+ohgr Posted March 15, 2005 Share Posted March 15, 2005 Bear with the first part of the story as it all relates..... Ok, so I go into my favorite down the street greasy hole in the wall Mexican restaurant and I'm waiting for my take out order. I look up to see the cash register wishing me "Good Afternoon!" ?? Nobody said good afternoon when I walked in, so I'm going to assume that the world has become so busy that we've now tasked machines to greet people for us. One of my geocaches was vandalized in a pretty nasty way over the last couple months. I just found out about it yesterday when I went up the mountain to check on it. As it hasn't been found in quite some time. The vandals used the camera in the cache to take pictures of themselves, both at the cache site and at home. They went so far as to take the cache box down the mountain to their house, take pictures of themselves, vandalize the box, and return it to exactly the same spot where they found it including the now full camera. This is no small hike, it's almost 2 miles one way, and it's not flat ground, it's steep. So they walked almost 8 miles for their fun. The other thing I don't understand is how they found it in the first place. It's way the hell out there, and their first log said they found it at approx. 9:45PM. I almost didn't find it myself in the daylight, and I'm the person who hid it! How do I know all of this. I now have pictures of all of them. I have a picture of their house, including address, and they logged their adventures in the cache's log book, and to top it all off, one of them left a school picture in the cache with a note on it stating that if any hot chicks found his picture in the cache they should call him, and he left his phone number. How stupid are kids nowadays? I now have pictures, an address, and phone number. Oh, also when they signed the log book, the used their first and last names. And now it get's weird. So after being greeted with the "Good Afternoon" from the cash register above, I decide to run across the parking lot instead of sitting to wait for my food, as this place usually takes 10 or 15 minutes to get it ready. I walk into the 7-11 for a Gatorade, There are 3 customers in the store including me. One customer was a good sized older man, and the other customer (besides me) was a kid who looked VERY familiar, being as I had just spent the previous day looking at his pictures he took with MY camera, from MY cache box. I really just wanted to wring his neck, but for one, I'm not fond of jail, and for two, I suspected that the older guy was his father. I just let it go and walked back over to the restaurant. As I sat waiting for my food, I could see the front of the 7-11 through the window, I watched as the kid came out and climbed on his bicycle and rode up the street to where I assume he lives as evidence seen in the pictures. My chance to at least hassle this kid had ridden away. I'm open to suggestions as to what I should do about this. Should I talk to the parents, assuming I can find the house? Should I blow it off to kids having a little fun? Should I leave a burning cache container on their front lawn with a note? Ohgr Quote Link to comment
