Since we love our activity so much and want to be admired maybe it's time to prepare for a larger than usual influx of cachers caching through on their way to GeoWoodstock? How about we all pull together and prepare? We'd all love to hear: BC caches are the best!

Hiders could replace broken, leaky containers, clean up in general. Swag can be left because of course everyone traded evenly or better so that's in better shape than the start. (little bit of humour, fyi )
Seekers could help out by carrying drying rags, baggies etc as it's giving back to help out a hider.
Thankfully most of our caches are in great shape due to conscientious owners. And we'd all benefit from those few ucky ones being aided. lol We all know the pleasure of handling a clean, dry cache! yum.

I always carry with me a drying rag or three, extra log books pencils and sharpeners, zip lock bags and a container. This way if I come across a container that is wrecked I can do some cache maintenance on it right away and then email the owner when I get back.
I have three caching bags and in each one there is spares of everything including a new cache in case I find the perfect place to put it when out.
I think it is a great Idea to help make BC known for its caches and not so much for the BUD lol

I can't count how many times TESKELLY has replaced broken caches, or how many times we have replaced swag in caches due to it being rusted or all wet, or even the log books.
If we don't have a rag, I just use my shirt....lol
We usually carry around baggies and extra log books with us...not really cache containers, but if the van is near, ya never know, it could be one of those days. Smile

I agree, though. It is great to be able to help out the CO and save them the trip of having to rush out to the cache to put in a new log book, or swag, or a baggie/pencil. Those are not heavy items to carry on your person, so really it isn't too much to ask a cacher.
It is something that should be added to taking part in the sport I believe. Smile

Chris was over on the Lower Mainland yesterday for meetings and took a friend's GPS that was behaving questionably. He was putting it through it's paces to make sure it didn't get sent back to Garmin unnecessarily. Chris decided to find a cache... he didn't have our caching bag and he only had time for one... he picked GCQ1DQ - Box City Corral.

This cache really needs some TLC Yuck . It woudn't be so bad if it was seldom visited but it looks like it's got a 'cacher magnet' in it with over 200 finds! The cache owners are in Edmonton and are actively on the gc.com site.

What we'd do in this situation is offer to adopt it and then replace it with a new container, etc. OR ask them if they would consider archiving it and offer to go and remove the 'geojunk' for them. This isn't an area we can look after of course, so perhaps someone who goes by this area could send them a note...
