Get Started: Choose a cache type
There are several types of caches, from Traditional to Locationless to Event Caches. Review the Types of caches to choose which type suits your style.
Next Step: Choose a cache location
Sometimes your choice of location will dictate your choice of cache type, but you can also choose which type to place, and then go hunting for a suitable location.

Next: hide your cache

Finally: Submit your cache for review
