+JG2011 Posted August 31, 2011 Share Posted August 31, 2011 (edited) Hi All, I have been doing some pretty heavy-duty geocaching recently (found over 100 caches in the past month), but I gotta tell ya, I can do without small caches in pine trees! I simply don't understand why so many people place their caches in these trees. I must have been to about 50 caches in the past month in Toronto that are hidden in pine/fir trees, and I think I may have found five of them! Why? Because I quickly decided that I'm not going to spend more than 30 seconds looking for them in the tree. I used to search & search for the cache, but would just end up skewered by a hundred or so pine needles and would have sap on my hands and in my hair. Not pleasant! So, for any of you cachers that are thinking of placing a new cache, all I ask is that if you are about to place a small one in a fir/pine tree, please think about it before you do. By moving it to any of the many other locations that are usually nearby you could save me and your fellow cachers a lot of pain in the future. Sorry for the rant, but it's been weighing on my mind for some time (usually as I pull pine needles out of my skin)! Happy caching! -- John Edited August 31, 2011 by ShJgNhAh11 Quote Link to comment
