Caching Peeve

A lot of the cachers around here know each other...seems like when they can't find a cache and they know the owner or someone else that has found it, they have no problem with calling for info on finding it.

I hate that. I don't know any of them, and even if I did, I wouldn't call. The point is to find it yourself or to use the hint on the cache page...not to have someone tell you exactly where it is.

There is a micro (I hate them but can't keep myself from hunting them) in a great little park near my house. The GPS won't lock on because of tree cover but I have a basic idea of where it is. I have looked for this thing dozens of times with no luck....someone found it yesterday because they looked for a bit and then called the owner for help so they could log it...it's all about the smiley's these days and I think that just sucks.

That sucks. I wish the other "cool" geocache site had more caches.

I wonder why they bother if they are basically cheating?? Can the smiley feel as good that way?;)

Yeah, I don't know...for me the finds mean something to me...I don't care what others think, but I am thinking these people just want others to think they have found a lot regardless if they really did or not...lame if you ask me.

Chicken- me too. Seems like the way to go for those that want to see cool things and not get bogged down in the stupidity of people that have to turn everything into a contest.

I think they are just lazy and don't want to do the work to get the reward.
