So here's my strategy for finding a micro when you only have the 
coordinates and no clues to help you out. Go to the spot where your GPS 
says 0 meters distance, and then run around like crazy for half an hour to 
follow the drifting GPS signals. You should cover an area approximately 50 
meters in radius. Then come home, plot your tracks on a map, and program 
your GPS with the coordinates in the center of your meanderings. Repeat ad 
infinitum....
