191RE: [CentralTexasGeocachers] What's going to happen if they decide to pick up their toys and go home?
- Dec 31, 2002I've had my last 4 caches rejected, so I just quit the sport. I haven't
hid or searched for a cache for months because of Jeremy's minions.
They are ruining the sport, and I am proof that their strong-handed
approach to a very simple fun sport is going to lose participants.
