Here's a great example of what would be referred to as a "Cache-N-Dash". A cache-n-dash is a geocache, as the name implies, that can be found very quickly with very little hiking or walking. Some people "pooh pooh" these sort of geocaches, but we enjoy them - they're quick and easy and fun - and a GREAT way to break up a long trip. They're also good when the weather is rainy, too hot or too cold for a hike.
Cache-n-dashes are not the only type of geocache that you can find somewhat quickly. There is another term - "lunchtime cache" which basically means it's a quick enough find that you could possibly find it on your lunch break. A "lunchtime" geocache would generally be a geocache that you could find and be back to your car within 30 minutes or so. There is also a "clock" attribute icon used at Geocaching.com geocache pages that indicates the geocache can be found in an hour or less. (There are no icons for "lunchtime cache" or "cache-n-dash" but you often might see that term in the geocache description or in the comments.)
Anyway, here's our Adirondack Cache-N-Dash!
We happened to be in the Adirondacks yesterday (checking out our Adirondack property - more on that if you're interested here) and we didn't have the time for anything more than a couple of cache-n-dashes. However we did take a minute to enjoy the view from this geocache location of some ice fishermen on Lake George.
