+Polaris1000 Posted October 19, 2006 Share Posted October 19, 2006 I live in SE PA and my young son and I have been geocaching since May 2006. Lately a very large percentage of the new caches issued in my area (zip 19426) have been "micros". I can understand hiding micros in busy public places but containers smaller than an inch high are showing up in densely wooded areas where the GPS reception is accurate to 30 feet or worse. Micros are not much fun for kids, as they contain no "geo-loot". They also result in a higher percentage of DNFs, which are a disappointing turn-off to a kid. If my son loses interest in geocaching, we will abandon this hobby, pull the caches we have out there, and find some other way to spend our time together. The current rules say - there are no rules about cache container size limitations, but should there be? Quote Link to comment
