After tallying all the answers, we found that nearly 2/3s of cachers, or 63% have adopted at least one cache. So here’s what we heard:

  • Bailey shared: I haven't but I’d like too.
  • Dell has tried. He shared: I've offered to adopt a few caches near my home that appear to be orphaned, but none of the COs have responded.
  • Jo shared: Yes, a few when a friend moved out of the area.
  • Chuck shared: Yep. I adopted the first cache I ever found.
  • Brent shared: I probably have adopted 30 caches , from co's who were moving out of the area , didn't have time to maintain any longer, and in exchange for giving up some trail caches to make way for a new series to come out
  • I’ve adopted a few caches –mostly good oldies from 2001 and 2002. And technically through my company profile, I adopted all the caches in the Filmed in Spokane GeoTour. Having them all under one account makes it easier for our GeoTour team to manage them all.
