I’m new to the game and was recently asking a more experienced cacher about some of the non-traditional logs. I was surprised to hear them say that they disliked earthcaches and other types that require correspondence with the CO before credit can be claimed. In their experience, very few CO *ever* respond back, which was a surprising and disheartening thing for me to hear. This cacher also gave advice:
When that person finds/solves such a cache, they will give the CO 1 week to respond. If there is no response, the cacher feels justified in claiming the smiley without the CO’s permission.
Anyway, today I sent in my first earthcache and also a multi-cache that required CO confirmation to log it. I put both into a list to keep track of them.
If you were me, what would you do if return correspondence didn’t come? Consider general etiquette and then also the special circumstances of the current event that will end soon.....
