"Back in the day", it was possible for a determined cacher to "clear out an area", and then if he/she wanted to find more caches, he/she would have to (gasp!) DRIVE FURTHER! Now, in an urban setting, we hear folks b*tch when they have to drive more than around 5 miles.

Well that's true, it sure is a drag to listen to somebody b*tch.. Smile But if you want to drive further, drive further. Why is it bad to have more caches? I don't want to spend my spare time in the car wasting gas.

It's not bad to have more caches if they're worthwhile and/or in worthwhile locations. Yet another black-painted Altoids tin 0.1 mile from the next one along a trail or under another random bridge is not worthwhile, in my opinion. Your opinion may vary.

I don't want this thread to spiral off onto this subject again, so we'll just have to respectfully agree to disagree. However, thank you for perfectly making my point in your response.

I am thinkinhg this new DISCOVERED IT will be good for us when we are doing a caching trip- like our last one(month long)- In the past I have left large Tbugs because I didn't want to carry them, and left bugs because I couldn't get them closer to their goal or find one and leave it because I know I won't be able to move it within the 2 weeks period suggested. This will give me a chance to get credit and not move it- I still will move Tbugs if I can get them closer to a goal.
