  1. I really didn't read through all the posts here and I'm just a hiker/bushwhacker. What does 'TB friendly' mean? I've seen about 5 or 6 of your boxes while bushwhacking. I always treat it with respect. The last one I saw was so full of water that I dumped it out, and tried to clean it up. Plus I always add a sealed WetWipe inside. I never take anything out. I think it's cool what you are doing, but being a hiker, I really have nothing to put inside the box except a WetWipe. I have tons of those in my backpack.
  2. Thanks Gitchee for your thoughts about this. I’m not part of Geocaching, but I have found a few of your cache (is that what you call the boxes?) while bushwhacking. If you don’t mind, I’d love to post every now and then here. Oh…..that box in the Foss cemetery is in bad shape. It needs a new pad inside, and a better seal. Like I said, I did empty the water out of the box, but the writing pad in un-useable. Pretty cool thing…this Geocaching. Every time I saw one of your boxes, I did put a sealed Wet Wipe inside. That’s about all I could offer, being into bushwhacking. I hope it came in handy for one of your members.
  3. I was just there this morning. It's off of Rt. 49, east of exit 28, off 93. It is a very old cemetery called, The Burbank Foss Cemetery. It dates back to the 1800's. I have a web site of all my hiking. Here's the link to the cemetery: http://s1243.photobucket.com/user/JoeR1956/library/Burbank%20Foss%20Cemetery You guys do what you want...I don't want to argue with anyone. I just gave you my thoughts about this cemetery.
  4. I joined the site a long time ago, but never experienced Geocaching. I’m an old fashion bushwhacker. I use a map and compass. My reason for this post is, there’s a Geocaching Box off an old logging road, (Old Waterville Valley Road, NH). It’s in the Foss Burbank Cemetery, a very old and sacred place. It dates back to the late 1800’s. The cemetery’s entrance is marked with three head stone belonging to babies, and the other 12 or so people there, died in their 20’s. I saw the box a few times….it’s waterlogged. I emptied out all the water, but what I’m really asking all of you; can you please move this Geocaching Box to a different location? I did a lot of research on this cemetery, and these poor people from England had it very hard. (As you can see by nobody living past the age of their 20’s) This is very sacred ground, IMO. The box is very easy to spot. The cemetery is small, and the box is a Tupperware, blue covered box, behind a tree on the south side of the cemetery. I’m just asking you from one hiker, to another hiker…please leave this ground pure. Thank You, Joey
