*Note, when I mention "quality", I'm not neccessarily indicating just water-tight, maintenance-free containers, but rather caches that are interesting (scenic, clever, humorous, historic, educational, etc.), ie., the type that usually receives a lot of "favorites" points. I'd LOVE to find a power trail that is made entirely of such interesting caches, but unfortunately I've yet to find one that isn't more than a points booster with very oridinary hides taking me to very ordinary places.
I guess I have the thinking that just because you "can" place caches 0.1 miles apart, does not mean that you "should".
I know everyone likes to play the game differently, but honestly, I see very few favorite points assigned to power trail caches. This seems to indicate that although cachers will seek power trail caches, they usually aren't their preferred type of hide.
Anyone care to comment?.......
The few power trails we've got in Idaho start out nice enough and then they need owner maintenance. If a power trail isn't maintained (and I don't think many people with over 300 hides will do good maintenance) it gets old real fast finding wet and/or moldy, dirty, cracked, broken caches.
