Hmm, by the looks of things, this is now happening on a greater scale  ::)

A TB has picked up several thousand miles. The owner has found both the cache it was placed in and the one it was retrieved from.

But they haven't logged the TB - another 'cacher' retrieved and placed it in the cache, and has logged a found too - but not on the cache they retrieved it from - but the TB owner has found that one  :-\

Both accounts logged the cache the TB is in now on the same date.

Not going to rush to accusations, but what do you think? I may be blowing this out of proportion - or am I?

I smell a rat  :o. But am I bothered....... Not really, people choose how they play the game. **** happens.

I could have got a friend to take mine to Canada but there didn't seem much point.

The Cuban ones appear to have their own security guard, who likes bribes...  :o

The two TB's that got 'lost' in New Zealand have found their way to Australia, the owners will no doubt be pleased that not only have they turned up but have racked up more mileage.

BREAKING - Am I the only one to have noticed this or has this only just been logged?

HKMHill's Footballer has made it to Brazil! Not only this, but into the APE cache!  ;D

Now to check whether alias dummy accounts have logged it to there - hopefully not and we have our first winner crowned  :)

EDIT: Valid drop as far as I can tell.  :)

I hadn't noticed - well done to HKMHill and even more amazing it made it to the Project APE cache.

But there is a big BUT, looks like the cacher dipped the TB on route, picked it up in Cuba and the first dip was in Salzburg, Austria :(

Is there another footballer in the Ape cache?

Talking to HKMHILL today and he reckons the other footballer in the ape cache picture could be Calabrian Dreamers but has not been logged in for some strange reason.

Yes! I've looked at the photo and the other footballer matches Calabrian Dreamers'!

So that already brings up the job of working out who got there first - and the validity of Calabrian Dreamers' move (remember their other account logged it... See previous post from Feb 6th  :D)
