    Default Got Mine Too

    I was just going to ask about this "bot" whatever that is, I think it hit ten of mine. I'll delete the logs and am just glad I don't have to worry about the actual caches!

    in 2050 people will send robots to find the cache and/or mess with it.
    in 2070 robots will send robots to find the cache and/or mess with it.

    Default Is Marcipanek a bot?

    Petr (geocaching handle Marcipanek) has burst on the scene in Southern Maine and has racked up huge numbers. Perhaps he is a bot?

    If you go to their blog site it has thousands of pictures of caches they have found taken and destroyed!! So our caches may not be safe! I had five caches "attacked" but they are all in remote areas and I am unable to check on any of them soon.

    Just by discussing this crap you have fallen into the trap set by this looser. To get the name out. Just another form of graffiti.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    After the long drive, and the strenuous hike I made with the parmachenees to find the Borestone Mountain cache on Saturday, I'm sure this bozo didn't get to the actual cache, even though it's logged as a find! However, I am also concerned about someone clicking on the link. Should I send an E-mail to groleau about it?

    The farmer gave permission to place the cache in the field, but the bull charges.
