Dissapointing items in cache

Post by steamtrain13583 » 29 March 13 8:31 am

Well i went a great location today with great rock formation this was overshadowed by what i found in the cache, ciggarettes!!! Unbelievable if i had kids it would be disgusting if they found that, there was other rubbish in there i cleaned it out and threw it in a garbage bag in my car, being relative new im glad its the only one ive encountered like that, rant over! Sorry just made me :( :x :x :x :evil: ](*,) #-o

Well you could have lit one up, leaned back on the rock, puffed out a cloud of smoke and said something like "don't you just love the fresh air in the bush!"

Steamtrain, I understand your anger and concern.

Over the years we have found quite a lot of inappropriate things in caches. We generally remove the dirty, damaged, or inappropriate items and replace them with something more suitable.

Some people are unaware of the rules and/or the reasons for banning some items. Sometimes a muggle has found the container and is using it for storage.

You did the right thing.

Just to highlight the opposite, I completed a series yesterday with my 8 yr old and every cache had her rummaging through in delight as there were some great age appropriate swaps. That said I fear it won't last long as these caches are in town and are new, so over time I fear the swaps will disappear, but they certainly made an 8yr olds day yesterday :D =D>
