Found It = Didn't Find It

Recommended Posts

Found it 08/17/2014

found but couldn't get it out of its slot..tried everything to get it out of there, but after 10 minutes, I gave up...took a picture of it, hopefully that will suffice. SL, TFTC.

Personally I would count this one, I've had a few caches where they were wedged so tight that I nearly abandoned the attempt but I did actually make the find. Also being from Canada sometimes caches are frozen so they can't be signed. My rule of thumb is if I have my hands on the container, I've made the find (but signing the log if possible, obviously).

 

Anyways, here's one I saw the other day:

 

Couldn't find it but found the cedar tree...

Cache was hidden on a green box, which there was two of at GZ ...

 

The cache was still there as well ...

How about this one (NSW, Australia) that we noticed in the logs of a cache that we DNFed. The cache container was latter confirmed as missing, but that didn't stop this guy from logging a Find on it.

 

"The cache probably doesn't exist anymore but try telling these two little guys that after walking up the big hill. As good as found in my book"

This was one of my favorites when I found it in June 2013. It was recently archived.

 

After 6 DNFs and a NM:

Found it 05/22/2015

Coords had me in the street. Certain the cache is missing so I replaced it with a film canister where the hint looked like it took me.

 

Then 3 finds followed by 2 DNFs then this:

On a now archived cache (by reviewer because of non-responsive CO)

 

Needs Archived 18/11/2016 By xxxxx (Found=1965 Hidden=9, as of 21/12/2016)

It looks like this cache needs maintenance for about 9 months already.

 

A lot of logs are stating that the container is stuck in its hiding place and that the so-called 'finders' didn't actually sign the paper, but still are permitted to log the cache as a find.

 

Even the cache owner (and also owner of the restaurant with the same name as this cache?) doesn't seem to be able to retrieve the cache container, if my interpretation of the log by xyxyxyx on 2016-11-04 is correct...

CO and me exchanges experiences and even if I didn't find it I was allowed to log a found. Thanks CO.

Yet another frustrating day in ******* found 7out of 19 plus 2that we may be able to log due to seeing them but not being able to retrieve

Found the log sheet behind the ?????? But unable to retrieve to sign ,so if the co wants a photo can send

Came here tree times already. First time it was closed, second time gate was open but didn't find ******. Rechecked my solution at home and now, weeks later I tried again.

So I found everything, except the cache, even with the perfect hint from the CO. A neighbor who knew where the nano was hidden came to the rescue and didn't find the cache. So the nano is definitely gone.

Since I knew where to look I will wait for the CO to check before logging this as a found anyway.

Looked at this cache and the fact it hadn't been logged in over a yr and was requesting some sort of maintenance. Arrived at the GZ and zeroed in on the cords. Searched for a good 20-20 min but no luck. Looks like muggles have been camping out in the area and cache may have been lost. Had a spare container/log and dropped off at GZ. Contacted CO with update.

Typically once people start logging finds "on the velcro" or "on the string" most other will too, and once someone logs a DNF, then the herd follows.

But going back for some time, this shows some who "found" the string, and some who DNFed the cache:

Was reading about a cache in another thread and was curious about a certain log that was mentioned. Was just randomly selecting pages of logs in search of the log but instead, found these. The finding of this cache helps to complete other challenge caches so i figure this kind of logging has probably happened a few more times on it. Note the last log stating, "Thanks for maintaining this cache." :rolleyes:

We were along with a small group to make this find. We spotted several whitetail in the area including a nice racked buck.

Thanks for maintaining this cache.

 

Found it

09/10/2015

 

I'm not sure if what we found was the remains of the cache. We found a baglet with a business card enclosed at a GZ. The charred logs were scattered about like someone was looking for more. We signed the card and resealed the bag and left it there as the remains. We saw several whitetails in the area.

