    Talking Reasons to Disallow an FTF

    So, I'm sitting here this morning looking at the cache listings and see one listed nearly 57 miles away. I'm thinking, boy, if I didn't have to work now would be the time to head out. Then I see it's logged.

    Here's a cut and paste of the log, exactly as posted by EMSDaniel:

    "Had my coffee, watched the news, then turned on the computer. Well look at that.... a new cache 3 miles away! Ooops, I'll have to scrape the windshield first. It's a beautiful, sunshiney morning and a nice way to start the day. VERY nice container! Thanks."

    So, he's had his coffee *AND* watched the news before checking the cache listings! I think that's sufficient reason to disallow this as an FTF.

    Comments?

    At this point, a FTF run around here and anyone should be grateful that certain cachers are working on challenges and arent going for the FTF's.

    I only go for FTF on caches that have been out for 2 years or more1 That's a lot of coffee!!
    The farmer gave permission to place the cache in the field, but the bull charges.

    The EMT Manual of Professional Standards requires EMT's to have .2357 Mgs of caffein in their blood for attempting to drive anything. Dan was being his usual compliant self!
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    I would not even consider disallowing EMSdaniel's FTF. Just not worth it!

    I beat him to a FTF once and then there was you know what to pay!

    Take my word for it, just let him have it and chalk it up to experience!
    I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!

    It got to a point, around here, when hardly anyone within a fifty mile radius of Lewiston, even bothered to go for a first to find! (Except for a few with fast cars.)
    But that was well over a year or so ago.

    What are you talking about?

    Knowing the big D I would say anything that he says is gospel.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    I'm saying there used to be a cacher who "Gobbled" up all the FTFs.
