Thread: Hiram and WhereRwe's Beer Chat Thread

    Default Just Wrong...

    I saw this in the closed thread as well. I'd like to think that someone is not actually placing alcohol in the caches, regardless of whether they know their adult buddies will be there within minutes of it being published. There are numerous situations where someone else might happen to get there first or if a muggle found it, it might cause issues where a bad light would be placed on caching. Coupons and giftcards are a different story. I know i've found questionable items like lighters in caches and usually take them out as I cache with my kids and don't want them having access to that kind of stuff. While the McToys maybe be poor trading items, I'll take my kids having access to those anyday over fire and booze.

    I agree, leaving beer in caches makes cachers as whole look bad if it ends up in the wrong hands or is otherwise reported. I wonder legally - if a minor retrieved the beer if the person who placed it could be charged for supplying alcohol to a minor?

    I've only seen a beer in one cache, Iceman, which is a tougher cache to get to and hidden well enough that it would not be found unintentionally, but it is still not a good idea. One of the cachers in our party took it in his own hands to destroy the evidence - and felt it was deserved since our guide who shall not be mentioned (pjpreb has heard that story one too many times) got us lost.

    I have found several knives, matches and other items on gc.com's list of items not allowed in caches.

    I think beer in caches makes other cachers look better. A few in a cache and I might be taking a crack at you.

    Love finding interesting lighters in caches especially if they work. Always need a lighter for my cigar in the rain.

    I know, I know, rules.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    After this and the fact that beer goggles were a door prize the the breakfast event, I'm having second thoughts on going way out in the woods with Mike on the search for Halfmile...BRDAD, can you go out ahead of time and make sure there's no beer in the final?

    But it must have improved over the years if the Alstrom brothers gave it a "B+" and commented that it was "very good".

    Efes! Lordy I had forgotten about that. I believe that it could kill. I'm pretty sure we dropped it on the Republican Guard
