+carleenp Posted January 1, 2003 Share Posted January 1, 2003 I want to add more comments! quote:As far as the reply about preferring caches with a 10 mile hike included on each one, count me out, I've not the time nor the desire to hike 10 miles to every cache. What about those that are physically disabled and are not able to hike 10 miles? The drive to a wide spot in the road might be the only cache they are able to seek. Does this mean they should not be allowed to play? The rules don't require a 10 mile (or even .1 mile) hike! caches with long hikes involved tend to say so or are reflected in the rating. Easy caches are also reflected in the rating. I don't think anyone is against accessible caches for the disabled (there is a recent thread on this). Sure, some people want a hike and seek out those caches. Others don't and seek out other caches. It is ok for someone to prefer one over the other and the approval process doesn't seem to limit either kind. quote: Based on the comments here, I must be in the minority, so I guess it's time to rethink my interest in geocaching and go elsewhere. Well, you started the dialog and indicated in your post that you believed people would disagree with you. If you like caching, why quit just because some don't agree with you? You are not required to have a majority of people agree with you on a topic to be allowed to cache. If that were the case, half (or more, myself included) of the people posting here would quit caching! If you can't live in the framework of the rules here, feel free to try one of the other sites or start your own. But if you quit altogether because people disagree with you, I question whether you were really that interested to begin with. Quote Link to comment
