If there are any caches available in the Fairbanks, AK area, I would love to adopt it.

Hide & Seek is one of those moving caches that is no longer approved. This one is was placed in January 2002 and has survived nicely with many finds. It is currently in the Bend, Oregon area and I'm the most recent finder. It is suppose to stay in Oregon.

The trouble is that the owners last checked in September 2003 and are listed as "Not Validated Member." The email <j.hendershott@verizon.net> given on the cache page is not current. To work properly someone needs to adopt it and maintain the cache page with new coordinates when it is moved. Also, the cache type should probably be changed to "Mystery." Physical maintenance for this type of cache depends greatly on the finders but has not been a problem in nearly 3 years.

Anyone want to take ownership? I like these kinds of caches (in small doses) and would hate to see it go away, so I'd be happy to take it if no one else expresses an interest.

When adopting a cache we first make sure that the cache meets current guidelines and unfortunately moving caches are no longer permitted. The best thing would be for a local to pick it up and post a 'should be archived' note. The cache can be fixed up and recreated as a 'Memorial' cache.


If you need any help getting this done please feel free to email me.

The Annette Lake Trail cache needs some work. The owner's last visit to the site was last year (only 3 months after signing up) and has no logged finds.

I sent an e-mail last week offering help but I haven't gotten a reply. Since I just put a cache at the lake it would be easy for me to maintain this one as well.

I spotted another cache that I would be willing to adopt. Tie Mill on Squak Mountain (GC4B3) is listed as belonging to don & Linda who don't appear to be to have a valid log in any longer. I'd be happy to adopt this cache if don & Linda are in fact no longer involved in geocaching.

I should add in here as well the Bullitt Fireplace Cache (GCC3B0). I'd be happy to take over this one as well.

Hmm, It looks like I own this one now. I had expected a transfer notification. Oh well, thanks.

Marcus, no need for a maintenance visit on Annette Lake Trail. I removed the ragged bag and it was hidden well by Runhills. It should be fine for the winter. Peace, Nolenator

It looks like The Big Yak in Yakima has been archived, but needs a rescue party to remove it.

I looked at both of these caches.

Tie Mill (GC4B3) is listed as being owned by dmollick who is still somewhat active. It looks like the cache is in good shape so unless the current owner wishes to give up ownership I don't see any need to take action at this point.


Bullitt Fireplace Cache (GCC3B0) is owned by Too Cool who is still active and signing in to the site so again it is fine as is for now.

Great, glad the owners are still active and things seem to be in order.

I know this is not in the NW, but I need some help or guidance. I have found a cache (GCG3PN) in Oklahoma City, OK. When I found it, it was soaking wet and one of the other cachers that was with me said "Had things growing inside it." I did drain the water out of it. What I want to know is how do I adopt this cache? I have been told by other GC members in my area that the owner quit GC and does not answer E-mails. I have a new container, logbook and a few other things to start it off with, but want to make sure it is ok to just walk up and change things to the cache. Does anyone know who I can talk to about it?

Thank you,
Maxwell Q

BTW, a cacher from the NW told me to come here when I went caching with in New Mexico last weekend.

Maxwell Q,

You should contact your local reviewer Nuxly about this cache. He can help you adopt this cache so you can fix it up.

I found Deep in the Wild Wood in Puyallup/South Hill (Wildwood Park) yesterday and it was a real mess. See my post. I was going to contact the owner, hunkofgod, but I see that he is no longer a "Validated Member" and has not logged in since 5/30/2004. I live a bit too far away (Edmonds) to adopt it myself, but there must be someone nearby who can at least add a new (dry) log book.

Here is another that needs adoption, Forbes Cache. Read the recent logs, there was only a ziploc bag left. I hid a new container nearby, and took the ziploc bag.

I'm willing to adopt, but maybe someone who lives really close would like to?

Batter Up Music Cache in Richland needs a new container. The coffee can lid is just two broken chunks of plastic. The owner hasn't visited the site since last December.

Mac boX .WA is up for adoption. I have already picked up the original logbook as requested by the owner and will be mailing it to him. I placed a new logbook and some additional items in the cache. The cache does not see much traffic but with a new cache nearby I thought I could adopt it and keep it open for a while.

That's been transfered to you now.

Was at a very nice cache, certainly worthy of keeping. Logbook was full and didnt have one with me to place in cache. emailed owner but email bounced back as undeliverable. Owner joined in Jan 03 placed cache Jan 03 and last visited geocaching.com Feb 03.

So I assume they are no longer active. The cache is Burrows Island, GCC5FB. Anacortes, WA. Absolutly beautiful Pacific Northwest views from here.

What do we now do to have someone volunteer to take ownership of this cache?

Here's one that needs re-enabled.

For some reason the owners disabled the cache but people keep finding it.
They haven't logged in since July so I don't know if they are still around.

I'm never in the area so I don't want to adopt it but maybe someone in that area could.

I've posted an adoption request note to the cache page for this cache. Hopefully someone will step up and take care of this one.

I can take care of it. I live about 2 miles from there. I also know it to be a convenient access cache.

Lthrwrk,

When you were last there, was the container in OK shape? Did it just need a logbook and maybe some new loot?

I can get to it early on Saturday morning.

