Found It = Didn't Find It

I have seen a rather experienced cacher log that they were at a cache.  I was at this cache after.  I did not see the log entry.  I thought perhaps they forgot.  this happened several times.  I wont confront them but it seems a bit strange to me as to why they would go and then not log???

They weren't at the cache, they just logged online to get the added smiley.  I've seen it happen several times, usually by those with higher (10,000+) find counts.  Makes me wonder about their real find count.

I couldn't find anything either & Since this is so far out & has multiple DNFs I decided to replace this. If this is not OK please contact me.

I have a geocaching account since 2012 but have not logged any find because of the scarcity of caches in the Philippines.

When I went to visit here in Finland, I was delighted to see the map almost full of them.

I went on to go to the first cache nearest to my hotel and I was at ground zero already but I can't find anything (except a sleeping bird).

Hint says "magnetic", to which I assumed it was the ticket vendo machine where "magnetic striped" credit cards are used. I checked the vendo still can't find it.

Roamed around at both levels (the other side of the fence was higher ground) but still can't find it. After a good 1 hour of looking I logged it as DNF with a message that I will come back for it. I looked at my map for another cache and found my first ever. The find in itself is satisfying, of course the places where the caches are hidden are usually a good experience in itself but still it is the actual finding of the cache that I enjoy the most. After I got more and more caches even challenging ones, I come back to this cache and finally found it. Guess where? It's where the bird was sleeping. :) The bird was covering my view to the cache container.

One high 'find' Australian cacher immediately sprang to mind when I read that. I don't think they have ever written anything about a cache; just another generic log. I have also failed to see their name on the log.

Now I have a contribution on this type of log as I have seen one when checking caches near me (logging as found but admitting in the log details as did not actually finding the cache but just got to GZ):

I did not have this cache on my travel plan, as it seemed to be far off and doesn't have good records.
But today I was visiting Pagsanjan Falls together with innovared, and so we were just around the corner and decided to take a small detour to visit this cache.
At first, we suspected another sideroad from the main road and walked a steep way down to the river, bringing us further away from GZ but to a beautiful spot.
Then we got the right turn and arrived at a deserted resort area. 
Quickly after getting out of the car, someone turned up and clearly stated that no photos are allowed.
We didn't want to get into any discussion and left the spot.

Anyway, as we tried our best to find the box, and given the remoteness of this place, we decided to log this still as a "found".

And here's another one from the same cache. Looks like it is quite common to those with high find counts.

We planned the trip to Pagsanjan/Cavinti Falls for quite some time. But only yesterday did I look on the GC map and was positively surprised: There is a cache to be found.
On our way back from the falls, I was able to convice my party to make a little stop. We searched the area but did not find the container. However, I dare to log as find as I have been "here".

Maraming salamat for the nice surprise along the way to/from the falls.
