+jahoadi and john Posted January 30, 2009 Share Posted January 30, 2009 (edited) Ever feel like you are too busy clearing out the caches close to home to have time to grab the caches a little further away that might be more fun? But yet, I like caches close to home, too. It's just getting so hard to keep up. I gave up on keeping up. A couple of years ago I had all 150 caches in Escondido cleared. Now there are ~150 more caches. So I'm saving them for times when I only feel like going out for an hour or so. Yeah, good case in point is my Santee home-zone because it includes MTRP. Just had five new hides pop up within a mile of my home coordinates. This zone is so saturated that the practice of archiving to make space for new hides has become common practice. On the other hand I was able to score five new finds including a FTF while on my way to Barnes & Noble today. It pleases me to see that many of the home-zone hides are being placed by new Geocachers. Imagine what it's like for newbies, where the heck can you find a place to hide a container in such a saturated zone? Of course I do count my blessings having survived the 2006 MTRP Cache War with my Geocaching interest intact. That engagement was a day-to-day grind for weeks; no, months on end. I should feel good about outlasting Cegrube but I actually miss that weezy, rheumy-eyed, knock-kneed old geezer. What I learned from that battle is that you can finally wear-down a retired U.S. Marine. Hi Carl, kiss-kiss. How's that new walker workin' out for y'? Harmon...are you saying you want me to hide some caches in your home-zone for ya? You know I will. In fact I have an idea. You ask, I hide...funny how that works! r/ your buddy Edited January 30, 2009 by jahoadi and john Quote Link to comment
