Have you ever contemplated what would happen to our sport if there were no new caches? Ponder, if you will, the Cache Owner. Here is someone that freely invests his/her time and energy to create a delightful opportunity for complete strangers to discover.

Whether the cache is a pill container under a rock on the eastern plains, an elaborate multi or mystery cache in an urban setting, a themed cache with an applicable container, or something else entirely, where would we be, as the geocaching community. without the Cache Owner?

The next time you find a cache – be it a lampskirt, a five mile hike, or something in between, please remember to take the time to *thank* the owner in your log for placing and maintaining the cache. It only takes a minute and shows your appreciation for their effort and time and your understanding that without them, you’d have little to do.
