To all SLAGA members:
Here is a note I posted on the above mentioned cache:
In answer to the previous DNF note I thought I would defend myself against the 
slightly veiled accusations. 
1st: This is an OLD cemetery that is not maintained very well or at all by the 
locals. The rundown appearance is part of the mystique of the place. It was NOT 
caused by geocachers.
2nd: The wall was in the shape it is in now when I placed the cache and has not 
changed much in the time the cache has been in place. IT was NOT torn down by 
geocachers looking for the cache. I am sure some rocks were moved but in the 
case of the wall it did nothing to destroy it.
3rd: Yes I did get permission to place the cache there and as to the damage 
caused by cachers please see the first two points.
4th: I am tired of being dumped on about this cache...it is in a very cool and 
historic location....you see some very interesting and exotic country....there 
is an old fashioned country store there that is almost worth the trip in itself 
which is why I set the cache in the first place. The cache itself is almost 
secondary to the things you see on the way and while you are in the 
The cache is difficult yes but is not anymore difficult than some others I have 
done...you DO NOT have to destroy anything to find it....it is located under a 
couple of rocks in the wall but in almost every case I have checked on it there 
was a portion of the cache visible if you look close enough.....
5th: I am seriously thinking of archiving this cache as it has proved too 
difficult for a lot of people and it is too far away for me to maintain it 
So if you have had this one on your to do list ...you might want to do it quick
As stated in the log I am thinking VERY seriously about archiving this 
cache....it is difficult to maintain and with the price of gas going as high as 
it is I do NOT want to have to drive 45 to 50 minutes out of my way to check on 
a cache I am sure is there but just not found.
So for those of you who have not found it yet you might want to consider going 
for it soon.
