Walking Up to a Trashed Geocache

It is sad when walking up to a geocache that has been trashed or worse. It's easy to blame muggles but other factors can cause it. For example the weather, including wind and flooding. Snow and ice have been known to move or crush a geocache. Then there are the animals who just love getting into or carting off a container.

Many times a flimsy or poor quality container can become easy pickings. As in this case a cheaper Glad container was used and what looks like a squirrel knocked it out of it's home then made short work of it. Even if the big toothed rodent hadn't munched it, the heat and sun already was warping the container pretty bad.

I rescued two Boy Scout travel bugs and cleaned up the rest. One of the travel bug plastic bags had the top sealer chewed off. Just goes to show you that these containers area vulnerable to all sorts of situations. Always consider this when placing your geocaches.
