    I don't think that any cacher would mind if a visitor placed a cache away from home as long as the cache was placed in such a way to minimise the requirement for maintenance. Extra caution be be taken to ensure that the cache doesn't become a burden on someone else. My favorite story is of a cacher visiting KZN, not bothering to find one KZN cache but placing a cache that ended up being muggled repeatedly. In other words, know your surroundings before dumping geolitter.
  3. It has always been sportsman like, not to claim the FTF, if you have been in attendance when the cache was placed or if you helped set it up or had inside information. By all means log a find, but put it on record that the next cacher will get the FTF.
  4. The Finish Line With only two months left the finishing line has been placed. All remaining bugs must be placed in Deminishing View, GC16Y2K, on or before the end of the year. Good Luck.

  9. The head chopping is speeding up, as we get closer to the end of the year.
  10. September Update The organising body are very sad to announce the untimely passing away of two travel bugs this month. They are: Strandloper Whostops 15 4201 6 5176 Mickey Racer TeamTGF 13 4179 5 5004 There are three months remaining and 8 bugs still with all their body parts. How many will die next month? The race finish will be placed on the 1st November 2007 in KZN. Watch out for it, as all bugs must make the finish. As Christmas approaches, only 79 shopping days left, who will keep their head.

    I would like to do it again, but I will do it with my Hi-Techs. There is a poor bug that needs rescueing.
  21. What does everyone feel about a cache owner deleting another cachers log or logs? Obviously when visiting a cache and then writing up a log you do so but invitation of the cache owner, but the cache is now in the caching domain and cachers have the right to make comments. I think most cachers try to make any comment with sensitivity and try to word their comments, so that no offence is taken, although constructive critism is part of the game. Then there is also the saying that if you have nothing good to say, say nothing. Rather than delete a log, rather PM the cacher and ask for a section or sections to be modified especially if it gives away information. But what are you trying to hide by deleting logs???
  22. Race Update It is another grey, windy, dull and cold morning in KZN. The clouds are still hanging low, making it especially mournful after the GRIM REAPER visited us in the early hours of Sunday morning. Another KZN bug , "Message in a bottle" has lost his head in the race for glory. With only one bug left from KZN our hopes are with "Strandloper" to hold its head up high, not too high though and make it for another month. The race organisors send our deepest symapthy to Tim & Sam on their bugs eviction from the race and we hope that you see it one day, in far off places. The race will diffenately start speeding up from here as we head into the second half of the year and I heard that the grim reaper is alo going to be speeding up his culling song. GET THOSE BUGS MOVING
  23. Please update (recalculate) your bugs, because the grim reaper is coming in the morning!!!
  24. My 2 cents. I think that in certain areas, especially where flora needs to be protected, 10 m makes a huge difference and cachers placing caches should try and think what might happen when cachers start searching for a cache. Unfortuantely if the clue is not suffiecient, lots of rocks get turned over and lots of plants get damaged, usually a whole area. Not good for a low impact sport. So it is not only about searching with sensitivity, but also placing with sensitivity.
