5864RE: [NUTS] Smiley or Frown?
- Aug 25, 2009How about those that that are doing events where they are supposed to check in at the event?
Instead, they are sitting out in the field waiting with their wireless cards in their laptops for the gpx file post on the web. They then knock out the furthest caches and work their way in. They get some FTF's before anyone from the event that can even get to them in time. Some work hard to honestly get the FTF. Only to get there and find that someone one had already logged it. I then meet the person on the trail who was bragging they got it and how they did it. I did not have much to say to this cacher and just moved on. Ticked me off, but what can we do?
I have dubbed stuff like this as "geocheating". I have seen a few other inconsistencies as well out in the field.
I try to keep the highest integrity while out on the hunt. I like the phrase "To thine own self be true". And how hard is it to replace a temp log until the cache owner can replace one? As some have said, the cacher(s) doing this are the ones that has to live with the way they hunt. Right or wrong, it is their call. There are people from all walks of life doing this activity anyhow. Can we expect perfection? Then again, I am still kind of new and really do not get too involved in the forums. Though I do learn a lot by reading them. Just my two cents.
Happy caching and keep your head up high! :-)

Subject: Re: [NUTS] Smiley or Frown?How about the cacher than hides caches in his wife's name and then finds them in his? Sure is an easy way to build numbers if you can live with yourself. (and the whole community who knows what you are doing).If you are with another cacher when they are putting out hides should you ever claim a find on that cache?
