Looks like we picked the wrong week to hide one in a lamppost :(

i advocate Stealth 101 classes...figure i owe it to the cache owner to honor the integrity of the camo/hide...

currently in negotiations with GrizzFlyer to get one of his hard hats and clipboards... :wink:

til then, i do the camera/pix taking stance, the phone call pose, or just the plain old putting on my lipstick posture... 8)

'cept when dead-on caught, nothing beats the truth...

In light of all the new cachers out there, I'm bumping this forum. I know some of them are not registered members of this site, but still, just a reminder! :D

Attempted one yesterday at a residence in a subdivision in BG. The coords put it right up by a corner of the house, near a window. I just felt real weird, like a peeping tom. I said the heck with it and took off. Somebody with a kid or two in tow might not look suspicious, but a solo male looks like a prevert standing in somebodies side yard near a bedroom window.

Looks like another one bites the dust. How many of these will there be before some gov regulation stops geocaching? Hung above a major train track after the terror alerts that have mentioned possibly targeting trains. Someone did not use there head here...

I am wondering how the reviewer let a cache that was obviously so close to train tracks get published anyways!?

It is a shame that things like this keep happening. Eventually stories like this will kill geocaching.

Uh Oh! These cachers had at least a Dollar Stores worth of fun.
