So will Near the Forgotten be showing up in a year again since GrangerFam  was the last to find it?  Is he a curse to the caches?  You notice how many he was the last one to find.  (I'm just teasing, Trey).    :D

Are you suggesting that you turned 5SH into a rat and he's living in your cache???  OR, is he a fancy wizard that can live as a rat??  :laugh: :laugh:

If I remember my Harry Potter though, if 5SH can live as a rat, it would be a male rat.  I'm reasonably certain that this rat was a female.  If you are worried, I didn't hurt it.  :angel:

There are so many comments that could be made here about 5SH but I prefer to allow it to be a female rat.

This list should be serving 2 purposes.  The ones that haven't found these should be challenged to go try so they can claim victory over these seldom found caches.  The other purpose should be that the owners of the cache go check on the caches to make sure they are really there still, especially if they are showing DNFs.  If one of those caches was mine that hadn't been found, I'd check on it and then report that I'd checked on it so that others wouldn't be staying away thinking that they were wasting their time looking for a "maybe".

Thanks for pointing that out Joy and Bull!  (aka my PAF)  I didn't see HC's new posting of unfound caches until just now!  ???  I don't know why I didn't see it before!  I like the challenge of trying to get caches off of this list!  :D
