Cache adoption in General geocaching topics Posted January 10, 2014 Also--caches don't need saving. We could probably use MORE old caches archived. We need more new ones once we've found most of the ones in our area. Let the old multis be archived--that gives you the chance to create new ones, maybe they'll be better. Spoken like a true numbers grinder Old caches are what some of us cachers like to find. I don't want numbers, I want history. To me, nothing is better than finding an old cache, or better yet, an old original container/logbook. I agree with the OP. There should be a way to simply put caches up for adoption if the CO choose to do so. Maybe add adoption as a feature to the notifications function. I believe it would alleviate the abandonment issue, but not solve it completely.
