Ok, so here's the deal. I work second.shift so day caching during the week is a pretty tough adventure. Does anyone here have any tips or tricks for caching at night and or any caches that are recommended for night.

I cache all through the night after I finish my July 4th fireworks show. I start between 11 - 12 and go until dawn. I mainly have been working the Milwaukee downtown/lakefront caches.

Most parks are not 'open' at that time and of course cemetery's are a no-no. Some park areas are 'open' or at least no one is going to bother you. An example of one was along the lake just south of the boat club on the near north side. I even placed a 911 call for some coals that someone dumped. The LEO that responded did not even ask why I was out there at midnight.

Have a good bright, but compact flashlight. A compact one is easier to handle when your hands are full. I can hold mine in my mouth, if needed. A clip-on light for your hat or a headlamp would also work. Do not forget to bring plenty of liquids, as you can still get very thirsty out there.

Caching for urban hides can be very relaxing as there is really no one around. I have always been very comfortable downtown and never had any fear. Do be aware of your surroundings though. Those bread truck drivers are crazy as they hurry to make their early AM runs. [Very Happy]

Have fun!!

Thank you very much. It is nice when caching at night with no muggles watching and messing up my cache. It is hard finding caches in the trees and such at night

The flashlight can really help find them in trees at night and even in the day.
