Us 5 Camp Posted July 9, 2002 Share Posted July 9, 2002 After reading the 1st three logs to a cache I've placed, I am considering relocating it. All three logs in the Kensington Runestone Cache not only mention mosquitos, they emphasize the ferocity of these pesky creatures. The cache isn't more than 40 - 60 feet off the trail and the ground cover isn't extremely thick, but the canopy is dense. I spent a lot of time trying to locate an area void of poison ivy and a higher area that may get some breeze. I also took time in getting good coordinates as the cover is very dense. The day I placed the cache there was a slight breeze and the bugs were very mild. This July 4th weekend the weather here was very humid, very still and very hot. I can imagine the bugs were HORRIBLE! My question is, I do have another alternate location in this same park, should I relocate the cache so soon after it's 1st finds? My alternate location would be less buggy and easier to find as the canopy is orders of magnitude less dense. My main concern is the 1st find posts scaring off traffic from an otherwise good caching park. What do you think? P.S. I guess there is a reason I've added a mosquito head net to my geocaching backpack! [This message was edited by Us 5 Camp on July 09, 2002 at 07:26 AM.] Quote Link to comment
