    Default Hep Cache

    Maybe someone should create a cache called Hepatitus and make sure not to include any writing utencils, just a pin, paper, and some band aids?

    I'm all for dedication but if there is nothing to write with, take your picture with the log or cache in hand as a temporary log and go back later.

    But... if you're going to go back, why not just log the DNF and log it when you go back?

    I'd be willing to bet a high percentage of cachers who would log it would not go back. Too much desire to get that smiley and move on to the next.

    Hmmm, now that you mention it, how do I know someone didn't sign the log on someone elses behalf? You see, I've heard rumor from my best friend's cousin on their long deceased great-grandmothers side that she knew of someone who logged many finds without ever leaving their sofa. Imagine the horror when I thought I heard that?!!!!

    Da rules need to be drawn in blood.

    Cache on!

    Ok, come on now. It's just as game! The only rule is the log has to be signed. It doesn't matter if it is signed by the actual cacher or if the cacher is even in the same state.

    Default Sheesh!

    My "pet-peeve button" has been pushed - HARD.

    We brought a travel bug back from New Brunswick which is in a race with other TB's, and it's interim goal was to go to a Canadian Forces Base near Quebec City. We placed it in our "Old Canada Road" cache, which is on Route 201 - a direct route to Quebec. It was plainly marked "North Only" and had a laminated tag stating that it wanted to go to Quebec City.

    Some (expletive deleted) cacher took it and brought it to the Bangor/Orono area.

    Why??? It was clearly marked with a goal!!!

    Default New cachers, no clue!

    Well that sucks. These are people from the same place that brought us Jimmy Carter, what can you expect. They don't know North from South.

    Maybe one of the active Bangor cachers can rescue the bug out of that cache. Mike can save it, it's on the way to SMR!

    That is strange Bruce. I've never seen a TB picked up and moved to the wrong location accidentally, like back home instead of an event in Augusta.

    Another way to look at it is there are more cachers in the Bangor area, so there could be a possibility it would make it to it's goal quicker from Bangor!

    Sheesh! I took it to the right location - I just forgot to let it out for discovery. And besides, I am bringing it to the next location on it's tour! LOL!
