    I agree 100%. If a cache owner can't take care of a cache in a reasonable amount of time then it should be archived to give someone else the opportunity to put one there themselves. Something else that falls into this category is Travel bug, and Geocoin owners that dont answer emails about their TBs, or about TB's/geocoins that they have in their possession. I have sent emails, and left Log notes about several "missing" TBs in this area and I never get a response, and the TBs never get logged as missing, or no longer in the cache. I also don't always get emails back from people that have MY TB's or Geocoins when I email them. > If you can't keep up with the maintenance of a cache, T.B, or Geocoin then dont put them out, or don't take them out of a cache!

    Where the hell is that thing?

    By the way. Have you looked at the stats for these two cachers??

    Not truly into it in my book.

    Thanks everyone. I am thinking about placing a cache while I am out there. This will be my fifth trip to the island. I am a bit of an artist wanna be and travel here just for the inspiration.

    I am in town for 2 days and I have to meet with some town officials for a work related thing. I think I may be able to get land owner permission with their help.

    Lightbulb Neither--Just replace 1.5 miles away!

    I don't know if Hiram wants this public just yet, so I'm vague here, but we had a cache DNF'd and the cacher "rehid it" 1.5 miles away! And the cacher isn't even from the state!

    Anyway, speaking as a new cache hider, I really appreciate all the help other cachers offer in maintaining my caches (Firefighterjake and Nially!!) and cachers who keep me updated on their attempts (Dubord!). Contact with the cache hider is really important; it's curtousy, even if they don't respond. I do think if the cache hider posts the cache is missing, then the very least they can do is archive it with a note on when they expect to replace it or with a request for another cacher to replace it. I say, if the cache hider is unresponsive, and if you don't find it, then make sure to post a "needs archived" on the cache page.

    Great thoughts everyone!

    I think that may be 0.15m (I can never get my decimels in the right place LOL) but regardless - About how the lack of finding the cache and just placing out another would meet the challenge ~ I bet the Cache Owner for the challenge will take care of it!

    nope, they DNFd ours and rehid another to get the delorme map...

    and I highly doubt that ours is missing since upsalquitch found it last week, and it's not in a very "high muggle" area...

    And hopefully, the owners of the DeLorme Challenge will disallow their placement for a "find" on that map by just doing that placement. That is a possiblity and I have faith in our Maine group. Agreed - highly unlikely it is "missing".

    Heck - if that was all one had to do to finish the challenge - this whole challenge would have probably been finished a lot sooner by a lot of other cachers. To bad someone wasn't going up soon to find that map and be able to find/log your cache - that would "blow" their DNF log out of the water.
