I have been noticing a lot of caches going missing in Colorado. Not just by local muggles, but by people who have exact coordinates. Anyone with any comments on this please speak up. I have a feeling these are rebel cachers who are in this for nothing but harm to our sport.

I just started caching and wondered if this happened, but I pushed it off with the reasoning of "who would go through so much trouble if they don't enjoy caching genuinely like the rest of us?"

They will eventually get bored with their activity, and I have an unlimited supply of ammo cans and energy :P

We have a pretty well organized butt face here in central phoenix right now. he leaves lovely little orange stickers that originally screamed ignorance and now have been shortened and just scream jerk face

Just for clarification...

Rebels have causes, Pirates are cool.

These guys are called "Cache Maggots"

Cache Maggots sounds a little weak to me. And we have a real #$%*_)( jerk here in AZ that stole GC 57. And this is one of the real old Icons of caches here is AZ.

Something to remember is the angrier you get, the more the maggot feeds on it.
I've had like 8 stolen then made all my trads and easy puzzles PMOs. no more sticker issues.
I never rehide a stolen cache in the same spot.

I maintain that area in my GSAK db and I was wondering why there are so many archived caches from that area, MY sister lives there and I plan on caching there big time so day.

Does anyone have an idea if the missing caches were all public or did they include premium? This may be a clue to finding the person(s). Anyone have a good list?
