+Coldgears Posted November 30, 2011 Share Posted November 30, 2011 Yeppers, This has been burning my butt for the last couple of days. Today was the last straw though. Someone was removing caches from the Medford NJ area, which is a short drive from me, and I have cached their a few times. Over the last few days, caches were dissappearing... "Did a maintenance check today, only to find three of the four stages missing. The hollow log hiding the final was also missing - that's not some kid finding the cache, that's someone's deliberate act of removing a cache. I think I know who, but why bother? It's just a game. Well, it was 8 years of fun. Archiving now." "This cache was removed by someone with an ax to grind. Too bad. Some people just don't know how to have fun. Arching now." "Yup. It's gone. Not sure why somebody would take a fake sprinkler head. Maybe we're another victim of the cache bandit, maybe they re-mulched. Our apologies to those that hunted in vain." That was okay. But now the guy is PUBLICALLY showing his displeasure. He writing Needs Archived notes, and saying, in his logs, that these are trash. "This piece of garbage has been disposed of. I am disappointed to discover that there are many who play this game and TRESPASS without any regard to the residents." "How does one come to the conclusion to TRESPASS though other people's backyards? IT should be OBVIOUS that it is only open to local residents." "THERE IS A SIGN WHICH READS: CRANBERRY LAKES CONDOMINIUMS PRIVATE PROPERTY RESIDENTS ONLY ANOTHER SIGN WHICH READS: PRIVATE PROPERTY NO TRESPASSING, SWIMMING, FISHING, BOATING ALL OFFENDERS WILL BE PROSECUTED TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW. THESE ARE NOT NEW SIGNS. HOW DIFFICULT IS THAT TO READ? DO ALL YOU PEOPLE ROUTINELY TRESPASS? PERHAPS I SHOULD REQUEST TO THE TOWN COUNCIL THAT THIS ENTIRE ACTIVITY SHOULD BE BANNED IN MEDFORD." "I have removed several pieces of trash from this game hidden on private property without permission and there will be more." From my understanding, there WAS adequate permission gained. It was explained IN THE DESCRIPTION of the cache. This guy has not read it, and seems to assume that it is trespassing. It would be a SHAME to have geocaching abolished in Medford. Is there anything that can be done? Quote Link to comment
