Pigman has struck!!

I don't like holding on to alot of TB at the same time for long. Because I have a PTB that I long in and out of all the caches I go to and that list of TBs to drop would get rather large.

 

Also it would piss me off if someone had my TB like that too.

In another thread, Jeremy has mentioned that the Pigman's account has been disabled. This probably explains why he no longer add his logs to the website, and maybe his habit of taking entire caches (instead of just travel bugs) is a result of this action. I don't know what can be done about this problem, but I'm willing to engage in discussion of ideas.

What causes folks to do these types of things - plundering caches, stealing TBs?

I just had one of my caches totally emptied, leaving the container as it was hidden.

 

We've had this crap in Dallas and Houston very recently, and I bet other areas have too.

 

Why?!?!

It's the weirdo factor I was talking about at the Tx. Challenge.

 

Remember: I was talking about the fact that I was amazed there wasn't one in the group, since we all met over the internet. I observed how normal everyone was; driving nice cars and dripping in hardware; myself included. We were all instantly friends. I was amazed. Then, when everything was winding down I mentioned a strange email that I got from that one guy and nearly everyone in the Houston area instantly knew who I was talking about. These are anti-social types that we will never see at our event caches. Some, I'm sure will never join, or they got an account to check profiles. I wouldn't just jump to to the conclusion that it's kids in every case. I hate to be a gloom and doom kinda person, but as I have some training in personality profiling, we are talking about predatory behavior. Food for thought...Myself, I bypass that guy's caches and don't touch is t-bugs.

Convert the caches in the area to "members only" caches. Talk to the cachers in your area. Just a thought.

 

I mentioned in another reply about this guy that he is exhibiting predatory behavior. That is not a good sign. Forums and cache pages are where he will get his jollies over the trouble he creates. Ask someone in law enforcement about this type of behavior and you may decide to travel out of his range to enjoy our little sport. The best thing anyone can do is pretend he doesn't exist. Keep replacing the caches quietly and don't give him the pleasure of knowing your displeasure.

Hmmm, interesting that this topic should pop up. I mentioned geocaching to one of the fellows I work with, and he immediately suggested doing what Pigman is doing. I didn't condone my coworker's suggestion.

 

Unfortunately I don't think there is much that can be done unless a "bait cache" is set up with a camera triggered by its disturbance. Then you can get a photo of Pigman, hopefully his face, and track him down and file a complaint. "Pigman: geocacher's most wanted!"

 

All of the caches which are easy to get to will probably eventually be raided by some jerk like this. If Pigman wants to fork over $35 and then continue to raid caches, he can do that. The only caches in his area which wouldn't be raided are ones which are multicache, and require a riddle or something to move on to the next spot. I'm guessing that something like that would be too much work for Pigman's attention level.

When office supplies, laptops, and cash come up missing, check that guys pockets. I'd love to give that guy a psyche test.

 

I mostly disagree with that last sentence. Although there is truth in it. All the cachers that I have met a pertty much social types. I agree that this is a sport and not just a game though. I've already lost 20 lbs. geocaching.

Snoogans, there is a difference between "for introverts" and "are introverts."

 

I just got done with KIDNK9 cache. Pigman or any of his ilk would never get to its end. I'm working on something which will be more difficult than this one, and there will not be any cheesy toys at the end of its trail!