The swag was in OK shape more than a little bit of junque. Would have replaced the logbook if I had a spare.. now I insure that I have a couple with me when going out.

As I recall the contents were only a little damp. Container in good shape. It seems like so many caches ago heheh.

I stopped at this cache today and did some maintenance:

- Swapped the leaky plastic cache container for an ammo can.
- removed the tired and torn plastic bag
- Added a pile of new treasure
- Added a new logbook
- Put the old log book in a new ziplock, marked it as full, and put it back in the bottom of the container
- added a small ziplock for the small and delicate treasures
- replaced and scattered the ridiculous pile of sticks used as 'hiding material' with some bark segments that cover it in a more stealthy fashion


I also added the cache to my watchlist so that I can keep an eye on how it all holds up.

There's a cache in Kenmore calledThe Invisible Pond My daughters live about a block from this cache, so I go by here all the time. I've found it on the ground and in pieces at least 3-4 times since this summer. I see the owner hasn't logged in since Aug 2003. I'd be willing to adopt this cache if need be.

Edit, I heard back from the cache owner and he went ahead and disabled the cache. This cache isn't in any special place, but would be a shame to see another one go by the wayside with so many finding it.

Who wants all the work it would take to make those caches work? Noctournal Omissions is GONE. All the glint stuff is gone, we went out and double checked last summer (you are welcome). Rainbow Kisser is GONE. We double checked this one last summer as well.
And the Brew caches- thanks, but no thanks. There would be so much work to make those work correctly that why should someone want to bother. When a local starts placing caches in that area, I'm sure someone will clue them in to the abandoned vacation caches along the path. Maybe in a year or so there will be someone local who can figure out the clues from the archived pages and find the caches and use them to place some nice caches of their own. ;)
I'm sure your caches near home are nice but 3 of these caches had serious problems. The one you did try to fix took lots of cajoling from us and we live over 150 miles away from them. And the Brew caches still have serious problems with the multi steps.
The only caches anyone could even adopt would be the Brews and in their cases, why not just contact the Great Falls geocaching group- GFGF on Smartgroups.com- and see what response you get there.

I think that you'd need to contact the owner or attempt to contact the owner before any change of status. More than one attempt would probably be needed. I think a visit to the site would be required and a physical notice would need to be placed in the cache (it might even ask for volunteers to adopt the cache as well as serve to inform the owner of possible adoption).

Any word on the Scintillefamily caches that were put up for adoption. I emailed them and offered to take Wilcox Flag Park , got an email back saying ok and that they would contact admin, but have not heard any thing back. I have a new ammo can ready and camouflaged to fit the area and just waiting to put it out.

I think that Jory-Ville: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...00-147772c8a869

... could use a new caretaker. The owner hasn't logged into the website since July of 2003, and email bounces back as a nonexistent account. When we were out there this past weekend, it was rather visible, and there was moldy dog food, mustard packets, etc inside the cache. The container is also not as waterproof as it could be, anymore, and the TB that's listed as in it, hasn't been in it since sometime in 2003 (May, I think?). We cleaned it up and camoflaged it as best we could, and would be quite willing to adopt it and take over maintenance and all on a more formal basis. It's a nice spot.

I've posted a note on the cache page. If I don't hear back from them in a week I'll consider the adoption. Please email or PM me to confirm that you'd like to adopt this cache.

Thanks,

I just got a phone call from 4chin seeker, who is leaving the Northwest and moving to California. He asked me to post to the forum that his caches in WA are up for adoption. He doesn't currently have reliable internet access, but would appreciate a phone call from people interested in adopting one or several of his caches. His mobile number is: 425-931-9980
Thanks!

First we will need to see if the cache is still there. If it is still there then we can see about getting it fixed up and adopted. If it is missing, as it seems, then the cache should be archived.

4Parks (GC45B5) has been archived for almost a year, but all the waypoints are still active. I'd love to adopt that one. I'd need to add another waypoint to get the final away from another cache, but that wouldn't be a problem for me.

The best thing in this case would be to submit a new cache page.

I was wondering if I could adopt D.C CACHE GC156B

I've tried contacting the owner about it but the email bounced back.

I'm in the area every few weeks visiting family so maintaing it would be easy.

I'm not sure what you'd actually be adopting. Did you actually find the micro that's supposed to be there?

We stopped briefly while on our honeymoon, but like everyone else logged it 'virtually'. While it might possible be a good place for a physical cache there's nothing in the area that really works as a virtual. If I get to vote, I'd say archive the old cache and open up the area to someone active.

But that's just me...

Before an adoption is considered I review the cache to make sure it meets current guidelines. Since this cache doesn't meet the current listing guidelines for a virtual cache, and the physical container is missing, I've archived the listing.

I think this is the best way to handle a cache like this because it allows an active local to place a new cache at this spot.

I'd like to adopt GC1654 by Dan Saimo. It seems to be in bad shape based on the last log and his other nearby cache GC7466 seems to have degraded to junk status. He has not logged in since November of '04.

Well it looks like he visited the site yesterday. I've posted a note to the cache page asking him to fix it up. We'll just keep an eye on it and see what happens.

I noticed that gc407b Point-no-point beach cache had been archived. I was introducing a new friend to geocaching and Had a spare ammo box so I decided to put another Point No Point cache out.

The listing will be visible once it has been approved.
