    Default Archived but available?

    There seem to be a large number of archived caches that may still be available. This is a partial list I have come up with. It seems bad to leave this junk sitting out in the woods since they will not be on most people's cache lists. They really should be removed. If anyone has any definite information about any of them, it should be posted on the cache page, and here too would be nice. There are many more, but I think gc.com shut me down temporarily, guess I was downloading faster than what's allowed.

    I do know about the Dyer Hutchison Farm cache as I thought that TRF and myself were the last ones to find it but it seems it never was removed as the owner contended as it was again found even after TRF and myself were there. It is kind of ironic too as the cache owner who hid the cache in very close proximity to a nice stone wall was very disappointed at cachers who had dismantled parts of the wall to find the cache. And here the owner had done something just as bad and left the cache there as geolitter. I even emailed the owner and assured them that not all cachers were that disrespectful of the land as some cachers had shown and even went as far as to apologize on their behalf for their behavior. Guess we should have removed the cache then had we had known it would still be there.

    I also thought the Field of Dreams cache had been removed long ago. It seems that maybe Attroll removed the ammo can from reading
    the description in his log but maybe not. The Cache Buccaneers were really gung ho at first but then they kind of left the face of the earth. Cameooooo even thought she would like to adopt their caches but they refused to let them go and they still haven't been to the site in quite some time.

    The Hallowell Hideaway cache from the looks of the log was removed by Solid Rock Seekers but I think it was adopted by Mad Muffin and never really transferred to his name. So that's another one that I think was removed.

    Hidden falls cache I believe was removed as the land at the falls was sold to a private owner.I can remember a for sale sign at the entrance when I was there. Maybe an email to Lost Hiker Man will be enough to get him to archive it correctly and make sure the cache was removed.

    The After the Fall cache, I know the owner has moved to Thailand so not sure about that one. He did have a few of his caches adopted before he left and I assumed this was one of them but it looks not to be the case. It is off the AT too so maybe it won't be able to be adopted either.

    Pine Tree HAPPY is not there. In fact, I archived my cache there because the maintenance crew is very good at removing caches and I was unable to find anyone who could give permission.

    The area is free for anyone!

    In looking through the logs I believe you're right about the Field of Dreams . . . it looks like Rick pulled the ammo can and attempted to contact the owners and/or GPSfun.

    In reading other logs it also appears as though someone picked up the Hallowell Hideaway cache . . . or what was left of it . . . after they stumbled on to it while searching for the new cache around the same location.

    Also, the Rattle Snake cache seems to have been replaced . . . but it looks like the owner never went through the process of unarchiving the cache.

    Lost Hiker Man claims Hidden Falls has been picked up. Land owner was afraid of someone falling into the brook. A quick email to him brought a rapid response.

    Can go and check that Cosmo was actually removed - as soon as I get a chance.

    I just got an email about After the Fall - there is a good chance it's still there. Anyone up to go hunt it up, and then we can make a decision what to do if it's still there. It's in Solon and the closest cache is .7 miles, so it's possible it could be re-approved.

    An extra hint, because we really want to know if it's there(in rot13 in case you want to look without hint first).

    Bruce is real close to it so I'm sure he could check it out once the snow is gone.

    Actually that cache has been removed, I had seen it was archived and decided it was to nice of a view not to have a cache there so I hid Rydn The Bri-Mar Trail in the same area,when I went back to check on it I found that sockmnky's cache was still there, and that some people had found it and logged it as mine. I moved mine to a different location and submitted a log on GC.com with new Coords and explaining what had happened,when I went back Sockmnky's was gone. Rydn the Bri-Mar Trail is still there though and the view is still gorgeous
