Interesing take on things. I'm not sure I completely agree with this. If it is in the same general area, it is basically the same cache with a new container. A completely new listing with a new roman numeral that folks can post a new find for is pretty much the same thing as people coming back and logging a second find for the same the cache. I think is just a matter of splitting hairs about folk's opinions of what is and what isn't within the rules.

I think it is somewhat contradictary to say that if you replace a cache and don't start a new page then folks can't log a new find, but if you do start a new cache page for the rehide they can. It really is the same thing whether a new cache page is started or not.

As for the hitorical record issue, just posting a dated note on the cache page that it was replaced seems like record enough.
