Well, that was a short-lived cache

Because of the new policy in Anza Borrego Desert State Park, which disallows physical caches in the Park, I thought my "Virtual Tour Cache" would be a good idea.

Seems it was too controversial . . .

It generated discussion in the Forums, and when I tried to clarify things, it got worse. Then I got a couple of emails from people, then a "Note" was posted on the cache page. The way I worded the part of the description about logging the cache, either with a "Found it" or a "Note" was mis-interpreted.

I Archived it.

Now I have an ammo can sitting on a hill, overlooking the desert, that will be very, very lonely until I figure out whether to turn it into a Traditional, or go retrieve it someday . . .

UPDATE: March 29, 2008

I started feeling better this morning, finally . . . So, even though a local cacher said there would be "bad blood" in our local caching community if I Activated this cache allowing multiple "Found it" logs, I did it anyway.

My thanks to Marko Ramius, our local Reviewer, for Un-Archiving the cache so I could edit it, and edit it, and edit it, at least a dozen times, before finally hitting the "Enable listing" link.


  • Wow, that's a bummer. You really put a lot of effort into that cache. Why not just make it a traditional cache and have the posts be "An open letter to the officials at the ABDSP." Although, I'm sure that would be controversial too.
