    Good eh?

    Rated our two caches, which have been placed for a while and are not in "normal" containers. It was bob-on for one and slightly high for the other - I had pondered about that one for a while and could still rate higher with a clear concience.

    Thinks - time for another perhaps?

    Thanks,

    Nice one!

    I like the leeway it gives with .25 and .75 so you can use a bit of "local knowledge" to up or down the rating.

    On a subject very close to my heart as my wife is disabled, can I ask if everyone can also give a thought to using the excellent rating tool over at www.handicaching.com

    This provides a rating that people with disabilities can use to ascertain whether or not they are capable of attempting a cache and takes into account such factors as obstacles on route, do you have to reach to a certain height etc.

    Also please review your cache on there so that cachers with disabilities can search for your caches and hopefully visit them. Here endeth the public services announcement.

    Thanks, Ian
