Yesterday, as part of the monthly updates to the website, new cache attributes were added. 

Cache attributes communicate to the cache finder what to expect at the cache site.  Cachers with a premium Groundspeak membership can run pocket queries based on these attributes. As a cache hider, you are allowed to select up to 12 attributes for a cache.

New attributes are in the categories;

Conditions - night cache, park and grab cache, cache in an abandoned structure, short hike (less then one km), medium hike (less then 10 km), and long hike (over 10 km).

Hazards - the snakes attributes is renamed 'Dangerous Animals'.

Equipment - UV light required, snowshoes, cross country skis, and special tools required. 

The additions should make it easier for cachers to determine the types of caches they wish to find.
