They could be taking them intending to check it out but don't, moving them without logging or just trashing them as inappropriate to be found in a competitors cache listing. I don't know but this attempt seems to be a failure. Without a GC dog tag this just fails in bringing in new OCNA cachers.
Maybe I'm just different. I remember when I first started caching I immediately started searching the web for alternative cache listing sites to learn more. I found Navicache but it was already pretty much abandoned and the nearest was a good ways off but doable except the cross listing on GC was already archived as lost. Terracaching required the sponsorship by existing members which I didn't do for some time. Once I did I found there were very few nearby which I attempted but failed to find unless it was a virtual. If there had been more or the existing listings were actually still there I would have done more.
I had two moving caches listed here that I reconsidered and archived after taking one to an event and nobody would even log it as discovered. My caches cost about $12 to make plus the cost of the TB that was attached to them, so even the idea of using a GC dog tag did not work for me, and I'm not promoting OCNA anymore either. Especially by using geocaching.com's site to reach other geocachers, that's just wrong. When I joined the OpenCaching networks back in 2010 they looked like fun, and Garmin's OpenCaching soon turned ugly and unusable. Now, OpenCaching North America has become the site to list anything that can not be published on the official geocaching site because or their guidelines, such as proximity issues. I'd hate to see a cache listing that would be rejected here.
I looked at NaviCache and TerraCache, which both have abandoned listings in the area. I guess I'm a little different because I archive my listings before I leave a site that I'm no longer interested. I do that as respect to my fellow geocachers. I do have a few vacation caches left here, but they are virtuals, which are also my listed Waymarks, and one web cam in a nearby veterans Park.
But as for my two traveling geocaches that I listed here, both are archived and their missions changed not to reflect OCNA in any way and the one dropped in a TB Hotel at the Lincoln Museum near Cumberland Gap was picked up and was last logged in a cache near Tybee Island, GA. It's good to see it moving.
