GCPC EPISODE 437 – Stolen Geocaches – Why?

HHH:
The geotrash zinger zapper shows up every few years
Can’t understand the need to steal ammo box geocaches – saving for the zombie apocalypse?
Is the only replacement the micro? Then what?
Chaining down ammo boxes?

SB:
Its a shame and then we all wonder why there are no ammos out there. Was not muggled, bad apple cachers.
off topic. When checking on one, noticed that a high profile couple from WI replaced instead of logging a DNF. No wonder high numbers, they NEVER dnf a cache. Don’t just drop!

CS:

TAZ:
I know this past year in the Houston Area that Ammo can’s seemed to be coming up missing. I personally DNF’d several that turned out to be stolen ammo can’s. One was during international CITO day – luckily the cache owner was at the CITO.
If they’re in areas that are more publicly accessible, I’ve cabled the Ammo cans I’ve put out and used crimp connectors to make them more permanent. The one I didn’t do this to went floating down the Brazos River last May (only a few feet from cresting the levee)
Talking to folks at events, it seems that even cabled Ammo Cans were susceptible. People had been using bolt/wire cutters to cut the tethers and in one case snapped the small tree to get the Ammo can. Really people, go to a frigging Army Surplus store already.

Listener Insights:

Timothy – They want to hide them there self. This happened up here in NY. We finally got the person.

Debra – I have an ammo can out but it is right across the road from my house so maybe that will be a deterrent

GCPC EPISODE 432 – 2016 Geocaching Resolutions

2016 Resolutions

HHH:
The first half of the year was fun but the second half has been very rough year this year. Things should be looking up as soon as next week which will allow both myself and wife Amy get out more which means more geocaching.

Other geocaching goal hints:
Set actual numbers of which you want to achieve
Set achievements you never did before – get out there and explore
Try different aspects of geocaching you never did before – host an event, go for a different type of geocache type, take on a geocaching challenge.

SB: more finds than this year, my lowest year this year since 2010 (1600)
Hit 3 new states

CS:

TAZ:
Get back out active caching (once my knee heals up)
Get more familiar w/ my new local cachers
Cut my Open Jasmer’s in half (i.e. get Aug or Sept 2000 cache)
Cut my Alpha Numeric Challenge open in Half (need to find a cache with the owner that starts with 3 or 5)
Find at least half of the puzzles that I’ve solved in my new caching area.
