Why MICROS are better. in General geocaching topics Posted August 15, 2008 Micros have changed the game and and ruined it for me. When I started geocaching there were fewer than 100 chaches in the whole state. The ones that were out there were in interesting places. I found lots of waterfalls, caves, geological oddities and local hideaways. Geocaching took me to interesting places off the beaten path. Now it takes me to a Wal-Mart parking lot for a game of hide and seek. Boring.
