Not having a fancy modern interweb phone gadget I am often unable to log a tracker into a cache for several hours, sometimes even a day. Frequently they get grabbed by a following cacher before I have chance to log on. This is not necessarily bad practice as it shows exactly where the tracker actually is. However, the problem becomes that unless the grabber ‘visits’ the tracker into that cache, the mileage total and travel map for that tracker becomes incorrect. I have been known, in instances when trackers I have placed are never actually logged into or visit the cache, to grab it back and ‘replace it’, so to speak, in that cache and then e-mail the person who grabbed the tracker inviting them to re-retrieve it, thus correcting it’s mileage. Bad practice, maybe? GH.
