Pens in caches
« on: June 10, 2015, 07:27:09 pm »
If a pen/pencil is included within a cache, do you use it when signing the log, or do you tend to always use your own anyway?

It tends to vary for me, but it would be useful to have popular opinion before buying a load of pens/pencils to place in my new caches! :D

Thanks  :)

I think most cachers carry pens when on a planned day out, but, as often happens with me travelling around I can sometimes be found wanting for a pen in my car.

So to answer your question, Yes and No. I hope that clarifies the situation.

Carry a pen for work, always use my own pen when signing the log.

(Mind you, most of the caches I've been finding recently have been micro/nano's, writing implement NOT included!  :D)
I have a Geocaching problem...
Work gets in the way!

Very rarely do I use a cache writing implement.

I keep a pen in the car as well as a couple in my bag :)

My own caches, I don't like leavings pens, rather leave pencils as these don't leak or freeze in winter.
