+Korfus & Son Posted January 17, 2010 Share Posted January 17, 2010 I have noticed here in Milton, FL that MANY, MANY, MANY, of the caches seem to be placed with the cache owner(s) just getting one Lat. / Lon. reading, and many times if it is near where you park, they take the reading right there, even if the cache is 15 to 20 ft away! This is so annoying! Also, many people are placing these "mini" micro caches that are 1.5 inches x 1/2 inch in size and not saying if they are hanging in a tree, in / on the ground and 2 of those here are ones that have no hints and the Lat. / Lon. falls in the middle of the road ( and that is using 4 Garmin Rinos to quadruple check, 1 Rino 110, 2 rino 120's, and 1 rino 130 - that is almost $1,000 worth of GPS), and ALL of them show this one cache here in the middle of the road?? What is up with people not taking 30 to 40 minutes to properly get the coordinates for a cache??? That is the whole point, to put your cache where you say it is, sure you can hide it as well as you wish with all the camo tape you want, just put the right coordinates down!!! If people check the " I have read the ..." then they would have read to take the average of 3 (three) readings BEFORE placing the cache as active online! Come on people, I expect this from newbies, but I have noticed those that have been on here as long or longer than myself (2004) getting lazy and very sloppy with Lat. / Lon. lately. Please, anyone else noticing this happening more frequently in the past year or so? By all means, I welcome ALL constructive responses / critisism - (keyword constructive - so "stop whining" commentors can, well figure it out) Quote Link to comment
