It makes no sense to me why they are archiving instead of disabling all the caches. Those that don't get the permit could be archived, instead of un-archiving those that do get the permit.

Does this mean that if your cache is "un-archived" it will have the same GC code and placement date..... That would be excellent for Turkey Run Stash.

I know I don't have the longest streak
........ but do I have the longest slump?

When I emailed them about Turkey Run Stash and expressed my opinion about it being archived I got this in return today.
Me:
I read your new rules about geocaching and was concerned about the Oldest unarchived cache in the state of Indiana. It would be a shame if it got archived since old caches are part of some of the challenges for geocachers. The one I am referring to is GCC6 Turkey run stash.Are there any plans to keep this one active?

Them: Greetings Mr. Speiser!

Thank you for your patience as we obtained the answers to your questions. You are correct that at this time, we are updating our current geocaching policy. Our staff is aware of this cache, and if will do what we can under the new policy to make sure it remains active. Shortly there will be news release on the policy, and ways to obtain permits to keep the cache like this and others in place.

If we can be of further assistance, please let us know.

Sincerely,
Indiana State Parks and Reservoirs


If you aren't FTF, you're last to find.

It looks like the local level understands the issue better than the corporate level.
Thanks Mr. Speiser!

Question seems to be, is it worth all this effort?
