A Point to ponder – The Makings of a great cache

In this series I am hoping to stimulate thought and discussion about geocaching topics that make me curious.

What makes a truly great cache, I am sure this question will bring much different answers from different cachers and well of course a very different answer from those of outside our community. The answer I give might even vary by the day that I give the answer.

A Point to Ponder - Apreciating our hiders

In this series I am hoping to stimulate thought and discussion about geocaching topics that make me curious.

There are a group of cachers that without whom we would have no game to play. Those within our ranks that take their time, and money to place and maintain all those containers we so enjoy finding. What do they do it for?

Do they do it for the glory? The fame?

I don't think so. I think they do it for a smile, you know the smile we all get when after reaching ground zero we look and discover the container, that smile that reflects the true root of why we cache.
