Place the caches that please you, and in the end you will also please others. Not everyone is going to be a fellow traveller. I have a cache at a grave marker that gives me the cold pricklies when I visit. Maybe one in ten logs on that cache indicate that the finders had the same experience as myself. Those are the ones I'm looking for, the others got out of it what they are looking for. We're all happy in our own way.

As for the noob that found your cache, they'll either come to enjoy that type of cache or settle out to the level of caching they do like. It's healthier to think that they had a mismatch for the experience they were seeking than to take it as a reflection upon yourself.

As for attributes, I can genuinely say I have looked at them on a cache page only a handful of times in thousands. It's not a part of the way I plan for caches, finding previous logs and cache descriptions more accurate for the hard ones.

I also fall into the category of hardly ever reading a cache page in advance, most likely reading it on the GPSr on the walk to the cache, or sitting at the computer logging it. Again, not a negative reflection on the cache owner or their page, just one of the things I only have so much time for. I'd rather hang out with my family.

Keep placing the caches that please you and the good logs will find you.

actually I take it back bigjim might have found the way in just it wasn't as big as he could handle. mmmm I'll have to go back and reread his log
I got scratched up a little bit, but not real bad. I walked in from the west, after finding #2, then worked my way north to the cache. Kind of followed the deer trails

There are three kinds of people in this world ... the wee, the not-so-wee, and the frickin huge.
