Thot contacted me about going for Cambridge Village Kids Cache which I am pretty sure is still there, but in a not so good part of town.  It was interesting (the area, the hike, the swamps, not so much the cache) so someone should go check on it.

I'm curious as to how many people are actively trying to go after the caches from the list as a challenge to see how many of them they can get knocked off of the list.  Years ago this might have been something that we would have taken on as a challenge but we've already found so many of them that it's not something that we've pursued.

Update for GC22A8Y: It was found today by GeoOtter, WhiteLikesBugs and me. Took a lot of work to solve the cipher, and mostly because I had an extra letter hanging out in my keyphrase I prepared a couple months ago.

 

Container is is great condition, along with the log. Even the camo has held up.

I am probably going to hit that after 3G on friday if no one else has hit it yet.

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.

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.

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.

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...
