I've read some postings that list what people bring caching and some include a spare log book... probably a good idea so you can replace a log book that's full in a cache you visit. Maybe help the owner out a bit...

My question is:

If you come across a cache (that you don't own) with a full log book, do you always replace it? If so, what do you do with the old log book? If I were the cache owner, I'd want to keep the old book!! I guess if there's room in the cache you could leave it in there, but what if it's a nano and there's no room to leave the old book, what do you do with it?

Just wondering what the correct protocol is...

Thanks in advance for any info!!

Quite often the log book is just too wet to sign. In that case your options are to not sign (not really a good choice), or put in a new logbook or add a piece of paper. In any case it is polite to post in your log that the CO can contact you for the old log book (especially if it is just full). Quite often they don't care too much about a waterlogged book, or a nano logbook.

I had a lovely finder retrieve a very wet log book of mine (it took a swim in the Fraser River), take it home, dry it out (by ironing the pages) and then go out of her way to return it to me.

Did I appreciate that? Absolutely! I wish there were more cachers like her out there!
