cezanne Posted March 20, 2015 Share Posted March 20, 2015 (edited) It's not only how long those who have cached or how many. Its how they cache. Have they found different types or only easy trads? Differenct types of containers or just film canisters and ammo cans? I regard myself as old timer, but not as an experienced well rounded cacher and I have no interest into turning into the latter. I started geocaching in 2002 and there are many cachers who cache less than 2 years who are more ambitious, experienced and skilled when it comes to searching for/finding difficult hides. That's not at all what attracts me into geocaching. Okay, but this thread isn't about what brought you (the general you) to geocaching. It's about those with a certain amount of longevity with the game have brought to geocaching. Yes, I'm aware of that. I replied to jellis' post which was not about what someone brought to geocaching at all. As long as however it is not defined what old timer means, it is hard to answer the question. Someone who started in 2009 is not what I regard as old timer. If it's about experienced cachers, I would say I have not made a significant contribution at all. If it's about helping to start geocaching in an area, my answer would be a different one when it comes to my person. I have hidden caches and maintained them over a long time and I always tried to help those who asked me for help. I never tried to talk someone into geocaching and have mentioned geocaching to maybe 2-3 people not being cachers, not more. Edited March 20, 2015 by cezanne Quote Link to comment
