Grand Canyon Bug Cacher Traditional Geocache

This cache is temporarily unavailable.

AZRedrock: I've noticed that this cache has one or more issues which really do need to be addressed by the cache owner.

The guidelines state that periodic visits to check on a cache, as well as prompt attention to any logs that indicate there is a problem, are part of the cache owners responsibilities. Only an OWNER MAINTENANCE log will clear the NEEDS MAINTENANCE attribute. If you can't attend to the issue promptly, then you need to Disable it- I have Disabled it for you this time.

Please respond to this situation (or indicate your intention) within 30 days, so others know exactly what is happening with this cache.

You have lots of choices so pick the one that applies from this handy list:

  • Check on the cache, repair and/or replace the cache or do whatever else is needed, post an Owner Maintenance log indicating the cache has been checked and ENABLE your cache. Then sit back and wait for the praises.
  • If you really hope to get it fixed but there is some unusual reason why you can't do it soon, then at least post a Write Note log (within 15 days). Be sure to indicate when you expect to have it fixed so that everyone knows you are on top of it. For ongoing issues, please ensure you visit the page and post a note every 28 days so as to keep everyone up to speed.
  • If you don't plan on fixing it then you could consider passing it on to another geocacher by asking them to Adopt it or alternatively, you need to Archive it, so it is removed from searches and someone else can have the spot. Don't forget to remove any remnants of your previously enjoyed cache too.

You might wonder what happens if you don't pick one of those. Well, if nothing happens, then a few weeks from today, when I next look at the cache page, it is likely that I will, unfortunately, have to de-list (Archive) it on the basis that it has been abandoned.

Honestly, I'd rather you decide so please do something before then. Please don't send me an email unless you feel you must, but instead follow the information/advice posted above.

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Perfect to give Travel Bugs Some worldwide Exposure. WiFi nearby at the hotel. PLEASE LOG YOUR TRAVELBUG MOVEMENTS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Log when you pick them up and when you drop them here please. Due to long travel times of visitors trackables log may not be current.

This is a very easily accessed quick geocache. However, it is very well concealed due to previous thefts. If you're planning to come to the Grand Canyon, then this is a must stop cache for you and your travel bugs. Although this cache is a great lauching pad for some bugs to travel hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles on their next stop, it is also notorius for not having current inventory lists, due to like times between logging. Help keep travel bugs alive with prompt logging. Again, there is WIFI for your Geocache logging at the hotel visible from the parking lot. Thanks to the crows and ravens this area is usually in need of some cache in and trash out. FYI there is a WiFi spot at the Canyon Plaza Resort nearby.
