    Yes, we could put out more caches, and we intend to one of these days. But we prefer quality over quantity.

    You could also argue that geocachers should give back by sponsoring a geocaching event once in a while. You could probably count on your fingers how many GCM.org cachers have sponsored events. Well - at least on fingers and toes both. Which makes about 20 people - less than 1 percent of GCM.org members.
    To me it's not a quantity vs. quality type of thing . . . I simply find it hard to believe that someone can not find one single unique place to hide a cache in all their travels.

    And you're right . . . I would rather someone not hide a cache vs. hide a cache in a lamp post or guard rail . . . but that said there are so many beautiful views along roads . . . so many public parks . . . so many interesting areas.

    I have always felt that to the folks with a bazillion finds and no cache hides that the issue is simply that they do not want to take the time to find and hide a cache and maintain the cache . . .

    P.S. For the record . . . I enjoyed the historical location you brought us to at your micro cache in the woods. Neat bit of history.

    Stage 2 or Stage 3 for me . . . and you would either find me there waxing on and on about some trivial topic, professing my undying love for my wife or I would be sound asleep.

    When we me TandemStoker at that location a couple of weeks ago, we discussed the history of The Somerset Railway, and I mentioned a book that I had read on the subject: "The Old Somerset Railroad", by Walter M. MacDougall. I looked for it at the time and couldn't find it, but your mention of history prompted me to look until I found it! LOL!

    It's quite a story of a railroad through the woods - Oakland to Mt. Kineo on Moosehead Lake. Hopefully I'll be able to get a couple more caches along the route before Laughing Terry has all the good locations locked in! LOL!

    Thanks for the link - and the Micro in the Woods along the old line.

    Hey, I AM a GCM.org member!! (Since 2007) I just haven't been on in awhile!

    And I'll make the effort to identify people on the list who are not GCM.org members:

    Team Norac
    Emmy-n-Sapphie
    Nick~MacCache
    teamdozer12

    Which leaves 25 GCM.org members - close enough to my suggested 20 I'll concede 2.5 percent of our members have hosted events rather than 2 percent! LOL!

    I missed your name on that list, teamdozer12, I knew you are a member, you even visited chat on several occasions.
