I came across this post on the Groundspeak forums about virtual geocaches, and why new ones are not allowed. We've done a couple of virtuals, and plan to get a couple more tomorrow. They've usually been entertaining and somewhat educational.
Okay, the Mary Tyler Moore virtual? Not so much.
The argument against them is just how much WOW factor does a site need to qualify - and who gets to decide that?
I thought there might be an argument made for allowing them, but that's what waymarking.com is for. So I went over there for a visit, to see what cool virtuals were in our area.
I found some old homes and churches that are on the National Historic Register. Kinda cool.
Found an artesian well nearby. That's got WOW.
There was an old post office. Hmmmmm . . .
Found a storm warning siren on a pole? ? ?
A Target store.
Wait a minute. A Target store?
Oh, it's Target store #100. Still, I'm not that impressed. But I do need some deodorant and toothpaste.
. . . think I'll go score a virtual.
