I went with my family camping this last weekend to Maple Dell Scout camp. I was there for July 4-7, enjoying the mountains and relaxing for a few days. It was a good time except for one small detail, two small details actually.
I was trying to review caches. Quite often it is a bit of work. Checking for all the possible issues and looking for problems, and most of the time publishing them. This was a holiday weekend, and cachers were out around the state placing caches wherever they could find them. So I ended up looking at all the caches that were available on my little cell phone screen. It was harder than I expected. I have done 2-3.. or even a dozen. But trying to go through 15-20 each day was a bit tricky. I cannot really leave a note for people if there was a problem, so I just tried to list the ones that I could. Sorry for those that waited until Wednesday for an answer.
I am shocked at the amount of caches that people are asking to be listed. So many new players are appearing. There are a lot of new people out to place caches, and so many are being listed. If you are from the Vernal Area you are seeing a huge group of new listings appear. Great series and trails are being worked on, and many creative and interesting caches are being listed.
I headed up to do the scout caches around the camp. I still have a number more to go. You can see above that I have done a number but I still have a few others. I normally avoid puzzle caches. (You can guess why). These are relitivly easy puzzles so I have taken the time to get them done.
Hopefully I will get up soon and do some more of them. This has been my most enjoyable series so far. I hiked about 3 miles this vacation to get a group of them. (about 10 I think).
