+PUR24KARET Posted May 18, 2008 Share Posted May 18, 2008 What was not mentioned in the below post was that the Cacher knew where the cache was from knowing one of the owners and therefore knew more than most cachers about where the final would be. Is is not fair to drive to the final and take one of the nice prizes while another group has spent two days 12-14 hours working the cache. If you want to find a regular cache then go find one, if you want a MULTI then work it! It is a given to work the multi especailly when this cache was a 5/5 and took months and tons of sweat energy and money to put together. Now does that make a difference?????? My apologies for resurrecting a four-year old thread, but I couldn't find another that directly addressed what I wanted to ask. (If someone can direct me that way, great!) A new cache pops up in my area and it looks like an epic adventure based on a well-known TV series. At the first stage a book is provided with information on the seventeen "episodes", many with seemingly intricate puzzles to solve and a couple that will have to be completed at night. After a complete read of the book I discover that the location of the final cache is pretty darn obvious so make the 40 mile round-trip drive, find the cache, sign the logbook, and swap some trackables. I also send an email to the cache owner letting them know what I did, how I did it, and promising to complete all of the other stages in the near future and in the company of a couple of friends. The cache was found by two cachers later that day who completed all episodes, some in the company of the cache owner. My Find log gets deleted by the cache owner who claims that they were getting flak. (Quotes from emails include, "It was not fair to the group who spent two days searching and locating each episode." and "I was put in a bad situation with other cachers being not to happy about it being there ,so I removed it!") At the time I signed the logbook there was nothing on the cache page about having to find all episodes in order to find the cache, but it now contains, "YOU MUST FIND ALL EPISODES TO LOG THIS CACHE! IT IS A REQUIREMENT!" In the big picture this is no big deal. I plan to find all of the episodes when time allows. (The two who completed all 17 episodes took about 14 hours.) I know that a cache owner has much power and latitude with their caches, but should my "Find" have been deleted? Was my "Find" legitimate? Quote Link to comment
