Hi Everybody,
My first post to the forums. Today (and for the second time in the last year and a half!) I have found a cache floating in the Fraser River. In both cases, the original cache had gone missing and subsequently been archived by the cache owners. However, the river gods have now seen fit to place these caches in my possession. I have contacted the CO's to see if they wish to have the cache and contents returned, but the burning question for me is whether or not I should, or could, log these as finds? Anybody?

Signing the logbook constitutes a find. Go for it.

Agreed,
Amazing that you've found two caches floating in the river, quite the finds...

The only issue is you didn't find it where it was intended to be hidden. If I pull a cache and have it at home and you stop by and see it there, should you really claim a find? In the end it's what your comfortable claiming that matters.

I have one in my living room, "Froggy Went a Courtin' and those that stopy by that haven't logged it and notice it, I never point it out, but the container is cute - I let them..

In the end it's only a game, meant to be fun - and as a CO I wouldn't have an issue, as well they landed in your hands by fate.. by rescuing a cache I'd give you the rights.. Smile

Some cachers are comfortable logging a cache they can only see not sign, logging an earthcache without the leg work questions, logging puzzle caches they didn't solve...... but they do and have on my caches,,, its not worth deleting their logs for me as I have come to realize that its just a game and stats are personnal and do not reflect on me unless your ranking is higher then mine LOL.

That being said I would for sure log those caches, they bring a new meaning to "traveling caches". And every cacher has found a cache out in the open and not where the Co intended.
