      Moosiegirl is the local “Hotline”.  Her number is six 32-6206.  She’s a full-time cacher, so she’s generally available during reasonable waking hours and is happy to help.

      For anyone else who you have a number for, I’d generally assume reasonable waking hours also.  Paul doesn’t seem to sleep, so he’s fair game 24 hours.

      If you’ve already left the cache site, most cachers are glad to give you help by email, too. 

      I will say that there are some cachers who don’t believe in hints or helping someone who’s stuck, and that’s fine.  You’ll quickly learn who those people are and who is open to helping.

      My philosophy about lifelines is that the community of cachers is one of the great things about geocaching.  The fact that we HAVE friends to phone is a cool thing, and I don’t hesitate to phone my friends whenever I’m stumped, someplace I don’t care to linger, or just impatient.  I’m totally OVER making repeat visits so I can have the thrill of finding it myself.  The thrill of kicking myself for being a dufus after my lifeline guides me to the cache that was right in front of my face is sufficient!  That’s just me.   

      There are lots of people who don’t mind giving their phone numbers out and helping, but it helps to have met or emailed before you call them.  The Christmas Party would be a great place to meet people and get phone numbers.  See you there?

      Could someone offer me some guidance on when it is cool to call for
      help on a cache? I have noticed that we all cache at different times
      (e.g. before work in the early AM, at night, and sometime very late at
      night). What's a good rule of thumb?

      Also, I know there used to be a hotline phonelist. Is that still
      floating around?

      Thanks,

        I can add you to my address book. I don't normally answer the phone
        for numbers not already in my address book ;)
