+lostinjersey Posted March 6, 2002 Share Posted March 6, 2002 I noticed recently two caches that seemed IMHO too close. This cache was palced maybe a few hunderd yards from this one.. Although the park is sizable, the area suitable for hiking (and hiding a cache) is rather small. One trail perhaps 1/3 mile to 1/2 mile long at best. This didn't bother me per se, but i felt it was too close. But then the topic got close to home. In Oct I hid Harold's Home in the remains of the estate of John Ringling. It is mere yards from an old bridge which leads to an incredibly beautiful vista overlooking the Hudson River. Then two weeks ago this cache was hidden maybe 500 feet away. Bear in mind this park is 13 miles long. The other caches in the park are miles away. There is no lack of beautiful, scenic cache sights here. Although this person did throw a nod to me by calling it "A Walk to Harolds", it just seems like a lazy cache. I am just wondering how close people feel is too close, what if anything they've done, or if I even have a right to be annoyed. Might it draw more visitors to my cache? Sure. Did he name it after mine? Yes. Couldn't he have found a spot not so close to mine? Sure. Should he have? That's what I don't know. Feedback please. I'm still new at this & not entirely sure what the "protocol" is for this situation... TeamGwho Quote Link to comment
