Re: [gpsstash] Joshua Tree caches removed


Florian,
I have to agree with you. The NPS would have gained a lot more from pushing the "Cache in Trash out" theme than removing your cache.

And something else... After i placed the cache i picked up 4 or 5 beer cans, a bottle, plus some other trash on my way back to my truck. I took out much more foreign material than i put in. The NPS would have better spent their time picking up garbage than they did in finding and removing a cache.

Sorry, just needed to vent a bit.

One of the removed caches, the Fargo Underground, is a 3 mile hike into a wilderness area. (I walked in to place the cache.) It had been in place over a month without any visitors. The ranger that removed it was the first person to find it! While i was placing the cache 4 motorcycles illegally drove down the canyon unhindered. Those 4 bikes, and certainly there are lots more based on the tracks along the wash, impact the area thousands of times more than my little Altoids tin cache ever would. Of course, you have to actually catch illegal motorcylists and they just stay in the wilderness since the NPS won't drive there either.
