Missing breast cancer trackables

Started a few trackables  several years ago disappointed as they all seem to be missing. Likely picked up by geocachers and not moved along but kept instead. I wish people would learn what to do when finding these they are not cheap and disappointing when they aren’t moved along

I feel the biggest cause of attrition for TBs (certainly for ours) is them being picked up by newbies, who then stop caching altogether. This and the unexplained disappearance from a cache, which could be newbies too.... This can be offset to a degree by requesting the TB only be dropped off in multis or mystery caches/letterboxes...

Yeah... You've been around long enough to know the "goal" may never be met, but you'd like it to at least move once ...   :)

I think cachers are in too much of a hurry to look these days, and we're seeing more incorrect logs from long-time players as well.

All the big hoarders we know of were long-time premium members at the time too. 

We see the most kept are promotions, for some odd reason.  It even says to place them in a cache within two weeks.  We do.  

That's definitely cachers doing that, and the Michelin man tire gauges were all over ebay...  

I wouldn't blame it all on "newbies" though, as the "Duck Tales" we had was recently found in the same cache I placed it in two years earlier - by a newbie.  

 - But I'd guess it could be the "treasure" in in this "worlds largest treasure hunt", or taken in a huff when it's found that's not true.
