Upset the locals
« on: February 22, 2014, 06:57:57 pm »
I thing I may have upset the Worcestershore/Warwickshire locals. There is a new cache http://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC4XYQD_stop-whining?guid=1fcb97e8-73a3-4816-9eab-d887c19c8490 just been released that you have to find some TB's to get the co-ords for the cache. Now it just so happened that the 1st two TB's to be released gave me pretty much the location of the cache, after looking at Memory Map.

Should I feel guilty for finding the cache after finding only 2 of the 6 required TB's or is it just the way the cookie crumbles.

I had noticed this one when it was published but chasing TB's can be very frustrating.

If the CO has made it easy to guess the location, then isn't that part of the game. We all know the last digit in co-ordinates quite often isn't required to find a cache, so that only left four TB's to find. Memory Map is great for checking co-ordinates/possible locations and is just part of the many tools available to cachers.

So I wouldn't feel guilty, just eat the cookies :)

I'd feel proud of myself if I had worked out the final by just finding 2 of them. Well done! :)

And I think you know who I mean

Did one where you had to find two TB's. One with the North Co-ords, the other with West co-ords.
Found them both, but another cacher did it with only one found TB.
(Did help that the cache page gave the name of the woods the cache was in, and parking co-ords. The other cacher just walked along the co-ords from the one TB as best they could, looking for possible places to hide a cache)

If it can be done without finding all the TB', go for it!
(Now going to see which two you found, could make life a little easier!)
I have a Geocaching problem...
Work gets in the way!

There are many ways to find mystery caches, one thing that always amazes me is when people take a photo of themselves at gz and then upload them, with the geotagged location included...  ;)

You found the cache. You signed the log book (presumably  :D).

Therefore you can log it online, in my view.

It would be like saying that if you found cache by accident you couldn't log it - you have found the cache, regardless of any puzzle!  :)

Even better that you've at least found two of them - so well done, and don't feel guilty  ;D
