But what about when you set out but never really get to GZ to look?


Almost always a email to co if something they should know about, on my judgement. Note always if I think it helps anybody else or they would care. If just muggles and bad timing then I just pass w no log at all.
Why am I all sweatty and late? Umm...

If I dont get to GZ then I dont log a DNF. I may post a note indicating why I didnt make it if its due to some issue the CO isnt aware of.

Note to self:

1.  Wear rubber gloves and rubber boots when hunting for any cache that BB has attempted (or hidden)....

2.  Scrub down with hand sanitizer afterwards.

Larry to Bert, actual conversation:  "Hey, rule number one.  Find the cache first, okay?"

How about when you get to GZ and the soda tube is covered with a fresh frosting of pelican poo. That's what was waiting for me in the middle of Mud Lake yesterday. The pelicans and cormorants saw me coming and did what birds do. That worked out well. Only 1 log mention of it being nasty. A cache named Guano Pole would not see a many visitors. A difficulty rating of 4 or 4.5 would at least help with the grid. Just checked the attributes, it does mention scenic views, but doesn't require special tools, like dispoable gloves. I've changed plenty of diapers but never on a pelican.

You got a whole lake of water right there.... And I checked.  No bird poo attribute.  :(

 

To me, the question is - did you FIND the cache?  If you did, but didn't SL, then you don't claim a smiley.  But it's not really a DNF - after all, you found it. 

 

But that's just me.