It was a cool day, refreshing after some very hot days. I was travelling with ##### through several states on a geocache adventure. We were hesitant to park at the waypoint, but decided the no parking symbol meant only in front of the gate. We set out through the plethora of grasshoppers and mosquitoes. We saw no muggles, but did see several deer who watched us for a while before bounding away. We followed the trail around, but didn't notice swan creek. There were horseprints in the sandy path and other evidence of their passing. We found the very obvious hiding spot the GPS units said it was. We found perhaps the remains of a prior container, a baglet with a card. I thought the card had fallen from the container and was all that was left, so we signed the card.

Based on the pictures, the description, some advice from someone who had found the cache, and a ranger's business card that we found at ground zero, we think the cache may have been removed. We'll contact the owner with the information found on the business card shortly.

Got notification of a new cache not far from work on Wednesday morning. Pulled up the cache page after I knocked off to see if it was worth putting 3/4 of an hour into for a possible FTF. Found the following as the 3rd log on the page:

 

Hi it's the owner took my sister out to find it she got it quickly

 

So yes it was a find on a cache that was there but on their own cache for another person....

Here's a new variation:

 

In the past, she has only loaded individual caches, and, if she could not find them, marked them as "Found" on the GPS, just to get rid of them off the screen.

Sounds like she is just getting them off her gpsr so that they don't distract her (maybe she just doesn't know how to delete them individually). Bet she isn't logging online finds on these.

Cache is a high difficulty Trad with half the coords for a bonus. Not only did they place a throwdown instead of logging a DNF, but those who came after them quickly found their throwdown, and hence missed out on the coord data.

 

(fake) Found it!

We searched for quite a long time, hoping to at least come up with the log but it has been quite a while since the cache was last found and the log and container remains appear to be gone. We placed a new log in a plastic bag and put that into a pill bottle and tucked it into place.

 

(Really) Found it!

This was the first stop and we found both containers. We started thinking we would only find the throw down and then need help with the coordinates for the final, but we found the original. We removed the throw down leaving the original in its hiding place. All is well now. TFTC SL

Wow, what a fascinating thread. It never occurred to me to log a find if I didn't actually find it. I mentioned it to geo-hubby who screwed up his face and said, "Oh really?" He was as surprised as me. Why bother?

But I'll keep this in mind. We're about to set a few caches in conjunction with a local history project. Most will be easy - the idea is to give people local info - but am planning 1 slightly more difficult puzzle cache so we'll definitely keep an eye on the logs.

This thread has given me some great laughs, thank you. I'm glad it's not just me who gets frustrated by people logging finds when they clearly haven't found it. There's an infamous cacher in Madrid who does something similar. He'll post a DNF at first, but once it's clear that the owner isn't going to perform maintenance or it's going to be archived, he logs a found. At the end of the day, it's all about the numbers!

Lid loggers. No cache.

In over a year not one person entered a Needs Maintenance or Archive post. Log the lid, get a smiley.

Headed out early this morning to hit a bunch of cemetery caches and the Geo(he)Art southwest of Springfield. In total I hit about 40 cemeteries and the art, plus a few other caches that were along my path. I picked up about 80 finds on this beautiful day before heading home. As always, I had a great time cruising the countryside and jamming. TFTCSL

Found cache or at least the part of the cache. Lid still at location but container missing. We had fun hiking along the trail through the snow. TFTC

I have been by this area many times. I figured I would hike during the winter. Today was the day. Had great fun hiking the old tracks in the snow. Found cache lid only. TFTC. :)

Which is why this now exists <_<

This cache would not have triggered a Health Score alert because cachers continued logging it as "Found". It appeared to be a healthy cache based on those fake finds.

Is it even possible to find 80 caches in a day? I did an, admittedly rough, back of envelope calculation and reckon at an absolute minimum this would take 10 hours. And that doesn't include stopping for anything. Even if it is technically possible, what's the point? Isn't it better to find fewer but enjoy and appreciate the locations? I do see that for some people it's all about the numbers but are they kidding anyone other than themselves?

Off topic but - we did over 200 in one day on a power trail. Got to where it wasn't fun, just another match holder.

