OK... so I am going to vent on this because there is no rants and raves catogory here. I wouldn't be surprised if this forum gets deleted or locked, but here it goes.
I set out this morning to do geocaches in canada, my first few were DNF's after looking for 30+ minutes each and they have t/1 and d/1's so I am assuming they are missing.
I planned on doing 28 in total, I did 10. After 10 I gave up on the rest because I did not like what I was finding out.
1.) In Canada -- do they know what maintaining thier caches is?
Most had water in them, the logs were so wet I couldn't sign.
2.) I know they use the Km feature instead of Miles, but do they use some other odd way to do waypoints, most were off by 100+ feet... and my GPS was right on acuracy all day.
3.) The locations --- pathetic, pointless!! You walk .2 miles in the woods through thorns and spikes to dig up a cache full of water. There is nothing to see besides grass and trees. I did a few right off the roads, one was in a thorn bush, now what the hell...
I like geocaching because I like to find out new things -- exploring. I like to place geocaches in areas of INTEREST where you can a.) learn from something, b.) A history place, c.) Nice sites, etc.
I did 10 caches in 4 hours because most waypoints were so off I was getting annoyed. I don't think I am ever going to be caching in Canada again anytime soon. 3 of the caches were micros. All micros were wet and were in trees so hard to get to, it wasn't even worth going. One was on the ground with the cover off and the log book just on the ground...
I don't want to speak as a whole, because I am sure there must be some good caches in New Brunswick, but from what I expieranced today... I was NOT impressed.
