On Sunday the 4th of February, 2007, I was informed , by email, that a log on my recently published geocache, "Deliverys Out Back" had a request to Archive.
After reading the post and checking the other logs on the caches web page, I was infromed that the Portsmouth Police department had confiscated the cache.
Being the type of person I am, I quicky responed by making a STUPID post in the forums, and sounding like a ranting child.
I was not aware, at that time, how serious my mistake was.
I was wrong for that post and wrong in assuming that the Police department had blown everything out of proportion.
I was wrong in assuming that I could place a cache where I did.
Rules are rules and, as with EVERY GAME, there are rules. If you break the rules, you get penalized.
I broke the rules, I got penalized.
With experience comes knowledge.
Live and learn.
I have done several interviews and in each one I have expressed my regret for making the mistake I made. I simply didnt follow the rules!
I archived/disabeled all of my caches so that I could review them or archive them for good.
The ones that I felt didnt follow the rules were then archived and I went to retrive them.
My very first cache that I placed, "Bass Chaz #1 Cache" was missing.
I went to the forums and found a thread that had pictures of where the cache was, and I assume that someone took it upon themselves to remove the container on their own.
This is theft.
This is also a game..
I would like to have the log of this cache as a momento and reminder..
Thank you to those who have sent me emails in support and thank you to all the others for a lesson I would have learned sooner or later.
