Caches, and the ignorance of others...

Recommended Posts

Guest MaasNeotek

It's not possible. I mean, it's truly not possible.

 

Someone with a GPS in the Edmonton area has destroyed the game for everyone here.

 

Why? Who knows?

 

3 of 4 caches set by my group has been destroyed. Why? Who knows... A sense of strength and power? Perhaps. A sense of force? Perhaps.

 

Ignorant? You bet. By taking these caches, and removing their logs - the game loses meaning. So why would one do this? To be a 'big playah'? Why exactly would an individual intentionally seek with GPS, and destroy these caches?

 

I wish I knew. As of now, 3 of the 4 caches Building42 has placed have been destroyed (ID's 364,413,462) - As has any hope of building a game in this city. Thank you whoever you are, and enjoy the keychains... I hope they were worth it - Your soul probably won't suffer for it, but now you know that you are truly worthless. You may not have understood it before, but now, you know. You have proven to the world your value, and even if you never meet those you have offended, know that in your heart, you are worthless.

 

If you want to 'discuss' your adventures, by all means, drop me an email at neotek@hotmail.com

For those of you interested, Building42.com has updated their cache page at http://www.building42.com/geocaching with a short note to those who believe that raiding, destroying or otherwise damaging the GeoCache...

Unbelievable. It makes me wonder if "nolitter" was from Edmonton.

 

You mention that one of your 4 caches has survived. Is it more remote than the others? It sure would be nice to catch this person in the act if they try to raid the last one!

This is the one thing that can ruin the sport. I feel bad for all of you guys in that area. It really sucks that one idiot who is surely out just to get his jolly's would do something like this. If the person who has done this is reading the thread, know that its just a matter of time before someone sets you up to get caught. It will happen, just a matter of when.

I wish you guys luck and don't give up on the sport, I am sure that you will find out who has done this, and when you do I hope you wear large boots.

No word yet, we can't confirm or deny that the last cache has or hasn't been raided... we'll be checking this weekend.

I am glad to say I am a new geocher in Edmonton. I am sad to say that just as things were picking up out here, someone has decided to raid some of the first caches. I hope it is by chance that they have been found, and not a concerted effort to destroy. If they find and raid some of the more remote caches that will be a bad sign.

Who or what was this No-litter person, where did it show up? has anyone else out there run across this problem?

He appeared about two weeks ago in the "Getting Started" forum. Here's a link to the thread he began: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000106.html . Take a look at his second message -- he states that he will destroy any caches he finds. icon_frown.gif

I started a new thread for brainstorming on how to deal with GPS equipped raiders.

 

http://forums.Groundspeak.com/ubb/Forum2/HTML/000185.html

 

Hopefully as a group we can come up with something.

 

I want to get a cache or two into operation once I have the permissions I need, and I hope to not be replacing them constantly.
