None.

The nastiest emails I have got from cachers has been from Trackable related issues.

Don't and won't move them.

My preference is for coins. But all of mine have gone missing :(
I prefer TBs to move, they are easiest

I hate to leave trackables in caches, but they don't really float my boat. I tend to log them, then leave them in the next appropriately sized cache. I prefer coins as they often look decent and not just a maccas toy with a TB as I see most dog tags have been adorned with.

Haven't had nasty emails, but I have most certainly had the funniest (& naive) ones from trackable owners. (And one trackable in a cache of mine could have ended quite differently)

Probably 10 times or so now, I have been asked by a trackable owner (outside the ACT, more often overseas), if I could just pop out and get their trackable which has been in one of my caches for the last 3 years. (they often just give the url)
OK, I check the cache - and promptly ROFL.
They have NO IDEA!!!!!!
The cache hasn't been found for 3+ years, a 4+ difficulty & 4+ terrain. Quite often a minimum of a 3-4 hr bush bash walk in Namadgi NP, just to get the cache. Not something one just pops out too.
If only they looked at that, and it seems they haven't looked at Google earth satellite view either.
Some from Europe & the ******* USA seem to think the Australian Alps is populated with little villages, B&B's and whatever, like in the Northern Hemisphere, and I can just drive nearby. They have said so!
When I refuse saying why, I never hear from them again!! One apologised.

As for the trackable that nearly ended quite differently, two young Czech tourists were lucky to return! They had NO IDEA! They specifically diid one cache just to get a mates Geocoin!

I used to be keen on finding trackables and would make quite long trips to find ones I'd not seen before.
I also have released 90, of which only about 15 are still "alive".
Now I only pick up and move them if I see they have been released by a newbie who wants to see them travel.
