Of those you've taken off the list, Log Dawgs was the last to find on several of them. Hmmm, could this be where he's been gettng his caching containers from? :stirpot:

Better him than me.  Several years ago, many were "last found by the Muddy Buddies"

Way to go Log Dawgs!   It would be great if more people took this list as a challenge to eliminate the list.

I'm thinking of taking some artistic license and deleting a bunch of the obviously missing and abandoned caches from the list next month.  It would make my life easier and, frankly, make the list more meaningful.  Folks could look at caches in the bookmarked list with the realization that they might actually be findable.

Maybe take the ones that you think are really gone and just make a list of those and post it in this topic separately once so that there is at least a record of the ones that you've eliminated and from hence forward just list the ones that you think are possibly there.

I could do that. For example, three or four of the caches added to the list this month are mostly likely history already. The hide out (GC1F09C) hasn't been there for years. It was a film can in a bush in a neighborhood park -- and now the bush is gone. Someone claimed a delayed find on it after a couple of months of DNF's or it would have aleady been on the list. I hate putting garbage like that on the list.

the hide out - GC1F09C:  I found this one back in 2010 and wrote the fella and asked him to archive it.

Sounds like a good plan. It worked on a few up this way that had long since been missing and not maintained or archived.

I grabbed a puzzle (GC1HGWB) back in February that hadn't been found in exactly two years.

I'm not sure a Needs Archived does much good.  Rock This Way! GCM5X1 - has had two NA's on it for 6 months and nothing.  Same for Warm up 4 the BBSP GC1VMZFLittle Red GC25JT8 has NA's going back to last June.

 

 

Let one sit disabled for 6 months though, and PR is all over it.

Doesn't really seem to be a method to the madness. There were/are four up this way that all got peppered with NA's about the same time. Three of them got picked up in the last PR archiving spree, but one didn't. Go figure...

I have written to PR about a couple of caches in the Hunstville area that desperately needed to be archived, and he responded by immediately archiving one (it was the final in a puzzle where the first part had been archived (having never been found) so it wasn't possible to do any longer) and disabling one with a note to the CO to fix it.  In the latter case, since the CO hasn't logged on to geocaching.com in over a year, I expect PR will archive it after a month or so.

 

The reason to mention all of this is rather than simply posting a "needs archived" log, go the next step and make your case with PR.

BB, I'm really not sure where you stand on cache maintenance. Could you please clarify? :2funny:

You can take Cambridge Village Kids Cache GCRNNJ off the list.  I did it today.  Strange it has not been found in two+ years.

The trick is to abandon it.  It seems like you can let it sit missing for a year of so, but if you once disable it he'll jump on it in a month or so. Team Delicatxan disabled one of hers immediately after Ike noting it was because the park was closed.  He archived it in about 2 months, near the time that section of the park reopened.  I know this because I was watching it planning to do it when the park opened again and she'd checked to be sure it was OK.

I saw that.  Since I have all the caches on the list on a bookmarked list, I get an email on any logs to the caches.  Sounds like finding that one was pretty uneventful.
