+StarBrand Posted August 30, 2007 Share Posted August 30, 2007 Last spring - 3 different teachers at 3 differnet schools in 3 different towns all "introduced" some of thier students to Geocaching by visiting some of my hides. Fast forward to present and 4 of my caches in those 3 towns have all been vandalized in one way or another. 1 was spray painted bright orange and had a note left behind with an arrow pointing to the cache. The note read - you can find here - NERD. 1 was emptied of all contents save for a replacement notebook full of teenage drawings and "ill mannered" language. The other 2 were emptied of swag and filled and resealed with water and notes that read "did you enjoy this?" All have been either archived or moved suffciently to be well hidden. My guess is that some of the teens introduced returned later to the sites they were shown. My question is: Would it be out of line to send a letter to these teachers or Schools to ask (beg) that they do not use my "real" caches for a classroom full of kids? I would even volunteer to come plant a temp cache and go over to do a presentation on Geocaching. How would you handle it? Quote Link to comment
