some reason, then switch back to dotted decimal in leg three. This could also cause confusion.

Standardizing on the geocaching 'deg min.mmm' format might get more people hunting your cache, which does look like its fun!

Good luck!

Thanks for the replys, converting from Decimal Degrees to/from Deg/Min/Sec has almost become second nature for me, so never even thought that about that. I editted the description so that the locations are now in degrees, decimal minutes but did leave the decimal degree data there too (theres a good reason for this, but have to do the cache to find out why).

Anyhow, thanks for the feedback

You're welcome. One other idea now that those changes were made. To kick start it again, you could edit the date it was hidden to reflect today's changes. That would get the cache listed back on the 'new cache' listing.
