  This is exactly why I haven't placed a cache yet.  

  Glad you said this first. I was trying to figure out a way to say the same 
thing but I have a tendency to be wordy (yeah really ..) and you went straight 
to the point. I have three uncached  parks very near me and we've concocted a 
great little story for them -- but one involves variations on balls and the 
other involves girl things. NOT what some people are looking for in way of 
trade items.  I've had these caches made and ready to go for a while now, but 
haven't put them out for "fear" of alienating people I've never MET  LOL.  The 
parks are well-maintained, have very nice playgrounds and a couple of miles of 
trails.  However,  being an overthinker, I wonder do I bother to go through 
with this and disappoint an experienced group of people I don't know or go 
ahead and see what happens.

  My nearly 6 yr old daughter enjoys the walks, the hunt, doesn't balk at a 
micro and is even learning to use the GPSr. Had we recently come across a McToy 
in the form of the miniature black Barbie within the last month it certainly 
would have thrilled her and saved ME $2.99 at a drive through.  McToys, for 
what they are, are lovely little things. Where else can you get a Little Person 
for free? 

  No we haven't even broken 50 yet in our finds. But, we've enjoyed every cache 
we've done either solo or as a family. We've learned something on each one and 
left with  more than a trade item.  But, I have to agree with Laura (aka 
Purple) here -- getting out and placing one is quite intimidating.
