    Some of you may have noticed that I have just adopted the whole Dartmoor Myths & Legends series from Cantor Clan as it was in danger of being archived and I believe it to be a very worthwhile series, certainly worth preserving, especially as these are some of the oldest caches on Dartmoor, dating back to 2005.

    Unfortunately 6 of the 10 caches require maintenance and the 11th (Hairy Hands) has already been archived. I will get around to all of the caches as soon as possible and maintain as necessary. If possible, I will also get the Hairy Hands cache reinstated so there will once again be a full set, all with the correct bonus codes. However, this is not going to happen overnight, so please bear with me until such time as I can achieve this.

    And before anybody asks – no, I have not yet found all of these caches myself; and yes, I will be logging finds on those I haven’t yet found. But, I promise not to log the bonus until I have completed the whole series 😉

    If you have adopted these caches you cannot log them, I remember you saying to me that you must NOT log your own caches. You adopt them they are them yours.

    Hook, line and sinker again Station Master and it’s not even April Fool’s Day! This could be a better hobby than geocaching. Wind ’em up, reel ’em in!

    Why am I not surprised that instead of getting thanked by Station Master for saving this series of caches so that others, like him, will still have the opportunity to find them, just as anticipated he has jumped right in with this post.

    I have not placed these caches and don’t even know where some of them are, so yes, as stated above I will be logging finds on them when I find them – that seems perfectly reasonable to me and probably to every other cacher. However, I will not be logging them should I have to archive any!

    We will look forward to completing this series in the future.

    The only one of our own caches that we have found is one that we had found before adopting it.

    Dave – for some reason the cache descriptions of Myths and Legends still say they are owned by the Cantor Clan – no mention of having been adopted but perhaps you haven’t changed that yet! – but if you click on the Cantor Clan it takes you to your profile! Very confusing for anyone who doesn’t know what’s going on!!!

    It will be nice to know they are up and running properly when you’ve had time to sort them out.

    It appears that when you publish a cache, the “a cache by” field defaults to the person who is publishing the cache, but this can be overwritten to anything you like. When you adopt a cache, this field isn’t changed in the adoption process, but it is linked to the new cache owner, and the words (as opposed to the link) can be changed.

    I will be changing these to acknowledge that the caches were placed by Cantor Clan, but that I have adopted them.

    Not hook line and sinker just stating what you are against. But its only a game and I love it. But I must say Dave thanks for adopting them, and seeing you have not been there yet I will let you claim as a find. I have a somewhere on Dartmoor Travel bug that I will be taking to Scotland to a very remote place.

    New cache placed today, together with bonus information, and now in accordance with the hints. If anybody has already logged this as found and needs the bonus information, I will be happy to supply it.

    Wow, Scotland and back in under 6 hours! Station Master must have his own private jet! I hope he dipped it in some interesting caches and put a few miles on it!

    wish I had!
    It was great up on Dartmoor, only walked 5 miles but it was warm, no wind and clear, what else would we want. Nearly forgot got four caches along the way as a bonus.

    Thanks Dave, glad you got the FTF while doing the maint too. 🙂

    Do I now need to revisit the ones that didn’t have the bonus info when I visited?

    This is confusing as I now need to amend my DartmoorDave=CO -> ignorelist filter … 🙂

    No, I’m not asking anybody to revisit a cache they have already logged. If you have already logged it I will provide the code, but not yet as I don’t know them all! If anybody reading this has completed the series and has kept a full list of the codes, please email it to me as Cantor Clan haven’t been able to provide this yet.

    I think most cache owners wish they could set up a list of cachers who can’t see their caches 🙂

    WOW, Dave. You are keeping yourself very busy I see. Thanks for taking on the series. It is one of my favourite ones out there and it would have been a shame to lose it.
