SeanCairns Posted July 18, 2018 Share Posted July 18, 2018 (edited) I don't geocache but I am a trail builder and I find a lot of caches hidden near the trails I have built. I've never had an issue with a cache before however I am constructing a new trail and discovered a cache in extremely rocky terrain, it was very well hidden with rocks covering the entire box to the point that you really couldn't even see the cache. Additionally, prior to clearing out the area where I was building trail, the area around the cache was completely impassable for 100' in any direction due to the density of undergrowth, even in the dead of winter it would have been nearly impossible to get to this cache without crawling on hands and knees through cedar branches and invasive honeysuckle. So either this cache is really old and pre-dates the invasives that have grown out of control in the past 5-10 years or it was placed after I opened the area up and made it accessible. The cache is pretty cool, well placed and fits well with the intended use of the area I am working in however it appears that absolutely no one has any interest in returning the cache to where they found it. Every time I go out it's laying on the ground fully exposed with only a couple of the latches closed, I keep dropping it back down in the slot between two boulders where I found it and covering it with rocks to no avail. So I'm wondering if perhaps this an old cache that is no longer used and the general public (non-geocachers) are stumbling across it and opening it out of curiosity? How can I figure out who owns the cache so I can work with them to move it? The cache does not show up on the map for me but its coordinates are roughly 38.991094, -94.796754.
