You got that one just in time. Congrats, by the way...

Only 88 virts left in the state.

Guess the owner doesn't want to keep a little piece of Geocaching history alive.

oh, well.....

I would adopt (and I bet anyone else would too) any virtuals that would be going away...

...maybe send the owner a message and see if you can adopt them instead of him keeping them archived.

For some reason Groundspeak doesn't allow people to adopt virtual caches. They can't even be allowed to come back once they have been archived.

The weird thing is the owner emailed me and said "virtuals can't be adopted or transferred, sorry." I never asked for them. I went to see what virtual caches he owned and I seen he was archiving all of his caches.

I clicked the links just to see where these were. Sittin and thinkin was the only virtual I have done. It was at a campground I went to a lot as a child. Now I will just have to sit and think about my fond memories of long ago, and of when I did the cache... Sad well, maybe someone local can place new caches there.

That actually might've been for me, I contacted the owner after I saw your post...didn't know they didn't allow them to be adopted.

He emailed me before I posted anything in the forums. I actually found out what happened. The owner hasn't been online in 2 years. Neonride93 noticed this when he was logging the one we did Saturday and asked the owner if he could adopt them. Well that must have awakened the owner and he just archived all his caches.

Yea, I claim responsibility for these Sad When I was logging them I noticed he hadn't logged in since 2008. So I did offer to adopt them, i had no idea geocaching.com wouldn't allow it and I didn't know he would take suck drastic measure. This sucks. I love Virts! A quick glance at some of the other virts we did on our run shows they are still owned by active users so that's a plus! Maybe someday Groundspeak will bring them back.

Not to hijack this thread but does any one use waymarking.com on a consistent basis?? I have tried but I have no interest in discovering every McDonald's in the country, so I havnt givin it much of a chance.

Don't be so hard on yourself. The owner archived them not you!

I know but they were both easy to get virtual, and if i didn't e-mail him he would have just deleted the logs like normal... O well your right Not going to cry about it or anything just putting the word out leave the virtual owners alone...if you dont bother them they wont do anything stupid or drastic

Wow..That's too bad. Not merely about the virtuals, but I've met Randy Paske a couple of times... Great guy. He'd been geocaching well before most of us had
even heard of it. I hope he's all right.
