    Default Caches Not Hidden

    I went to visit my cach and found that it was not covered up again.
    on my way to work i stoped in to the wing cache and that one was not covered back up as well. both these are pretty east to find for just anyone walking by. I Think We need to be covering these back up.

    It never ceases to amaze me when I check my own caches and find the cache not hidden in the same manner as I left it . . . I've been fortunate though and each time the cache was at least hidden . . . however for the life of me I can't figure out why some geo-cachers can't seem to grasp the concept of hiding a cache in the same manner as they found it.

    This is one of my biggest peeves. I had a cache in Portland in a very busy area that I lost three times most likely because those who found it didn't hide it like they found it. It was in a location highly unlikely to be discovered accidentally if finders had taken the time to hide it carefully be more aware of muggles watching them.

    I know the feeling as well, as I have also found my caches uncovered numerous times when doing cache maintenance. I usually try to hide the cache better than when I found it and hope that other cachers do that as well.

    I agree with every one, but I not sure which is worst. Leaving them uncovered or the pile of perfectly straight sticks

    I agree that a cache should be covered at least as well as you found it. But many cachers - us included - do not like to make finds difficult. We don't use the "cacher's pile of sticks", but if another owner wants to, it's their cache.
