+briansnat Posted April 6, 2009 Share Posted April 6, 2009 (edited) Having placed a few, I really cannot understand the hatred and name calling of "Lame" people give to lamp-post skirt hidden caches. Aside from the paranoia "Oh-My-GOD! You'll Get Electrocuted!" rants, why do people hate LPC's so much? I placed a series of them, called "That Was Easy!", (all hidden near Staples stores, Naturally. the reason I placed them like that.. Fast & Fun for Kids! Imagine the look on a youngster, when they find their first geocache. But not making it so super difficult as to place tons of rocks on top, high up in a tree they cannot reach it, inside a tree a good 5 miles into the woods. The hard-core cachers are up in arms over Advanced Logging Requirements, Let them have their rant. I want to know why some think LPC's are so bad? Perhaps you should consult some kids before you decide what is "fun" for them. Most kids I know, including my own, prefer caches large enough to have toys or other interesting items in them. LPCs are generally film cans, so I never hear, "Woo hoo!" when pulling up to one. It's always, "another light post...can we do something else?" Whenever we find an ammo can, regardless of how far we have to hike, I get a much better reaction from them. My experience has been the same when caching with my young nieces and nephews. The first few caches we found together were regular size and stocked with trinkets. They were like kids on Christmas morning when I opened the container. Then we found a micro. The look of disappointment on their faces was obvious. I tried to explain to them that it was all about the numbers and getting a smiley, but they didn't seem to understand. Silly kids, they were looking for a "treasure" and didn't realize that a slip of paper torn from a notebook is the true treasure because you get to increase your find count.
