New cache, not yet posted? in General geocaching topics Posted February 25, 2013 I have found "un-registered" geocaches, twice while caching! The first one was an interesting hide in a remote part of Zilker Park in Austin, Tx. It was hanging in a metal ring on the side of a tree? It had been found by others prior to my locating it, simply by accident while bushwhacking to another trail. I signed the log, took down the coords, and noted the name of the cache and the hider's name. After getting home I tried to research it and finally came up with the CO's name on geocaching, and they had not been active in almost 2 years. They had no active hidden caches, so I figured they placed it but never submitted it for review or maybe it was denied? Do not know? The 2nd one I found, last Fall, in a State Park in Texas, which requires a permit before placement. There was nothing in the cache just a few sheets of paper? This cache has never been published either, I'm guessing the placer did not realize they had to receive permission and pay for a permit before placing the cache and just never went back to retrieve it. I'm sure there are 1000's of caches like this World Wide! The next time I find myself in either park, I'll probably remove the geotrash.
