On a side topic...since everyone is in agreement that the coords of the placing cacher are important I'll offer a greedy, capitalist suggestion. As long as my boss doesn't mind, I'll bring a survey grade GPS unit out when the cache is being placed and give you a coordinate within a couple centimeters. This will benefit everyone by providing a highly precise position (of course your GPSr won't give you any better position) of the cache...I'll obviously have to charge for the service (remember...greedy capitalist)...and I'll have the record for FTFs in no time.
GOOD TRY...... I PERSONALLY TRY TO GET 2 OR 3 READING WHEN PLACING A CACHE AND THEN TAKE THE AVERAGE. USUALLY JUST A FEW FEET APPART.
