I have not found a good cache yet so advice I offer may not be the best.|
Research is the best tool for finding a cache. If you go out looking for something that does not exist then you won't find it. I prefer old newspapers since they tried to be factual and any reports were of actual events that occurred. If they say the bank was robbed and the robbers killed but the money never recovered then thats what happened. It takes a lot of scanning to find a good lead.
It helps when the story talks about a specific sum of money but also mentions some location or feature where the money ($25,000.) was lost. As in the robbers were camped by the old mill but were killed when the police confronted them.
I expect most caches will be found in the basement of houses where people buried it hoping it could not be found but also where they could keep watch on it.
In general I think people would bury caches shallow since they wanted to recover it easily and wanted to use it as a bank. Deposits and withdrawls. joe.
