5426RE: [NUTS] It's been a while...
- Sep 6, 2008Well, welcome back!! Sounds like y'all have been really busy. Congrats on getting through paramedic school and the new house. We are having a NUTS event on Sunday the 21st of Sept called A NUTS Breakfast at the Bend in Oroville, so hope you and all the NUTS folks can make it.
Must be quite a shock (as it would be in any culture) to step away for three years and then suddenly to be back in it. Yep, things change while we are gone! Caching is such a dynamic sport and with new cachers and new ideas, it is ever changing... and yet still so much the same.
Think you maybe "preaching to the choir" with your statements about micros in the woods, trampled forests, and the like... many of us live in the woods too. We NUTS try real hard to keep the environment around our caches in good shape. But we don't have much choice when it comes to others visiting and tramping... really, does anybody? When it comes to micros in the woods, the good news (much like our TV programs)... we can filter out those that we don't like us and focus on the ones we choose to enjoy! There are still plenty of good hikes, adventuresome caches, and ammo cans or larger, around.
Hope you will join us and try out some of the newer caches in NUTS country, Rock&Crystal

Subject: [NUTS] It's been a while...Hello to all our cachin' friends. Robbers Creek Cachers has been on
Hiatus/Sabbatical for a while. Andy and I both went through Paramedic
School and we just bought a new house. Now that we are settled
and "normal" again, we are back with a vengance.
We miss going to events and seeing all of you. I see there are more
members than ever now. Yeah! We will admit, we did not do any caching
for 3 years at all. Boo Hoo. It was horrible for the whole family. We
were suprised to see how caching has changed in the last few years.
Different "kinds" of caches. We were taken back a bit when we Googled
our area and saw the over saturation of caches (mostly micros). Whew!
For those of you who do not know where we are, well we are fairly
secluded in Plumas County. We have noticed a lot are too close
together and heck, we barely have to hike for any of them near the
highway area...it's almost a stop and rob situation. (we will say
though, this is helping get our stats right back up there). We are a
little diappointed with the amount of nano caches in the middle of
the forest. We have found some very clever and eco friendly stashes.
But the majority have been a needle in a haystack event for us. And
we have noticed during these particular hunts, the destuction of the
forest...Broken branches & trees, every rock out of place and damage
to surrounding wildland. It is obvious and frustrating. Since we call
the forest area our home, we would like to throw out a little
awarness for the forest and ask people to be a little more mindful
before putting out their caches (we are not trying to offend anyone).
Overall, we love all the new and creative ways people have been
hiding their caches. Oh! and the explosion of Geocoins? This is sooo
cool and we jumped right on that.
Well, we are back and we would like to advise we are bringing back
the "traditional" cache in our area... Woot Woot! We are all about
good quality GeoSwag. BOLO for up and coming caches from RCC
Thanks again for all the clever caches that add to our quality family
Pam and Andy RCC
