    Hmmm . . . I usually manage to find the hole without the cache container.

    I've put a dry sheet of paper with my log on it in wet caches. It's not the actual log, but it works for me. of course, if the cache is that wet, my log will probably be ruined by the time anyone checks it anyway.
    LOL! Dave, you're a purist, with very narrowly defined standards.

    I think the general drift of this thread is: did the cacher FIND the cache? If so, they should sign the log. There will be some cases where can't, for one VALID reason or another. The question then as to whether or not you claim a find is a personal one.

    My thinking is if I can't sign the log then I DON'T claim the find. There have been just a couple of instances where I have found the cache and not signed the log ( Frozen in the ground in the winter) or too many muggles around to actually sign it and I haven't claimed the find but that is just me. Just recently while caching in the Lewiston area we didn't find the cache and called the owner to tell him about it being missing and he insisted we claim the find even though it had been muggled. I still didn't claim the find. Each to his own I guess but that is MY personal choice.

    I've only claimed 2 caches where we were unable to sign a log with the cache owners permission. One was in Aroostook Cty, (weren't you with us Haffy?) where we found peices of the cache everywhere. The other I emailed the owner that the cache was missing and told him where it had been, size, writing on the wall etc. I signed a piece of paper, put in plastic bag and in the spot it went. Luckily, I've been able to get into everything else I've found.

    Yep I was there and remember we all signed the torn and wet log sheet and turned it in to Brian?

    Oh my . . . I wasn't even thinking that way . . . I meant I usually find all of the holes without the cache . . . and the ones that are full of live critters, trash, broken glass, etc.

    Default Team2hunt and I disagree

    This is a subject that T2h and I have been discussing lately. His navigator has his own caching name now. I think he should be able to go back and log, on the computer, all the caches he did with his father. Just the ones he was actually there. T2h says, "no, his name is not in the log."
    I have two logs in the Seattle area that my name couldn't get on. One was because a young couple was thoroughly enjoying themselves on a bench that had a cache under it (I did take a picture of the couple and the bench) and the other was a dog park. I could see the cache, but there were just too many muggles. I didn't have a dog... My chances of getting back there were not that great. Both times I e-mailed the owners and asked permission to claim it as a log. I also claimed a virtual because there was construction all around the plaque that I was suppose to get information off of. The owner was okay with that. He just wanted people to see the view. So, people have different opinions. I'm pretty loyal to having to sign the log.
