+ArtieD Posted June 7, 2013 Share Posted June 7, 2013 Okay, here's a situation. Say you're at a geocaching event and the host releases coordinates for around a dozen new caches. You go out after said caches and do pretty well, picking up a few FTFs. You come across the next cache on your list and you see a couple people there looking for it. After exchanging a few pleasantries, you look for the cache yourself after hearing they have not found it yet. You almost immediately come across the cache in a spot nowhere near where the others are looking. You rightfully sign the FTF spot and hand it over to the other cachers as they come to where you are, let them sign it, put it back and then leave for the next one. I ask because I am catching flak over doing this very same thing some time ago. In this case, I logged FTF solo as I didn't feel they deserved it because they were not caching with me and they weren't even close to the hide when I found it. Some people thought I "cheated" this out of state duo out of a FTF, that I should have shared it and because I didn't it was "unsportsmanlike" and it made the local geocaching community look bad. Now...in such a situation, do you either claim the FTF for yourself alone or allow the other cachers to sign the FTF spot as well? Thoughts? Quote Link to comment
