I was long a geocacher in the past and stopped for awhile and recently joined back up, bought a house across the street from a nice park and I wanted to provide a safe cache. There use to be a cache in the park but there were too many mugglers, and it was small and exposed to weather. That cache has since been removed, and I placed a very solid, weatherproof cache in the back of my yard in a safe, easy to find area, good parking, away from the busy park traffic, and thought it would be great for the kids, cachers. Also filled it with trackables and other items. Well the closest cache to me was .1 miles away, and I have now been denied 3 times saying there is a premium puzzle cache too close to me.
Are we really blocking out high quality, safe caches, filled with items, not just a log, lots of trackables inside, which are located in safe, private areas, which are open to all basic members, all because there is a single premium puzzle which is a few feet too close?
There are parts in my town where there are 10+ caches located within the .1 miles of each other, they all seem to have been added just fine, but when I add 1 in the part of town where there are the least caches, then it gets denied?
I understand if things are getting too saturated, but this it the least saturated part of town, and also its not like I can pick up and move my house/yard to a better location.
Sorry for the long drawn out post, I am just highly disappointed.
