+mypobox Posted June 16, 2010 Share Posted June 16, 2010 I'm new to this hobby and I'm not sure if I'm out of line here but I just want to see if others agree. Is the point of geocaching to get out and enjoy nature and offer a fun tracking challenge for adults and kids or is the point to hide your cache and make it impossible to find to prove some kinda alpha male right of passage. I get hiding a cache well to protect it from mugals but what I'll never understand is why the heck some idiot would hide a cache that is a 2 mile hike through terrible terrain and then another 1000 ft off of the path. It would never be discovered by accident. Its like the whole point was to make it hard to find just to prove something. The area was total sticker bushes and high ferns. You would need to level the area just to find it. No hints given, no obvious markers to where it might be. Just a complete waste of time. Well all its proved is that no one goes to it. Its been over a year since it was found. Where is the fun in that ?? Is this what the hobby is about ? Quote Link to comment
