+Team Dromomania Posted May 2, 2005 Share Posted May 2, 2005 In the mountians near me are three caches placed in 2002. I was the last to find them a little over a year ago. One was in very poor shape and I noted that in my log. Since that time a major fire went through the area and I think another may have been destroyed since the plastic container was in the path. Several logs by others have inquired of the owner about their condition. I have e-mailed the owner a couple of times directly. There have been no replies. His profile says he hasn't logged on since last November and he hasn't been active in placing or finding caches since 2002. I like the area and plan to do the 9 mile round trip 2000 ft climb hike to the caches in the near future to give the caches some service. Meanwhile, I don't want these caches to go away. But I don't want to "steal" them either by requesting transfer of ownership - at lest until I speak to the owner. Which brings me to my question: At what point does a cache become orphaned where one can take steps for new ownership without feeling guilty? Until then I'll be perfectly happy to do the housekeeping on them. Team Dromomania Quote Link to comment
