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?
