Just curious what people do here. A prior thread got me to wondering on this.
Maybe you weren't prepared for a stream / swamp crossing.
Maybe it got too dark and searching became impractical.
Maybe too much bushwhacking for what you wanted.
Maybe you found it's up in a tree and said forget it. Maybe you can even see it but still said no way.
Maybe an impenetrable wall of water hyacinth keeps you from going up the bayou to it.
Do you DNF these or post notes, and why?
For me, I tend to only log a DNF if I actually got to GZ, really looked, and can't find it. If I do get there and can't find it, DNF.
But if I really couldn't get to GZ, to me, it's not a DNF. It may be there, but if I can't get to GZ then I can't even tell if I can find it or not. And if I get to GZ and see it but choose not to get it and SL, it's a note. It's definitely there, but I'll admit my defeat. For the time being. A DNF on that seems contradictory.
Because of GSAK filters, depending upon location, the cache with lots of DNFs may get filtered out of normal 'searches' and end up on HC's list -- and not necessarily because it's not there.
But is that what's best? Just curious how others approach this. Maybe there is a different or better way of looking at things.
And don't get me wrong. I'm not afraid to log a DNF. This isn't about that. This is about when you don't even make it to GZ to look for it.
