    Sheesh! I don't know. Perhaps.

    What "personal shortcoming" are you trying to make up for by being so confrontational?

    Excuse me!!!! Didn't I do a micro cache today you put out? Since when does a film canister qualify as "big?" Hope you're not trying to trick your fellow cachers!

    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    While I don't think this one idea of mine would be detrimental to the sport, if everything was the way I would have it, I agree the game would probably fade out fast! Of course, many of my thoughts are based on experience, some things I thought were important early on are not that important and some of the things I thought were not important are. What I would have proposed for rules when I started is not necessarily the case now!

    I disagree. You need to get up to this area. It would renew your faith in continuance geocaching! LOL!

    I grabbed the cache and drove up to North Street and found a delightful park with spectacular views of Portland. I had lived in the area more than 20 years and had no idea this park existed. The logs indicate taht I am not the only local who was unaware of this park! I am so glad those women spoke loudly that day!

    If you look at my official Geocaching profile, you will see that I listed this cache as one of my favorites! The vista from the park is similar to my favorite view of Seattle, WA from the Queen Anne neighborhood inside the city limits.... probably the most iconic views of Seattle. Thanks for this cache Lex! It is a great spot unknown to most of us, and one I would never have found except by caching!

    Nah, thats the reason I have my Jeep...not why I am so confrontational. I am so confrontational because I have balls unlike a lot of others here on the forum who either won't say a thing or will but toe the party line and are afraid to really speak up....

    This thread has veered off in 8 directions so I have created an article titled
    The one cache you would keep? to display the originally intended data. Thee are some interesting thoughts going on here nonetheless, so we'll keep this open. If you'd still like to add your favorite hide to the list in the article, feel free to post here or in the article comments.

    See, this is where I think the difference is, correct me if I am wrong. I am guessing most of these caches stand on their own. If you were to do only one of them, you would be satisfied. If LT were allowed to hide only one of these a year, you'd be happy to do them anyway.

    I know there are some cachers out there that cannot be satisfied unless they have found 25 or more in a day, and there are some caches out there that would be less than interesting for most unless you find 25 or more of them in a day.

    Some caches are simply not designed to stand alone. I'm guessing most of the Star Wars series are like that. If I was to drive from Bangor to find only one, I'd probably be dissatisfied. It's obvious they were not placed to be found alone. There is nothing wrong with that, but for me I prefer caches that can stand alone, even if I get 25 of them in a day.

    It sounds like the auto series might have stepped it up a notch and LT's may have stepped it up another notch. Someday I'll do a few of many or all of the series and know better.

    Sheesh! Anyone who has done more than one of LT's caches knows that they definitely stand alone! LOL!
