    Let him get a few hides under his belt and he will see what we mean. But I guess each to his own.
    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    That kind of defeats the purpose. Geocaching, for me is to discover new places, why would I want to visit one area and log 25 (or whatever number) caches that show the exact same thing?

    I agree. How many times have we seen a log entry: "We've never have known about this place if it weren't for geocaching".

    And besides, my memory is so bad, I could visit the same cache 3 times and still see new things! LOL!

    I hate going to a cache in the middle of nowhere or just off the side of the road just to log it. I would like it to be an experience. Don't get me wrong I will still cache these spots. Because you never know until you get there whether it was worth it. But I hate going to caches that were place just because someone wanted to place a cache. There is a lot of that going on out there right now. People are placing caches just to place them because they know people will go to them. I personally would like to see caches placed where there is something interesting or unique there or on some hiking trails or something interesting. Not someplace where you stop on the side of the road and walk in the woods 20 feet and place a cache. I hope I am getting my point accross.

    I agree, It should be an experiance. I would rather do one or two caches that were meaningful than seven or eight that were just there.

    Which would eliminate MOST micro caches. YES!!!
