    Why, when we spend so long setting up caches that are in interesting locations, or take a bit of working out to find do people still just log TFTC, yet if they can't find one in a series go in to a long winded explanation about how they tried to find it. :angry:

    It's a truism that if you annoy people 90% of them will tell someone else about it but if you make them happy 90% of them wont bother to tell anyone....

    Interesting question. I can tell you from our experience there's a couple of things that influence the online logs:

    *The cache itself and the journey to it and the find might have been dull or we might be writting up the logs exhausted.

    * If the little ones type the online log you can get anything from thanks to a long winded write up lol

    * If we've had a fun time we always feel compelled to write it up.

    * If it's part of a long series we tend to make a short note for each cache, but never just a TFTC, and then a longer post at the last cache saying what fun we had, and a big thanks to the cache setter.

    * Generally however we always recognise however good or bad the cache someone went to the trouble of setting it out so we tend to write up a little more than just TFTC
    We're NOT lost !!! We're just not quite sure where we are

    I'd have thought that choosing to go and find the cache in the first place covered that angle.

    Sometimes there may not be a lot to say if you walked straight up to the cache for an easy find. DNF logs can be a lot more interesting because the cacher spent much longer hunting forthe cache, so more chance of interesting things happening.

    I hate the ones where they write a long spiel about how they woke up and decided to go caching and rang their friends and off they set etc etc - and copy and paste this long story for every cache they found that day with nothing added or changed.

    Isn't it the same mentality that drives people with dogs to pick up their dog's mess, and put it in a plastic bag, and then whizz the bag into the nearby woodland, hang it from a fence, or add it to a pile of poo bags started by someone else at the side of the path.:wacko:

    I sometimes wonder whether dog poo bags are the new cairns!
