I saw that there is a neat sounding one in my hometown in Cali - hoping to do 
that this summer

There were, at one time, several great night caches in the area but, sadly, 
they are gone.  The only special equipment I have for night caching is a nice, 
strong flashlight.  I've only seen one cache that required UV and it could be 
figured out without it.  Maybe I;ll start scouting the area to see if I can put 
one out.  


It's not only the destination but the path you take and the friends you make 
along the way

Sometimes there's a night cache (maybe just temporary and not loggable)

than a flashlight for something like that.

If the weather's nice, there are usually several (or many) groups of cachers 
who keep caching well into the night, especially Friday night.  Again, just a 
flashlight or a headlamp is all that's needed.  It's a fantastic experience, 
but needless to say, tread carefully.  I seem to remember some night caching at 
Mark Twain that almost led a group of us off a bluff in single file, like 

No one's ever given us any trouble about caching at night at MOGA in an ACOE 
area (well, maybe a sheriff's deputy once, but that's a different story) but if 
anybody knows something special about the Shelbyville area, please speak up 
before I get Patty in trouble.

So just look around for folks who are heading out to cache after the BYO and 
you'll get your fill of night caching!

Greetings, all.  I ran a PQ for night caches around MOGA, but the closest one 
is over 25 miles away (and is a puzzle cache).  I have never been night caching 
and was wondering if anyone going to MOGA planned on doing night caching and if 
s/he'd mind if I tagged along for the experience.  Since I'm still a novice, I 
don't have any night caching equipment (special lights and the like) and I 
wanted to try it out before I invested in anything like blacklights, etc.  
Please advise.  Thanks!
