Delinquent cache owner that needs maintenance in General geocaching topics Posted November 24, 2011 Personally, I would like to see cache adoption stopped. I have a slightly different take on this issue. Please see my log at: http://coord.info/GC15GZX The CO passed away last year. I found both caches she hid, and although I only met her once, I became a police officer in the town she was from, and have grown quite close to the friends and family she left behind. After posting the log, I went to the VFW where all the ladies she knew were in tears... and her husband was there. One of the ladies received the facebook alert on my status, and they all knew about it before I got there. The bartender came up to me and told me I *HAD* to tell her husband. So I went and sat with him and told him all about it. He knew of one of the caches his wife hid, but didn't know about the other. After explaining the condition of the caches, and expressing my willingness to provide the much needed maintenance, he told me she would want me to adopt her caches. So.... how do I go about doing that?
