+Bull Moose Posted September 12, 2003 Share Posted September 12, 2003 Recently, I restocked the first geocache I ever put out. Now we all say "trade up" or at least "trade even" but we all know sooner or later there will be nothing left but junk. In this case I put in new stuff like Matchbox cars, safety whistles, baseball card packs, 2 packs of batteries, stuff like that, nothing fancy, but new stuff I bought at Wal-Mart. When I did maintenance the only thing of value in there was some loose change (maybe a buck) and a 15 minute phone card. They even took the pencil sharpener for the pencils used to log (but they left the pencils... weird.) This happened in about 25 users. Now that it's restocked I'll be interested to see how long it takes to return to nothing but garbage. My question is: What have you noticed as the rate of decay you have noticed? How many finds does it take for a cache to go from fully stocked to crap? Does the rate differ when a cache starts out with stuff from the dollar store vs more expensive items? Quote Link to comment
