+herrozerro Posted June 5, 2009 Share Posted June 5, 2009 Sounds a little selfish, and elitist, but its their deal, not mine. That takes you down a road to no challenging caches of any kind. Once we start placing all caches for the lowest common denominator then the hobby is truly done. I cache to be entertained. If there are no entertaining caches--or so few it might as well be--then the hobby would not be worth doing. Back to the original point. There was a "normal" cache that was hidden. The CO appeared to place it with the intent that it was easy to get and log. Then the CO denied someone a "find" because, though she found the cache, she was unable to reach it due to a physical "limtation". I personally think the CO was not being a very good person (not to offend you with language). I believe the CO was not acting in the good intent of the "game" and was taking an elitist stance. I don't know, but the way I'm reading this is you don't want "normal" to actually be "normal," but something less to include everyone. Again lowering the hobby to the least common denominator. I do believe we will be on the opposite sides of this issue. From your statements it sounds like you're the type of person who takes "compassion" to point that it would unduly burden the rest of us. I'm not that type of person. I believe in balance. I believe in signing the log. I don't particularly care if the failure is genetics or showing up sans pen. Sign the log or don't claim the find. I just had a thought. By being geocachers are we being elitist in the first place? I mean muggles are left out. Quote Link to comment
