+Clan Ferguson Posted September 24, 2002 Share Posted September 24, 2002 Attention the following is my opinion not a personal attack on anyone. If you TNLN weather alone or in a group, your not geocaching. quote: As quoted from the geocaching.com FAQWhat are the rules in Geocaching? Geocaching is a relatively new phenomenon. Therefore, the rules are very simple: 1. Take something from the cache 2. Leave something in the cache 3. Write about it in the logbook Take and Leave that's what I am getting at. Why or what you take or leave is up to you. We do it as a marker of the journey. Kind of an monument to that cache and the adventure associated with it. We try to choose things that represent the cache, the location or some bit of the adventure. Our third cache was ravaged by anamils and weather so we took a pocket poncho with teeth marks in it. When we did a particulary dificult cache "ahh ahh MARKWELL" We took a small puzzle. you get the idea. We keep them in a box along with a card describing where it was retrived. We bring this out when we can't go caching so we can remanice or when people ask us what caching is all about. I consider myself a bit of a purist. I always trade and I normally only hunt Normals and Multi Normals. I feel if we're not trading we might as well call this letter boxing. and just sign logs QJLWBS ( a joke my brother is fond of. It means "Quit Job, Left Wife, Bought Stamp" It was a refernece to our addiction and how we think the high finders are doing it) I feel part of the degratation of a cache is that we nobody is willing to trade, then other folks after reading several TNLN in the log book, think there is no point in it, so they just hork the good stuff before its gone. then people come along and see nothing worth trading for then TNLN. and soon finders are complaining about the cache and people leaving trash in a cache. Here's what I ask of TNLNer out there. Please trade even if that means buying one thing from the dollar store and trading for something in the cache then taking that to trade at the next cache. you don't have to keep it. Sort of a distrubit the wealth thing. So please... Trade up or trade down I don't care Just Trade. Cache On!! James "Big Dog" -Clan Ferguson Quote Link to comment
