+Lighteye Posted February 24, 2006 Share Posted February 24, 2006 (edited) Ok folks, I would like some feedback on urban nano/micro bush dives. You KNOW what I am talking about. Mrs. Lighteye hunts urbans exclusively, therefore, I have to hunt them as well so we can play together. I have been to three hunts in the last week where the shrubbery is being utterly destroyed in the hunt for a cache. Nothing like seeing what fellow cachers will do in an attempt for a find. I don't so much blame them, as careless cache owners. True, those hunting are also at fault, but for crying out loud, enough urban destruction. Perhaps a "special" category for cache type with an added descriptor of "urban bush dive hell to be expected. You WILL destroy public and/or private property while on this hunt." One of them is next to a VERY expensive area of multi-million dollar homes overlooking the bay area waterfront. This one has been muggled apparently several times by an irate homeowner who was tired of the destruction. The cache owner simply replaces the cache and posts a note to the effect that it is back up again. I have pleaded with the owner of the cache to disable it and move it to an area under perhaps less scrutiny, and less likely to offend. I do not blame the muggler at all, but rather understand his issue with it, namely the wanton and inevitable destruction of nice shrubbery surrounding a nice piece of artwork with a great view in front of his house. My requests fell on deaf ears, as my emails aren't returned anymore, and the cache is active, the destruction continues. There are 3 miles of this waterfront area, and many other places for a hide. What a shoddy impression to give of the GC community with this one. I refused to go back after my first 2 DNFs at this area and seeing what was going on, as it just irked me. Am I being overly sensitive, or is a local experienced cacher just being obstinate becasue he has 2000+ finds? Thoughts.... I know you've all got them, and from what I've seen, you seem to share them freely. Out with it, folks! Edited February 24, 2006 by Mr. & Mrs. Lighteye Quote Link to comment
