Archive or Change Coords?

Hi y'all, (or, as my southern-born wife has informed me: "ya'll". Go figure.)

 

Urban Sprawl has started encroaching on my Vid.Ex. cache and it's little patch of woods is now in the midst of some sort of road construction. icon_rolleyes.gif

So, I need to move it.

It's been asked before, but I'll asked again: Is it best to archive Vid.Ex. and create a new VidEx2 cache page, or just update the exisiting page with new coords and a note that it's been moved? I'm leaning toward archiving, since a box of stuff does not a cache make, right?

It depends. I lean towards starting a new cache page if you're going to be moving it a significant distance from the current cache location. If it's just a few feet away then keep the same page.

 

The reasoning is if it is a different location then it'll be a new experience for all the area cachers and with a new cache page, they can go log another find with no qualms.

I say archive the current cache, and just create a new one once you place it elsewhere. I was wondering how long it would last over there now that they have started all the construction. Looking forward to finding it again in its new home, wherever that winds up being.

I agree with the others, even though it seems I'm not following my own advice. My 'good fortune' cache was attempted by a few people but not found. The area it was in was not conducive to the theme of the cache, so although I've completely changed the description and location I've not archived it. Only one person was able to find it's old location so I didn't think it warranted a re-post. If a few people had found it, I'd re-post so that they could re-find it properly.

I just discovered my Borg Woods cache has been stolen icon_confused.gif (theres evidence of a lot of drinking in the area, so i think I know what happened... the wind triggered the rube goldberg geocahing machine, and some idiot with a beer found it & walked off with it... sigh icon_mad.gif )

 

any how I was wondering the same question, basically figured exactly what everyone else here was suggesting, so I know I ahd the right idea. Thanks for all the feedback this post has received. Course, i found a cool spot not 5 feet away from the original, hell I could probably leave the coordinates as they are.... icon_wink.gif

 

Then again I probably will move it deeped into the woods & farther off the trail...
