Are fuel cost crimping your caching ? I'm developing acid reflux watching the Shell sta across from my office raise prices twice a day..my Suburban is a thirsty beast . Though not recommending this for anyone else, we are going to begin placing 'cluster caches' , i.e., a mixture of 3-4 ammo cans, plus 4-6 micros , all within a very close proximity. I would like to see the distance between caches waived while fuel prices are so astronomical . If there is a cluster of 10 or so caches the drive is worthwhile. Another thought is to car-pool from a pre-arranged area and share fuel cost. Could AGA have a site for those intrested in caching together ...look at the site ,see whos going and jump aboard . There has not been a summer event since last August . We could have week-end events byop ( bring your own picnic );, a couple of folks could arrive early , place some new hides ,go for it., or , just do a joint search. Perhaps this site is destineed to be an opinion page only ; not something to bring us together . Some folks have better verbal skills than oithers , but , when you meet them they turn out to be a hell of a nice person . Could the gas crunch be put to a good use? Nothing brings people together better than mutual adversity. Would AGA care to take the lead here ...this might be more fun than a barrel of monkeys. When we place our cluster they will be designated as such.
