+Team Microdot Posted March 30, 2017 Share Posted March 30, 2017 I've never logged one of these brass caps or the YOSM in the UK and I'm not bothered if they stay or go. It does strike me though that the above log with brass cap replaced by geocache would read just as well and be equally valid and valuable. I have never been into locationless caches. However it seems to me that you miss an important aspect. I guess one of the features that attracted people in locationless caches is that everyone had to come up with new locations noone else has used for logging so far. That's quite different to visiting virtuals or waymarks (it's a bit like creating new waymarks within a category but this requires using another site and one is then in charge of the waymark and the logs gets split over all the waymarks in the category and moreover the same location can typically listed in different categories- it's not the same effect as having the chance to read through all the logs of a locationless cache). The German opencaching site offers a type of locationless cache and they are quite popular there and the map that can be created is very nice and it's quite different than to having physical caches at all these locations (apart from the fact that it's pretty unrealistic for many reasons to have caches at all these locations). Maybe the UK version could take over this cache type. Save yourself the effort - I'm not the slightest bit interested. Not you but maybe others. The last sentence was not specifically addressed to you but did not warrant a post of its own. The rest should explain that what you wrote above "just as well and equally valid and valuable" is not true in its generality for the reasons I provided. Now even less interested but glad you at least fixed your misquote Quote Link to comment
