+Happy Bubbles Posted January 28, 2009 Share Posted January 28, 2009 I live in a rural area in Japan, and I'm surely the only geocacher for miles and miles around. If I want to go find caches hidden by someone besides myself I need to travel at least three hours. I've hidden three caches around here - the oldest has been found twice in about two years, and the only person to find the other two is my mom, who came to visit me last summer. I try to hide well thought-out caches with decent swag, and keep them well maintained. But I'm really bummed out by the fact that no one's finding them. I'm tempted to put out some new ones and hope that the lure of some potential FTFs will bring cachers to my area. I've got a number of locations in mind; a cool old abandoned shrine, an out of the way forest path lined with hundreds of Buddhist statues, a place overlooking the river where some endangered storks hang out, or maybe a multi along a hiking loop that's lined with dozens of lovely waterfalls . . . But if I do hide some more and those also go unfound, I'll be even more depressed. Any thoughts? Anyone else have a similar situation? Quote Link to comment
