+softball29 Posted August 4, 2008 Share Posted August 4, 2008 This has become quite the interesting debate. I look at it this way -- and this is the personal way I do it. If I go to search for the cache and actually physically spend time looking and everything else at GZ, I post a DNF or found log. Easy enough. If I start to hike toward a cache and was still 500 feet or more from it or something and had to turn around because of something else? I wouldn't DNF it because I didn't search for it. That's no different than driving 5 miles toward a cache 6 miles away and getting a call and having to turn around and then DNFng it. However, I might post a note if it merits (ie: the other day I went for a cache we had DNFd before and it was filled with muggles, I posted a note saying we were going for it again and we couldn't go there because of the overflow of people). This, of course, is my personal preference. I would rather people DNF when they actually look for it, not just because they got close and something else came up or things like that. That's a note in my eyes. However, if someone does search and doesn't find, I wish they would ALWAYS post some sort of a DNF. It really does help people. I have friends who I have been trying to encourage to post DNFs. They feel bad about it, which I can't understand. It helps people and owners. Quote Link to comment
