206Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] What's going to happen if they decide to pick up their toys and go home?
- Dec 31, 2002The secret guidelines now include:
1) I (the approver) personally don't like virtuals.
2) If you can at all possible place a small container with a logbook,
do so, because (see #1).
3) This just isn't unique enough, even though I (the approver) have
never even seen the place
4) The rules for virtuals are changing, we (the approving class) are
approving less of them because (see #1).
5) I (the approver) am letting this go to my head, I have the power, my
game: "Neener neener neener."
From now on all my caches are starting out as 50 cal ammo boxes with a
logbook inside, hidden in a state park. Immediately after approval,
some may secretly turn into virtuals and the coordinates may change
--well... more than a little bit. :-)
