What are the coordinates to receive the pie? Sorry couldn't resist. My ADHD and mentality of always veering off topic just couldn't hold back.

I observed something today and took a picture. This is how WE look doing lamp post skirt caches. This guy was actually a repairman.......I hope! He had several wires out maybe he was wiring a bomb????

Lamp posts in retail parking lots, even parking lots of big box stores, are not public property. They are private property and therefore permission should be required. Getting permission is not going to eliminate the issue, but it will greatly minimize it.

I assume that the reviewers do not ask about permission for a skirt lifter in a retail parking lot. I have never hidden one, so I do not really know. I find it ironic that when I hid my travel bug hotel next to my office in an undeveloped wooded lot I was questioned about permission, but the reviewers don't even skip a beat for a LPC.

I do not think that posting the contact information will do anything to help prevent issues with these types of caches. Personally if someone asked for permission to hide a cache and then told me that my name and number would be on the cache page for the whole world to see I would tell them to hide their cache somewhere else.

The short version of my long winded story is that permission should be required but posting the contact information will just create a new set of issues.
I am an amazed cacher!

following the lead of Good Dog and others who have archived these skirt lifters seems to be the best way to combat the legal issues - although i will miss picking up these quickies at the end of a busy caching day, or on a cold, blustery day....sniffle, sniffle :(

Don't worry, I am confident they ALL won't disappear. Some are actually placed in decent areas.

I just hope those guys (if more than one) aren't going and stealing the caches. That would be a real problem. This other one can easily be ignored instead of raising the blood pressure of our membership.

I suspect that would take more effort than they want to exert. (I hope)

In any case mine are all "Premium Member" caches at this point.

We have a meeting in 2 weeks and that was going to be discussed. I however, will take my stand on "we can't do anything because we have no right to". They are placed within the guidelines of groundspeak. We don't make the rules, they do. All I can suggest to everyone is PASS THEM UP and leave a note.

By now anyone that is a NWOGEO member already knows about placing caches that may create negative attention to geocaching and hopefully will not place more. It is the ones that DO NOT come here that we have to try to reach out to somehow.

The SC is here for NWOGEO and not Groundspeak.
