+The GeoGadgets Team Posted June 13, 2002 Share Posted June 13, 2002 I live in the most beautiful place in the whole world! That said, many tourists and travelers pass through this area, either to visit here or on their way elsewhere. In the past month we have had two groups of people come to this area and place caches in close proximaty to one of our caches. One of the caches is practically across the street from ours and the latest one is within a half-mile, along the same trail. The closeness doesn't really bother me, but what does upset me is that neither of these groups bothered to LOOK for our cache! It is almost as though they are/were unaware of its existance. Maybe it is just me, but when I find out that cachers come to this area to cache-hunt and they walk or drive right past one of my caches, I get frustrated. Maybe it is just the long winter of near cache-inactivity on the part of anyone around here but us that makes me curious. A small point of bother: these folks couldn't have done any research at all into the area in which they were placing the cache. They just slapped it there and left town. "Well, I happen to be here, so I'll just leave this box of trinkets!" Who will maintain them? One of the groups lives in Illinois (I'm in No. Cal.) and the others live at least 100 miles from where they placed the cache. Do any of you get upset when you know that cachers have been in the area and didn't hit some of your caches that you know were right along their way? ---------- Lori aka: RedwoodRed KF6VFI "I don't get lost, I investigate alternative destinations."
