little more info from baja clan:
When I found out he was moving, I offered to adopt some of his
caches, but I wasn't specific as to which ones. I also made the
offer before he moved/during his move. He seemed interested, but
then I never heard back from him a second time. I think this was
more due to the nature of moving than lack of interest on his part.
He was good about answering questions I had when I first moved here.
I will email him again and note that several of his caches have been
in need of maintenance for a while, but they seem to have resolved
themselves for the most part. I will also note that several of us
have been unofficially watching his caches and are willing to
formally adopt them for him if he is interested.
Ken, which ones are you interested in? I was thinking that the Burke
Park caches might be nice for Team RJJO to adopt (if they are
interested--I haven't discussed with them), at least the ones on the
west side of the lake closer to parking. They would be easy for them
to maintain even with the little ones in tow. I watch the ones in
Fountainhead and have just added the ones in Leesylvania to my
watchlist. Rufnredy and I plan to do some of the Fountainhead caches
in the next month or two, so I will try to bring repair/replacements
as needed. They really aren't that close to me by the time I drive
all the way around the reservoir, though, so I don't know if I would
be interested in officially adopting them, although I would hate to
see them go away. There is a cacher near me named H2OJunky who has a
kayak and might be interested in adopting the Fountainhead caches
that are near the water.
Koz are you interested in adopting any of these caches? I thought
Donbert or TeamWeathergirl might take the ones in Newington and
perhaps FlyingMoose might take the Scotts Run ones and maybe Tysons?
Just some thoughts. If you let me know your thoughts, I can include
them in the email to JoeCthulhu.
Koz, did you post this discussion to the NE forums? If not, perhaps
you should wait. I think it is a local matter that we can deal with
on our own. If VA Reviewer sees a potential problem, he might do
something drastic before we have a chance to.
Just my 2¢.....
