Yeah, you're right Barry, I don't know him from Adam nor have I even done any of his caches so I really shouldn't be drawing any conclusions. Disregard!

Barry of sweetlife

No one here is bashing him. There was a statement made by someone who had first hand dealings with him and found logging his caches difficult. I agree that the situation outlined by that person defies what I'd consider to be good sportsmanship. The purpose of this thread is to first point out that he got screwed and second to warn folks to fly straight with their own listings lest they incur the frogs wrath themselves.

..but still, I may have misspoke a bit as well. This is not about him but rather the treatment of him and EarthCachers over at GC.

To clarify....that was not CavScout's EC that was problematic for us...the line was "not the same CO as the one who was banned." We have done a couple of CavScout's ECs and had no problems with those. I was sharing a first hand example of how *some* CO's can be overzealous in these matters.

Reading the posts Ralph shared sheds some light on some of the story. CavScout sounds like he has a grip on the fact that there really is more to life than geocaching, a perspective his efforts in Iraq no doubt help to crystallize. When you're worrying about the possibility of encountering a roadside bomb, whether or not someone posts photos is kind of a small thing, right? Probably neither "side" really knows what's up. It's a shame that all that hard work just got tossed into cyberspace, though.

I just got off the phone with CavScout, and am in the process of getting him a GSAK file of all of his caches with the pictures downloaded from the GC site, he is going to get them all loaded up on Opencaching.com the new Garmin site.

It was kind of funny that he called me tonight, with all that is going on, and even funnier he is actually in Wisconsin down at Fort McCoy teaching a class and is heading back to Quatar on the 18th.

So start watching for the new caches on Opencaching.

Tell him to come look for Trash Talk This Cache in West Salem tomorrow night if he has time. He can even meet Poohs Pal! LOL

Glad to hear there's a way to help keep all that work alive.

I know he is without a vehicle, he was out with some friends and getting a ride back to the base when he called. I forgot to add that he just got a email from groundspeak and has been permanently banned now

That is too bad. I like his EC and the man, but I wish he would had given me a little time to get it right. This was at a time when I was uploading big file. Now I upload Smaller ones and it is alot faster. It is too bad that GS banned him after all of the hard work he did on the EC. Like I said before. I never said anything to GS about him. I know I should have done the pictures, but I just ran out of time and forgot.

Opencaching.US does list virtuals now. Garmin does not.
