No wonder I don't get here too often. This is my personal opinion, take it for what it's worth. Of course it is my choice on what I want to do with my time, but heck, this seems a bit out-of-whack.

Caches I can do in area:


Now with Caches I can't do because I'd rather be finding caches outside, than sitting at a computer for hours on end.


I'm not saying I don't enjoy the occasional puzzle, i've certainly created a few in my day, but should not part of an approvers job be to not let an area be over-burdened with this many puzzles? They often don't allow regular caches to over-populate an area.

I love caching in this area and I miss doing so.

Looks like you still have 18 traditionals to do. That is certainly worth the 15 minute drive south. Look at all the fun you can have this winter when you are snowed in up north there. LOL.

Don't get me wrong, I totally respect the effort and do have fun with puzzles.

It's just as you say, when you make the effort to get out somewhere you want more than a handful to do. That's why I let the 'regulars' build up. Looks like a nice Autumn day of caching in South Surrey/White Rock soon. Smile

Perhaps when I am snowbound in Fraser Heights I can spend some time on these puzzles, and exercise my brain, thus delaying the early onset of Alzheimer's.

I really do enjoy getting to the area, as the weather is often nice, and there is some fantastic views, and good Fish & Chips too.

Well said CB We are currently protesting all puzzle caches unless the owner takes us to the cache or we are able to follow another cacher . Any vollunteers? Summer is to short to solve puzzles.

Maybe there is a connection between the ratio of puzzles and the median age of the area, which is about 78, isn't it?
