    Default National Triust pseudo caches.

    One of my TB's recently went missing in Kinver Edge NT. As far as I can gather the NT use their own unpublished caches for some training/educational purpose.
    Last logs....

    2/Oct/2012 teamwalters grabbed it
    Moved it to a cache nearby owned by Kinver Edge National Trust. Sorry
    don't know cache name as I don't think it's been logged.

    28/Sep/2012 teamwalters
    discovered it Found it in Kinver Rock and Roll (GC3HYTV) cache.
    Moved it to National Trust cache nearby.

    I wrote to Kinver Edge NT and received this reply today,
    according to Laura Broadhurst, NT Kinver Edge,

    "Sorry I just wanted to let you know that I didn't find the travel bug, not
    all of our caches were still in place though - they quite often get stolen
    up there."

    Is there any way we can stop this pilfering/looting of genuine geocaches for use in private unpublished pseudo caches?

    You will find that they are probably not "pseudo" caches, but are genuine. But due to the Sponsorship Deal between the NT and Garmin, are solely listed on Garmin's Listing Site. Part of the Deal was the supply of GPSr's for each site, a selection of boxes and Posters advertising Garmin's Listing Site.

    The NT loan out the GPSr's so people can go and find their caches.

    Thanks, we live and learn. I'll have to request my TB's only be placed in geocaching.com caches in future. :wacko:
