Introductory Caches

((This is the Bookmark List we've created to show new cachers in Carson a selection of Beginner Friendly styles. You can view the list here: Introductory Caches. The order is simply alphabetical, it means nothing.))

After several years, we have noticed that many new players encounter frustration during their first attempts at geocaching. It is our hope that this list of caches will provide a good introduction to the sport and help new players develop the skills to be more successful cachers. Included are a variety of cache types, sizes, hiding methods, and techniques that many geocachers may encounter.
