    I guess really the whole issue here was not really the FTF issue, it was just the fact of the find period and not even opening the container and signing the logbook.

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    I can also remember the one and only time I didn't sign the logbook to claim a find and I mentioned that at an event once. Boy did I get some crap for that,.....lol Never again have I claimed credit for a cache and not signed the logbook. You didn't have to tell me that one twice Brdad....lol

    I think I have a clear conscience now about claiming a FTF. Even if I wasn't actually the first to find it.... I guess.

    Thumbs up

    I am with you too. In order to claim a find you have to sign the log book, or as brdad points out, in the case of a destroyed cache, prove that you were there with a picture. Just my 2 cents.

    On the contrary to what you may think it really was the issue of signing the logbook and claiming the find.

    To me, signing the log trumps logging it on the web. In my last hide, I specifically left something special in the cache for the FTF. I've even gone out and found caches that were not registered yet on the web. I feverously went to the cach to find the log signed. Even though I was first to log on the web, I did not get the first to find. In the courtroom, the edivence would go to the log because anyone could claim on the web they got there first. Its not about numbers....... however, the individual claiming they were the first to find is making it about numbers. That's my vote!

    I thought that I got my FIRST FTF tonight, but upon opening the log I found that indeed another geocacher beat me to it, so it doesn't seem to me that you can assume to be FTF if you haven't opened the log.
