+sbell111 Posted December 29, 2003 Share Posted December 29, 2003 (You typed other stuff up here) Of course not, otherwise you would be agreeing with me. I'm not sure what your caching experience is, but haven't you ever gone after a cache where your approach was unique? Maybe you found something interesting along the way because of your way in? Maybe you were really satisfied with the hike and felt really good about that smiley next to your name in your log. Well imagine that same cache now has parking coordinates a couple hundred feet away, and everyone else just drives up, hops out to log the cache and then drives away. Yep, they don't even have to make the same return trip to the car that you did. I would call that cheapened. (You typed other stuff here) I don't know what his experience is either, but I know what mine is. I still disagree with you. A person places a cache to show you what he wants you to see. If you explore beyond that, more the better. Your argument that suggested parking places will cheapen the cache experience, is not correct in my opinion. As already stated, one needs not use suggested parking (or hints, or maps, or cars, or public transportation, or a GPSr) to play this game. One is free to pull up the newest cache in the state and walk out their fron door to find it on foot. This would certainly make each cache a memorable experience. Jeremy has already stated that an additional coordinate field will be made available. This field will be for other uses than just parking, but it can be used for suggested parking also. (I assume that one of the other uses would be to share cool things in the area of the cache.) In my opinion, the bottom line is that this is a non-issue. A field is coming. This information is now available (in the description area) and will be available in the future presumably in a format one can load to a GPSr. It will not cause the end of the game (or even much of a change to it).
