Totally agree. Having found just short of 4000 caches we have never asked for clues to where a cache is if we can’t find it, nor do we do puzzle caches without solving them ourselves, and all of them we have physically found the cache. We get great pleasure in a find, particularly if it’s taken us a few attempts. For example your Red Herring Trail took many visits to complete but we found it in the end and had great satisfaction. There are a few caches that we have looked for on more than one occasion but are still yet to find them, but we will persevere. This is the way we enjoy geocaching, but everyone is different, but certainly it must be more satisfying to have genuinely ‘found it’ yourself?
