+vagabundeos Posted June 2, 2004 Share Posted June 2, 2004 This topic probably has been hashed and re-hashed, but I'm relatively new to the sport, so I'm gonna say it anyway. I'm not old, and I'm not young. I'm one of the middle-aged geocachers who sometimes finds it very hard to traverse a mossy cliffside, or climb a tree, or scale a steep muddy embankment. Don't get me wrong, I love the sport, and love hunting in unusual places for caches....but sometimes I think some of these caches are hidden by US Navy Seals, or in the least a vengeful Gollum! Does anyone else find that some innocent looking caches, with a difficulty and terrain rating of 2, have you traversing slippery rocks and dancing on the edge of a precipice that would be out of the question for any cacher who has small children with them? Secondly, if someone is hiding a microcache in a heavily forested area, wouldn't a hint be in order since most GPSs lose accuracy in heavy tree cover? I don't mean to sound bitter or angry, I'm not, my wife and I are enjoying the sport immensely and are addicted to it, I just wanted to see how others feel about this. Quote Link to comment
