  1. Thx for the links and this answered a lot of my questions and makes a strong argument

  3. The NM log wouldn't goto maintenance guy it would still goto co. It would be up to the co if the want to fix the NM or it would be THEIR choice to contact the maintenance guy. Maintenance guy wouldn't act on the NM log with out the co first contacting that person
  4. I think grounds peak should add a button the the CO cache page, by Edit, Archive, Disabled. That way it's the co that sends out the maintenance request on their own. Kinda have the setup as a reviewer, but has no control of the cache pages. When you creat a new cache you have to fill out a forum that goes to the area reviewer. With the maintenance button it goes to the area maintenance volunteer
  5. Every one tries to make a dollar off any thing. I'm offing up for free. Come on people this is supposed to be a hobby/pass time not a career, u think the reviewers get paid to check your new cache? Please check the CO's activity first and whether they are a conscientious cache owner that could use a hand with a small issue. Don't enable lazy cache ownership. Often a NM or NA does the community a better service then helping a cache limp along. If it's a cache dense area or a nice location there may be someone who will appreciate having an abandoned cache archived so they can place a cache. Are you replacing poor quality containers that can't keep a logsheet dry with yet another poor quality container? Are you helping to keep alive poor quality cache experiences like park & grab film canisters in ho-hum locations? Please consider if you are really doing a service to the community. I do take care in the caches I repair, and I use the proper lock n locks not the cheesy dollar store stuff. I like caching even with the gf lol, so when we come across a poor condition ( every thing is wet, water inside) cache we will replace all, new log, new bag, new swag, and if container leaks we will replace said container. I will then keep the wet contents and notify the co and ask what the co wants done with wet material, some have Said to throw out only a cppl wanted just the logs back. Every thing I do to someone's cache the co gets a full detailed email from me. I want the next cacher to have a good experience as well
  6. I don't think the co would pay for it since geocaching its supposed to free. I know logs are nothing for me to print in bulk and the containers can be gathered fairly cheaply, as for gas mileage well you would go for that cache any ways. And depending in area there should be a volunteer for almost every area Great! I've got a soggy loggy that you could replace for me. http://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC3ETK0_o-alphabet-soup I'm not in your area and this is just a discussion so I guess for now you will have to he active and fix your soggy log

  9. I would totally be up for this in my area, I already do. When the gf and I go out we check the logs if any one says wet log or bad cache we prepare for it and fix it up then notify the co of said changes I carry a "repair kit" new logs different sizes and baggies
  10. This will fully be up to the co. The co will have the option to contact the maintenance guy
  11. Maybe they moved and just figured to leave it cause they are not around to maintain it, thats the reason for a maintenance guy, that co can say hay I no longer live there or am not able to get to it, will you go and fix it for me
  12. I already travel with a repair kit I. E. new logs, all sizes, new bags all sizes and a cppl pencils. I have gone as far as replacing a lock n lock. But that's just when I go to get new caches, but what about the caches I've found. They will need maintenance after I'm gone. So this is where the co could contact free of charge of course and get them to maintenance it for them. Also the maintenance person should have a separate account and shouldn't be able to log the find under said account. But should be able to log it under their normal account. I have seen logs dated months that either log is wet or cache itself is no longer in good condition.
  13. I see a lot of caches get archived and a lot of dnf and some poorly maintained logs. Do you think it would be good to have a cacher as a maintenance person. After a couple needs maintenance or dnfs the co might not be able to get out to repair caches. So the co would know their cache needs work but can't get to it, they then email a maintenance guy who then goes and performs said maintenance when needed.
  14. I was grabbing a cache at night it was in a parking lot light fixture. I looked for a min and didn't find it, as I was grabbing my phone to check the recent logs a cop came into the parking lot with lights flashing, pulls up quick to me and says,"hey what you doing here". I was startled at first, didn't know what to say so I said looking at my phone,"texting sir, light helps see better." His response ,"that's not what I just seen, what did you do to this light?" So I smiled and said," geocaching". "Oh that's it?, my wife geocaches, is there one here?" And sure enough I showed him the cache and he said," hey great find, ill let my wife know, have fun caching" and just like that he left. I got a signed log and he gets to brag of a cache to his wife, win win
  15. ....NO WAY.... My favorite find is an Ammo Can cache! I'm sure I am NOT ALONE! I like finding ammo cans and seriously stubbing your toe? Why u wearing flip flops in the woods?
  16. Wow didn't even see that, thanks a lot that option will be very handy.
