+CYBret Posted November 25, 2006 Share Posted November 25, 2006 (edited) I recently found a simple little roadside micro that has been hidden since September and found fourteen times. This one isn't rocket surgery, that's for sure. You barely have to get out of your car and the name pretty much gives away the location. All that considered, I pulled up and noticed that the coordinates are about 175 feet off (give or take a foot). I made note of this and posted my own coordinates in my log. But amazingly enough, none of the other finders have bothered to post coordinates and only one mentioned that their unit thought the cache was a little further away. The thing is, I've noticed this several times over the last few months. It seems to happen at a lot of very easy roadside micros. The kind of locations where you say, "Well, duh, it's got to be there" before you even stop the car. I've seen coordinates pretty far off (once even about 400 feet) and yet NO ONE mentions it in their logs or if they do it's just in passing. Is it just me? Has anyone else noticed this trend? Are we even bothering to use our GPS's any more when we pull up to caches like this? And most importantly...if this is starting to become the mentality on these "quick n' easy" finds, how soon will it be before someone exploits this trend and hides a very devious cache with a very misleading name and very accurate (but easily overlooked) coordinates? Hmmmmmm? Bret Edited November 25, 2006 by CYBret Quote Link to comment
