Whats a newbie to do? in General geocaching topics Posted August 26, 2006 I was going to hide a mini cache and then everbody says they are bad for geocaching so I hid a bigger one. Then one guy said you have to trade for stuff but you don’t. I resd that you don’t have to swap and you have to sign it but then someone said you don’t have do do that ether. I think Diabo is right and Quiggle but some of them realy make me mad. This is just a game the way you want to. Dude i have 2 micro's out there and they are log only bring you're own pen. there is nothing wrong with that. also i have placed traid items in caches big enough for traid items that didn't have any traid items. you can do that too. if you hide a 55 gallon berrel and just put a log book in it, then do it. or if you have an ammo can with CD's or DVD's you can do that. i still don't see why any one would tell you that that stuff is wrong. just play the way you would like to find stuff if people don't like it then they can move on to there next cache. me personaly don't like certin types of hides. i find them all the time, but cuz i don't like them just means i don't hide them that way. i sign the log, thank the owner, and move along. Hide em the way you like to find them. if some one don't like then tuff. there are plenty of people that will like it.
