    Default Geocaching Night Vision

    I have tried this one time when the cache was in a very public place.
    I needed to go after dark because the area was plagued with muggles during daylight and at night it was pitch black.
    Any use of a flashlight would have brought unwanted attention to my search.
    Is tactical geocaching even a thing??

    Kind of, but you need different tactics.

    I've found that if you look like you're trying to be sneaky, someone will notice.

    If you act like what you're doing is 100% normal, no one will care.

    Learn to act like you belong. You'll be able to stroll up to a cache in the middle of a crowd and grab it and no one will bat an eyelid.

    Acting like you belong is a lot easier to do if you also *look* like you belong. One-piece coveralls, hardhat, safety vest, safety goggles might help with that. Or some kind of uniform.

    I was at a party once and somehow I was talking to a friend of a friend who was a cop about what he does when there's no action. Geocaching came up and it really surprised me that he was into that. I guess a cop uniform isn't exactly low-key, but there's a lower likelihood of someone calling the cops on a cop poking around in odd places with a flashlight. Kinda cheating IMHO! lol
