Hi, this is LuxGirl1969.
I have noticed that geocaches seem to go missing.
Since I am new to the MD Geocaching Society, I am not sure if you have discussed this already, but do you think that people are just going out there and destroying our geocaches?
Also, I know there was some discussion recently that people who write very short logs are doing a disservice to those of us who have placed caches. I just wanted to say that I agree!
When I write a log, I try to let the CO know what kind of shape the cache is in, and thank them for the time and effort they put into creating the geocache. I wish all loggers would do the same if possible.
Lastly, I am so happy to be part of this community. My son (Going On An Adventure) is the one who introduced me to geocaching and I find that the reasons I love it and enjoy it so much is that it gets me out moving, it takes me to places I never would have gone on my own, and I learn!

So thank you to all of my fellow geocachers!

Lux,

I agree with you i mean i have done a couple of short logs myself but really only when its been say a micro id say somthing like nice hide tftc just cause not sure what else to say. but it is nice to know what people think of the hiding spot plus it helps others if their having trouble finding it

I know this is a bit late in the calender but I havent been here in awhile. As for the missing caches...it happens. Sometimes its animals that drag them off, sometimes kids & sometimes although fortunately not very often it is someone just being a jerk. There was a period of time a few yrs back that there was a person that made it his mission to remove as many caches as possible. Of all types. Not just quick grab caches but some of ever level. Fortunately this person is gone or at least found something else to do.
Per the short logs.......not everyone is a writer......some do great story logs & some caches just arent all that exciting they are more for the numbers. Then some just get a TFTC or just a :)
As a CO I have caches in all but the 5T cat. I dont mind a TFTC on a stop & grabs but some have stories that go with them or are in great locations, be it for the significance in History, Geology, Ecology or just a great photo op. I as well as many CO's put significant work into the choice of placement & the cache itself & do appreciate a little more than TFTC on these.................but..............it is what it is............& regardless of what we get in posts in return for the work we do we will keep doing what we do because its all part of what makes caching fun for us.
Welcome to caching & hope you enjoy. Its a great bunch in Md to cache with or just hang out with at a M&G or an event. MW
