    My peeve is when I spend forever looking for a cache and then read the next log after mine saying: "Easy find, spotted it as soon as I got out of the car, took all of 30 seconds start to finish".

    But what really irritates me is when I point out the mis-classification to the cache placer and they just ignore the suggestion to make the change. I have a friend who caches in a wheelchair and he has to go quite a process to get in and out of his van and when the cache is on the other side of a ditch, it just isn't right for him to have to be frustrated as a result of some lazy person's unwillingness to edit their cache attributes.

    I had put that link on a number of the Maine Rose caches which I placed. Interesting - few people used the rating scale. The web site does have good information. Thanks for sharing the link Haffy!

    I know what you mean...Abbey's Cache was like that for me, after spending hours looking for it then reading where someone posted a log saying" saw this one while driving by on rt.302 at 60 mph in the dark ". One good thing to come from this was it made doing a certain cache of EMS Daniels a lot easier.

    We have noticed lately that lots of the time folks are just signing their names to the log books on regular size caches.... no comments ie: nice trail, not even a TFTC scribbled in the log book. Maybe this is because folks have been logging lots of micros without space in the logbook to sign anything else. Even the online logs are a bit lean
    We realize some folks don't like to write much but a TFTC is a good use of four letters.

    BTW TFTT Thanks for the thread

    Don't send me hate mail. I know a few people that can't write well. It isn't that they don't write anything, they just can't. I have noticed lately that a few are kind of slow even posting a log due to this.

    Now comes the part for the real hate mail. My pet peeve is the garbage I find in caches. Rubber bands, dead corroded batteries, stuff like that.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    I've come across a little of that. It does give me motivation to check my caches at least every couple of months

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    Sheesh! Now you've pushed MY button! LOL! I agree - but I'd express my pet peeve in a broader sense - caches that haven't been maintained in YEARS, and have rusty metal "swag", soaked signature cards, etc! I fully believe that it's the cache owner's responsibility to either maintain their caches or let someone else adopt them.

    Default Another "Pet Peeve"

    Letting my wife talk me into buying composite wood instead of good old fashioned 12X2 boards to finish my front steps. It's thinner, weaker, and I had to use twice as much, and pay twice as much for steps that are used mostly for a fire escape, if needed. This, with about 25 new caches published in Kennebec County this weekend. Why do I make such bad choices?

    I really hate it when there are a LOT of DNF's on a cache and there isnt an owner update. Is it there? Isnt it? Does it need maintenance...? Why have so many people not found it?? Grrr...Then the icon just sits there on my map taunting me....haha anyways....my 2 cents.
