Power Trail to the Extreme

There’s an interesting discussion going on over at the Podcacher Forums about a new power trail in California that is closing in on 600 containers,each spaced 1/10 of a mile apart. The containers appear to be placed along a highway for easy finding.

The tone of the debate is that reviewers should never have approved these placements,since the obvious intention is to make it easy for people to run up their numbers in a short time. When you consider the preparation that goes into adventures like the 413-cache 24-hour record run from last fall,it seems a shame to devalue those kinds of achievements with a string that’s practically designed for record-breaking.

What do you think? Should reviewers allow power trails of this size to be placed or should there be limits?

    Who cares,this is a game and however you want to play it go ahead.I wouldn’t take this trail but then again I’m not looking for numbers but if I was I’d hit this trail hard.

    Someone in Denmark currently holds the record of 480 finds in one day in the Denmark\Sweden including taking a ferry.

    While I don’t really like these trails,they seem to draw me to them. We just got back from a 566 cache day. This year the allowance of these trails will change the game a bit. If it’s not your thing…. skip it.

    The only problem with this one was the impact it had on the desert. I was thinking about heading down there this fall but now I will plan something else.

    I just wonder what the CITO situation will be with the cache machine. How many cachers will in such a big hurry that they will just dump their trash. And speaking of dump,which caches will be the local latrine sites? Totally irresponsible from my personal perspective.
