    Angry Dead tb

    Well, it was only a matter of time before one of my tb found its way into the hands of a newbie then was never put back into a cache. It really @*&&@@ me off when this happens. I was enjoying watching it go from cache to cache. I knew I was doomed when the newbie logged it and said "This is a great find since this is my first cache.

    Here is the link

    If anyone knows any cachers in Mississippi that happen to know this newbie please pass on the word that the book wasnt free to the first newbie.

    so, just to clarify, you're upset about this going missing correct???


    (and no, sorry, i don't have any connections in missippi)

    (have you tried contacting the cacher??? I see they have only two finds, but have logged in back in december...)
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    Duh, contact the cacher, why didnt I think of that. Of course I contacted the cacher. Several times even. Good thing Steph keeps a short leash on you.

    I have one in the hands of a newbie also. Its only been there since November but maybe its time to check in. Usually, if worded right, I get a good response from cachers who had or have a had a tb of mine.
    Slowly but surely

    Oh, poor, poor Hiram. . . . but I will admit this was pretty funny . . . at least picturing Hiram on a leash. By the way (in the fine tradition of derailing threads here at gcmaine) . . . how's Hiram and the Search for the Holy Grail . . . I mean Scrambler going?

    Did you actually "make contact" with this guy or just send emails and got no response?

    If you got a response, what did he say?

    Many cachers, us included, don't do much caching in the winter, so I don't usually get upset if a TB gets "held up" in the winter. Another problem we're experiencing is that so many of the new caches are micros or "small" caches, that it's hard to find a cache to put a TB in! LOL!

    Sheesh! I hate guys like that! And I'd bet that if he had responded, he'd have told you he dropped the TB off in another cache...
