Not including your own geocaches, do you re-visit caches?
And I don’t mean just because you are with someone who hasn’t found the cache and you are out and about and hit a few you’ve already been to. Rather, do you go check out a cache you’ve found for whatever reason?
Maybe it’s a good spot for a travel bug hotel?
How about to pick up a trackable?
Or, the location might be really wild.
How about for swag?
I ask this as I still ponder my thoughts on archiving some of my caches. I like when caches are found, as I’m sure most geocache owners would agree. Alas, it seems like when the bulk of the local cachers clear them out, they just sit there and get hit once or twice or maybe three times a year.
Now, don’t get me wrong — I’m not in favor of a cache being archived after a few months, but if they are sitting around for a year or two and only get a few hits… well, it might be time to move on with ’em.
So back to the question at hand — going back to a cache.
I’ve done it before. Usually it’s to drop off some travel bugs or pick some up or something along those lines. When I do that, I’ll leave a note, too, to say that I’ve been there.
But a lot of caches, why go back?
So I come to you — the geocaching community — and ask: Do you re-visit caches? Why? When? How often?
