I'm not even going to dwell on the fact that it was near train tracks, probably closer than 150 ft....
I'm pretty sure you can see in the pictures why I was turned off by this cache. The place was a trashy homeless camp under a nice big tree. There was glass ,trash, nasty carpet, a shoe... the list could go on...
YES the tree was cool, BUT...If I wanted so badly to place a cache by/in it I would have cleaned the area up for future cachers to come. Perhaps it didn't look like this when the cache was placed, but after reading the logs... if this were my cache, I'd temporarily disable it and go clean... or archive it all together.
I know, I know, I know. CITO. And I do, but this place was overwhelming. I'm not going to put that trash in my car after cleaning it up. No freaking way. Besides. I don't think It would all fit in my car. There was more that what was in the picture. Trust me.
"The cache site hardly illustrates the positive aspects of our state. I hope the CO reconsiders its placement. "
"Second try, still no luck, will keep it on my list. Did collect a huge bag of CITO, could hardly get it into my truck, but you could hardly tell the difference. What a shame, this old tree deserves better."
"Looks as if this may be a layover point for illegal immigrants."
"UGH, lots of trash around here. Could use a CITO. Didn't have enough room in the vehicle to haul this trash out. Don't let your kid out around here. Found a needle at bottom of the tree. Be careful. We looked a long time and even went where cache was but didn't go far enough."
