+Mick McPhee Posted June 10, 2017 Share Posted June 10, 2017 I have been a member since 2003. I have placed 91 caches in SW Colorado. We have lots of cachers both domestic and foreign who visit Mesa Verde National Park. I like to place large caches where one can leave trackables as well exchange SWAG, especially for the kids. I have purchased about two dozen plastic "tool box" sized containers. I have placed lots of SWAG including strings of beads, marbles, small toys, dice, plastic animals or dinosaurs, foreign coins, polished rocks, fool's gold, etc. But when I go back to replace a log or check on the condition of the cache I find gum wrappers, old business cards, scraps of fabric, rusty bolts, grungy paper, broken toys, used tickets, bottle caps, etc. Nothing of value or worth taking in trade. It seems to me the fun of geocaching for the kids is really being destroyed by inconsiderate slobs who call themselves geocachers. Has anyone else been experiencing this? There seems to be an increase in the number of cachers who just want to boost the number of caches they find. They are respectful, report their findings, and send comments on how they liked the cache or the Cowboy stories I write for each cache. To those I salute you. To those who trash my caches, well I got another response inappropriate to describe here. Quote Link to comment
