Not so long ago we were caching in Stanley Park and got our directions turned around. There were quite a few folks out walking in spite of the rain.
So, I asked a passerby if she knew where '?' was. She did! We soon found where we wanted to go. Then...lost again we asked some other passersby about a certain feature in the woods. They knew exactly what we were talking about and happily gave us directions! We were now batting a hundred, thanks to the park locals who pay attention to their surroundings.
Muggles can be a cacher's best friend!

Then there are the muggles who are REALLY helpful - here is a post on one of my caches . . . why can't I find someone like this out in the woods in the pouring rain to lend a hand? Beanie

I had "living in the park people" down in Spokane, Wa. ask if I was one of those, "findy people", and then try to sell me the location for $0.75. Once I convinced them that the fun is in finding it myself they must have given all of 2 minutes to look before they lowered their price to $0.50 Very Happy Now how could I refuse such a bargain?? I payed, they showed, I offered smokes, they offered a piece of their blueberry pie Very Happy A little scary at first, those folks turned that cache into what might be my favorite geocaching experience.

The same thing happened to us(angelcheeks and I) as katcogo.
We got off a cruise ship in Puerto Valarta, we headed down the road, we stopped and looked at a bushy area, and a store owner from across the street yelled over to us.."it's on the left hand side." LOL
