[FONT='Verdana','sans-serif']--Firefighterjake encourages you to go hide caches, “Bringing folks to a new place that they might never have seen or teaching them about some history or geology is part of the appeal to me, and reading the logs (especially the entertaining ones) can be pretty addictive.” [/FONT]
Maybe I am just lazy or the fact that I never even considered that someone would log illegitimately.
I think N1WTQ has not logged more caches that he has found then ones which he has logged (online). LOL
I'd much rather see the game stay as a fun activity and keep the competition out of it.
When I first started out I logged into the logbook as "momofals" which I wanted to be my trail name. I had already joined geocaching.com but didn't understand the difference because I hadn't loged on the computer yet. Of the 12 I did before logging only 3 got removed and all by the same owner. No email to me. Just removal.
I don't know if I'm going to do the caches again. I don't care about the numbers but I am a little sad that the owner would remove me off three caches with out saying something. I could have explained. Be new to the sport I didn't figure it out till months later when I was going into that area again and the caches I knew I had done came up without smiley faces.
Yes--I asked about it last week and they let me relist it. We hid it last Thursday and seeblue was FTF! thanks for asking!:D BTW I finally found that micro I was having such trouble with at Head Tide. Thank God--I have been able to sleep now!
