Annoyed from England

I'm annoyed, my cache has been muggled and it hadn't even been published! ;) It was a multi with the final cache in some woods. I hid the ammo box full of decent swag including a 5,000,000 drachma banknote in a old tree. Then set up the clues (multi stages), so tonight I was going over there to check the coordinates one final time and it was gone, completely missing with no debris.

 

I put a contact telephone number and email address on the cache. I hope the muggles have a conscience and call/email me. I spent ages set up this cache and roughly £20 ($32, €23) on it.

 

I thought I would feel a little bit better posting here.

Don't give up. Replace the cache at the end but hide it better and make sure no muggles see you do it. I would pick a different place though.

 

What happens is that places you can think that would be a good place to hide a cache also might be a good place for a kid to hide in a game of "hide and seek".

Urban caches suffer from teenagers finding them while looking for a good place to hide their stash...or was that just my generation

The light dawns! NOW I know why I enjoy caching so much! I thought it had a familiar feel to it. My next hide is going to be in a toilet tank!!

I can so see that one. A porcelain throne set up in the woods with a GC in the tank, no muggle will touch that one.......... :P

Actually... we have got one like that here. I kid you not. Its way deep in the woods, too. The log is the TP.

I found a toilet cache in the woods in Germany the other day - a toilet bowl sitting in a hollow in the ground, with a wooden seat and lid, and camo on top of the lid. The cache description was full of very subtle toilet references which you didn't notice until you re-read it after having found the cache. Genius (although perhaps it was stretching the "do not bury caches" guideline a little :P). The kind of cache where you walk round with a huge grin on your face for the next hour.

I had my 1st attempt at a multi, muggled the same way.. Though, it was a pair of micros. The 2nd one got taken by misguided youths. Just recently, the cache I put to replace the 1st stage, got stolen as well.. (and another traditional micro further down the path.) the replacement cache had two travel bugs with more than 8000+ miles logged.. gone.

 

Yes, School is out, and misguided kids with nothing better to do than get out, and destroy, are out there now.. My 1st cache, just became a Graffiti book for some of those kids..

 

There is another thread, where someone in Florida found a TB Hotel cache, had the gall to take all the items off the chains, throw the items (and the chains) away, then even worse, put the geocoins and tags (Including a few "United For Diabetes" rings) up for auction on EBay. (the post on EBay has been removed, but no serious strike against the seller.)

I think that pretty much sums it up.
