ashnikes Posted May 31, 2010 Share Posted May 31, 2010 In my neck of the woods in the few days that I have been caching (i think i need to start all my new topics this way so as to avoid the wrath of long time members) i have come across quite a few caches placed in locations that either did not have a trail before the cache was placed there or the trail was a lot smaller. Either there are some really big geocachers in my area, or there are a ton of them, or he people who play the game just keep treading in the same area, and the trail is super noticeable now. I guess there is little that can be done about this, as the sport kindof exploded, and all that traffic, even if its just one person at a time, eats away at mother nature after a while. so therefore, when my smartphone gps coordinates are all over the map, i can "cheat" by locating a heavily used trail in most cases, find logs nearly trampled, branches (not just twigs) twisted, and broke off, and just a general slew of dead plant life, and i can get pretty darn close to the prize. I understand this is the main reason people get in trouble geocaching, they just plain trash the place in some cases, and destroy the beautiful area the original hider intended people to see. Especially since some geocachers are more about the numbers, rather than the scenic tours, is there anything we can do about this? Quote Link to comment
