Reply To: More Caches Needing Adoption!


What’s worth saving is obviously a hugely subjective view, and happily one that an individual cacher can take for themselves when asked to adopt, or even perform running maint on someone else’s cache.

Some consideration for longevity might skew such a decision, an otherwise nondescript cache that is 7 or more years old I would consider taking on if it was convenient, just to keep a few oldies around – helps those who are trying to complete various other challenges or grids based on age.

But I’m rarely glad to see any cache go, especially as a forced archiving by a reviewer, since the story behind that is usually that the CO has lost the will to maintain the cache, usually having given up geocaching entirely.
