+Ma & Pa Posted May 3, 2004 Share Posted May 3, 2004 We did some geocaching in Virginia a few weeks ago and the geocaching was a joy. Most of the caches were hidden from prying eyes but when you got close, you could soon spot them. In my home area, however, there are a few cachers (some very prolific hiders) who place caches way off the beaten path and when you get close, you may end up spending a long time in a fruitless search because the tree cover affects the accuracy and the cache is hidden under one of many roots in the area, and then completely covered with dead leaves. I recently read a no find log where the person got very upset with the practice: "Even after reading all the instructions and comments it was a no go. There's something rude about hiding a film cartridge in dense forest when you can't get better than 10m accuracy. After reading all the past adventures/problems and no new hints, I'm not going after this one, sorry but it's not my idea of fun." I have heard that the cache belongs to the person who hides it, but are there etiquette rules, etc.?? Quote Link to comment
