Do you groan or do you rejoice when you realize the cache you thought was going to be filled with travel bugs is actually a magnetic nano smaller than your thumbnail? Are you one of the first to go after the latest puzzle cache as soon as it’s posted, or do you pull your hair out because you’re not a good puzzle-solver? Some folks stick to one kind of cache, be it because of comfort or just not being familiar with the others.  Now is your chance to spread your wings.
