+Cool Cow Cachers Posted September 19, 2010 Share Posted September 19, 2010 Yesterday while caching in a local park, (one I knew about but had never visited), I hauled out so much trash from the trails and four cache sights my arms were getting tired carrying it all out. At one particular sight I found two rather unique pieces of trash; a piece of PVC pipe and a plastic golf ball. I picked them up of course and hauled them out along with two bags full of glass bottles and cans. Not to mention more latex gloves than I could count. (What goes on in this park?) Later as I was looking back in the logs for that cache, I came across this passage from a little over a month ago: "I did however find a penny on the forest floor and a plastic practice golf ball along with lots of homeless items tossed about. A plastic PVC pipe, several bottles, etc... This cache sight was well off the beaten path and required a bit of bushwhacking to get to. So I wonder, why would someone (a geocacher) hike all the way back in there and leave this stuff? I have found myself at times without a trash bag but they are now a permanent part of my TOTT pack. But at least pick up something on the way don't you think? Let's all take the higher ground and make our world better for all! Quote Link to comment
