+Big Belle Posted June 7, 2007 Share Posted June 7, 2007 I'm just curious as to what the point is of being able to leave a maintenance note on a cache if the cache owner can just delete it and not maintain the cache? I'm in an area with a lot of very old caches, from long time cachers that have moved away. Now most of them have been adopted, but I find almost everyone of them needs some type of maintenance. In an area of harsh winters, in spring these are pretty damp and contents turn to mold quite quickly. I don't mind helping out, drying containers, bringing a few new containers, zip locs, log sheets ..... but is it really fair to have 3 or 4 hundred placed caches, then never maintain them? I was advised to post a maintenance note on one that I knew someone removed with the intent of replacing it, but when I spoke to him, said he wasn't gonna bother. So I made a maintence note, which was deleted by the owner, and this time, received a 'spoken down to' email. Last time he just deleted the note, and no comment. I've never been harsh about this, just really thought I was helping by letting the guy know the state of these. I realize now that I can just ignore this guys caches, but it brings the game down when you introduce the sport to new people, and they too, run into the same moldy caches. What gives?
