    Default Tidal Earthcache, Extreme Low Tide

    There will be a seasonal extreme low tide at my Tidal Earthcache at 6:03 AM on Friday, 31 March. Anyone interested in getting as close as possible to the cache location should try to be there!

    Time and tide wait for no one, so be sure to get there early enough to walk out to the water, about mile.

    What is the waypoint listing? I search for Caches by zipcodes and distance from my house so far but I do know how to find it with the waypoint also. Might try it with the kids...

    Shouldn't that read 6:03 AM? It looks like the evening tide isn't nearly as low.
    I have had this one on my list of caches to do for a long time, but unfortunately my schedule and the tides haven't coincided for a good attempt at this one. Looks like another good chance I am going to have to skip.

    Great, thanks Slate but am or pm wil make a huge difference for me. Hate to drag the kids all that far to not be able to reach it. I'll have to check into that.

    I checked out the description and some logs of this cache. I didn't know what an earth cache was until now. I'd like to do this before tourist season, (did I say that?) early spring, late fall, winter. We do something like this at Popham.

    Default Ooops!

    Thanks for catching my error! The extreme low tide is indeed in the AM.

    Just asking such a question proves you are addicted!

    This is looking like a perfect oppurtunity to go. The weather is going to be perfect, with a high pressure zone directly over the ocean.
