I am disapointed also
I agree with Twooldcrows. I am disappointed in how some others are playing this game also.

And another thing.
Several weeks ago some out of town cachers came through and found a bunch our of caches. Every one of the logs read the same thing. We spend a lot of time and effort placing caches (which we love to do), but they couldn't take the time or effort to write two sentences. They just copied and pasted the same log entry over and over. They even logged how they "enjoyed the hike" on our caches that are drive up. Now that tells me it's all about the numbers.
But I must respectfully disagree with some points. I don't see any friction among cachers, except perhaps for the occasional Troll in the forums. I think the so called "competition" to place better caches is very good for the game.
I remain firm that I have never met a fellow cacher that I didn't like.
