+Crow-T-Robot Posted March 29, 2012 Share Posted March 29, 2012 Some cache owners with difficult caches prefer just the opposite. They don't want people to log a DNF every try. They know that lots of DNFs on a cache will often discourage others from looking. There are some high difficulty caches around here that I have logged the last four or five DNF's on. I sometimes wonder if adding another DNF by me is beneficial to anyone. I don't want to scare off any cachers from looking for the cache just because it seems to have my number. But, I searched for it and didn't find it, so DNF it is. Personally, I've never understood the mindset that if you don't find a cache, you've wasted your time. So, a cache with a string of DNF's, many cachers won't go looking for it because they don't want to waste their time. It's all geocaching, right? If I spend an hour (or two) looking for one cache, I've geocached for an hour. Sure, I'm disappointed in not making the find but I have yet to walk away after DNF'ing a difficult cache and felt as though I wasted my time. I LOVE breaking DNF strings...whether my own or ones by other cachers. Quote Link to comment