7/3/16, 9:08 AM Find #6941

----------- ----- 07/16/16

 

Sure this was either a quick find, or was a not so quick find while attending ----- Been 20 plus years since back here in -----, lot a time for changes! Some nostalgic memories, and now finally can add ----- to the geo map. Even, though it was found. Found it perhaps around a lot, or a rail, on a trail, perhaps a clever if not evil pebble or twisted bubble gum hide, or hung on a fence, in a cedar, or even a fine pine.

 

Sure an arrow and digits were utilized, sure this could have been a memorable one as well, but just no to sure in certain cases, as such. Imagine though it was just a quick in out operation, as of late this seems to be the case. Though have to say, was it rusted, trusted the title, say, perhaps so. Rust, a must for signs of age. Left the cage, love sage, and have to state, was it that quick? Perhaps maybe a fake rock, a cartoon character, or maybe a tunnel hide, maybe even perhaps in a tree, under a bench, in a cave, or crevice, or an evil rock pile, perhaps hidden snug in a cedar tree, or maybe even found it in an evil fake rock, amongst boulders and pebbles. All is not really known at this juncture.

 

Have to say, mega events are packed full of fun in the sun, was so many things and places to visit, and to be quite precise , time is rather a blur. Complicated it was, or was not, so one could say that was the true case. Well cut and paste in haste, not to waste much time, as time has already flown by. Scribbled and found it, all there is to say, precious moments in time, scribbled, and dashed, now time to catch up, so a little time, much to cut and paste will have to suffice.

Not really a container, just a couple of bolts and piece of paper. We signed it, TFTC SL 😃🍀

Container is missing and all we found was a piece of paper held down by some bolts. I didn't have a container with me or I would have put one there... SL.

Beautiful day to be out caching our way to ----- City. Quick and easy find. No log book but we did find a piece of paper to log it. Thanks for the Cache.

Came down for the ------- Festival and did a bit of geocaching.

Did not find this one. There is some damage to an area where this might have been.

This one I believe has been muggled. Most likely by the person who left their card. I signed the back and dated it 2/29/16. Happy Leap Day and TFTC!!

4 months of logging "a lid" as find. No reaction by CO who found a cache in the last few days but has not visited the website since January.

Nice walk in the xyxyxy area. Not all caches were found. Thanks for placing and maintaining.

Will give a favorite for the bonus.

Nice weather to be caching.

Too bad some codes were missing so we couldn't solve the final.

Archive 16/3/2017 By owner (Found=4383)

Archived because the neighbor took the cache away.

Thanks to the cacher who destroyed the bench.

 

Cache was removed March 15th but found March 16th and 21st... strange... ;)

Last two logs on a cache near my new home:

 

(Logs roughly translated from Dutch & German)

 

Found it 2017-03-15 by CCC (793 finds)

We'll log this one, because it most likely has been destroyed. A picture has been sent.

 

Found it 2017-03-14 by FFF (2990 finds)

Quickly found the clue at WP1. At the final we found a possible hiding place and a few other things, but no cache. We sent a foto to the CO and log this as a find. If that's unwanted, please delete this log.

There's also a third log from FFF2, who caches together with FFF.

 

Found it 2017-03-14 by FFF2 (2993 finds)

TFTC/Very nice cache

 

It's just annoying; it seems the cache is gone, I'm hoping the CO actually reads the logs on his caches and knows there might be a problem with this one...

We "found" something similar on the weekend. Location was obvious. Last 2 logs didn't find anything but logged it as a find. The place was a dump (quite literally) and although we found plenty of potential hiding places we couldn't find anything that resembled anything other than rubbish. Logged a DNF and a comment about the revolting location, though I don't think the CO is actively watching this one. Won't be going back there even if it's verified that the cache is there or that it's been replaced.

 

Can I ask what the protocol is if someone logs a find but doesn't sign the log? Is it polite to ask them to remove it or does the CO just do it for them?
