In some situations, a cache is no longer able to be maintained by the owner. In these cases, Geocaching.com, GPSgames.org and other listing sites, will transfer ownership of the cache listing to a geocacher that is willing to take on the responsibility of maintaining it. Every effort needs to be made to try and contact the owner before this happens.

In a situation where the cache owner does not respond in an adequate amount of time (within 4 weeks, but your mileage may vary), contact your local cache reviewer with:

  • The waypoint name for the cache (e.g., GCXXXX or GEXXXX).
  • Any history you have in your attempts to contact the owner.
  • Any history of the reason for adoption.
