I wasn't thinking of one particular cache, nor am I implying that all caches are tupperware containers full of trash. I guess my point is that I have seen a real decline in the quality of caches since I began geocaching in Jan. 2002. I don't trade anymore because the items that I now find in caches are rarely worth trading for. But that I have come to accept.

What disappoints me most is the number of caches out there that seem to have been placed just for the sake of placing a cache. When I first began geocaching in Arizona caches were placed in areas that had some appeal, such as an overlooked historical area, or near a scenic view, or an off-the-beaten-path trail. It was evident that the cache owner wanted to bring a person to the area for an obvious reason. Nowadays I find myself asking, "Why was I brought here?"

 Please understand these are just my thoughts; not an attempt to bash our beloved sport or any of its players. When I saw that _expression_ "junky tupperware full of trash" (or whatever it was) I just couldn't help but comment.

RE: your discussion point on micros. Well I won't even go there :-)!!
