This is something I think is always worth mentioning, so ....
The geo-caching family is comprised of a wide range of individuals, of all ages and physical capabilities.
At the next event you attend, take a look around. How many families with little kids? How many grandparents? Anyone with a cane?
There is a considerable number of cachers out there who like 'easy' caches, whatever the reason. Then there are those who want 'hard' ones.
Look at the number of visits to a selection of different caches. The easy ones always have a lot more hits than the hard ones. Now why is that, I wonder?
Pick and choose which caches you are interested in, but do not exclude other cachers by restricting what's out there.
Now, where can I plant a "Walmart"?

I agree. We have a 4 year old and a baby. We try to do the ones that the 4 year old can participate in. Unfortunately, that means a lot of micros because of locations that can't contain a "traditional" cache. Otherwise the caches are too difficult for her to get to safely.
I personally like the more difficult ones but can't do them unless I find a babysitter for the day. Anyone want to donate to my cache cash for babysitters?

Yep... all depends on the mood. Amy and I like striking out after a hard cache once in awhile. However, there are times where attire and timing don't allow for the more difficult caches.
For example, we head down to Chicago a lot. Some days we're ready for a trek out into a dense forest preserve. Other times, it's nice to find a nice micro out on the lakefront near Grant Park.

My normal preference are caches that are rated 2-3 difficulty. Terrain is not as important. However, with gas prices as they are, I have enjoyed the easier caches that I can bike to. I can get a couple hours of exercise and hunt caches When you pedal 20-30 miles, you tend to plan your route more effeceintly. Burning energy takes on a whole new dimension when it's your energy that's being burned.
