They're Gone

I finally broke down and did it. I went through the list of geocaches near my home and put all the stupid boring micros, that I haven't been able to stop myself from looking for, on my ignore list so they don't show up when I do a search for caches.

I have had this option for a while now but only chose to do it on ones that I had checked out and decided weren't worth looking for. This time, I just went down the list and if it was a micro and I had a basic idea of where it was and how stupid it was, it went on the ignore list. Any that had "park and grab" in their description were the first to go. Ones that had no description other than to tell me that I needed to bring my own pen and I was looking for a 33mm canister were also quickly gone. My only regret is that the owners of these idiotic things can't see that they are on anyone's ignore list. I wish they could, I wish that they would get the hint and stop ruining perfectly good areas to hide regular sized caches in by putting these dumb things in.

So my ignore list now has 48 items on it (there are more micros than that but I have found some already). They are all within 20 miles of my house. Seems like when I get some distance from this area, the trading caches come back to the surface. I need to get out and find a new one as I have a yellow jeep travel bug that I need to release soon.

Wow that is a lot to ignore. Sounds like that j@ck@ss puts out a lot.

He is the worst of them but some of them that I am ignoring are by other cacher's as well. Just laziness I think, not putting out a trading cache when there is space for it.

where is the travel bug destination? Anywhere on the west coast hint hint?

It doesn't have a destination...it is one of the jeep ones so it just wants to move from cache to cache meeting people. I don't know if I will have it long enough for my trip out in May, but if I don't, then I will try to pick up another one before I come out...
