My own opinion is if there are baggies with the log then the cache hider should replace the log in the baggie . . . and not tear them open or just remove them . . . the exception being if the baggie is torn and useless.
By they way, your cache series inspired me . . . I think it was the next week I taped the first three episodes of Star Wars on Spike TV . . . and I've been watching the final three episodes via Netflix.
