    Default Finding an archived cache

    Spent this past weekend with Maniac1957 and Dave1976 and Girlmate caching up around the Katahdin area and the Golden road and vacinity. While caching I found "The Warden's Outhouse cache" and signed the log book no less. When I arrived home to log the caches I find that it had been archived back in July and had not been removed. Had I known that it was archived I would have removed it and notified the owner. My question is I tried to log the cache even though it was there but couldnt because of it being archived. Is there a way to log an archived cache? I did email the owner about it but havent heard back form them as of yet. If there is anyone that is planning on going to that area and wants to remove it ,I say go ahead. Anyone else ever have this type of problem crop up before? The cache # is GCKNHR if you're interested.

    Go to my profile on geocaching.com and bring it up under my found caches. I think you will be able to log it.

    We did "Jimmy's Puddle", down Litchfield way, only to find out it had been archived. It, too, is still there (as far as I know) and should be removed.

    Log on to geocaching.com. Then.....You can do this with anyone who has found The Warden's Outhouse. Find a cache they have done. Click on their name to view their profile. View their stats and find the cache listed in the appropriate area...in this case...Traditional caches. Find the cache and click on it. You should then be able to log it.

    Default I tried it, no luck

    I looked at that and when you click on logs it comes up saying that the cache no longer is accepting new logs. You might be out of luck on this one.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    Default Try this??

    Go to the profile of the person who placed the cache and do the stats thing and then click on caches they have hidden. This worked for someone trying to log my old Tidal Falls Hideaway...now that I think about it, it was the ONLY way they could get to it.
