However, I won't be logging it at the cache page. Why? Because the cache owner has placed some stipulations on logging the cache which IMHO are unnecessary and have nothing to do with actually finding the cache. Specifically, he states that the cache must be logged at a find count milestone or on certain anniversaries. Since on principle I cannot condone caches having restrictions irrelevant to the game, and since the numbers shouldn't matter and emphasizing find counts in this way is silly, and since I'm not finding the cache at a milestone or anniversary, I won't be logging it online.
Of course, there is no reason why I couldn't find it anyway and sign the physical logbook so that's what I did and I'll post the pictures here instead:
||Obey the sign!
Anyway, I got back to the parking area and chatted with someone there. (There I go again, talking to strangers. :) ) He's a bowhunter, and he told me that he got a GPS some time back but he hadn't been using it because he forgot how. He'd like to waypoint his deer so he could go back to his truck and bring a cart to carry it out. So I gave him a quick demonstration on setting a waypoint and following the GPS from one side of the parking area to the other. In return, he gave me some pointers on following a blood trail. (Not that I'll be using that any time but a little knowledge can't hurt.) Then we talked about some other issues such as private property and access routes, that affect both hunting and hiking.
