Comments on: Do you DNF? Geocaching Can be Addictive Mon, 25 May 2015 14:52:06 +0000 hourly 1 By: Ryan (all4familycaching) Tue, 26 Jul 2011 15:29:26 +0000 We have no shame in recording a DNF. We totally agree with you on this subject. We have a few caches that get the odd DNF and we don’t worry about them unless there are atleast 2 in a row. Due to the nature of those hides. I wish that cachers would always post their DNF’s that way it informs the CO and potential seekers that something might be wrong with this cache.

But I do know that some cachers and ourselves, sometimes, don’t log a DNF if we only have a few minutes to look for a cache. As we didn’t have enough time to “give the hide a go” because we are heading to an appointment and thought “this will be a quick find”. And can’t find it because we are in a “rushed” state of mind.

DNF’s only makes us geocachers human. You’re not going to find them all on your first try. That would just take the fun and adventure out of geocaching.

Those who don’t are doing future seekers, the cache owner and the sport a disservice.
