    Default RE: Geo-cache or geo-trash

    A co-worker found this story in Subaru's Driven magazine.

    "Courage is not the absence of fear, but the realization that there is something more important than fear."

    "Death is only one of many ways to die."

    Sounds like that is just one more ill informed nature geek that doesnt know anything but tries real hard to sound smart.

    They just sound like another enviro-freak who thinks that you are going to destroy the earth if you even step off a trail. Of course, someone who wanders around the wilderness looking for snakes and amphibians probably has a distorted sense of reality anyway.

    The author said they are saddened to see "unspoiled habitat" ruined by people. How did she/he get to that unspoiled habitat, on a helicopter that never set down??? Every footprint you leave adds up, not just from the "other people"

    Well, I am one owner/driver of a 2000 Subaru Outback that is proud and happy to search for "geo-junk" !!! Their loss for sure!

    well for one... why the hellicopter does he own an outback if he doesnt think anyone should be "out in the boonies"? does he give himself special permission? second... this is coming from a ecofriendly cacher... i've seen geocaching do more good in a lot of places than bad.. for example my shawmut fishing hole, used to be pretty littered, people kept telling me of their CITO while looking for the cache, i go back to check on it, and with the exception of the large items like appliances, the place was barely recognizable from when the cache was first placed. And also when it comes to placing caches, i dont know of a whole of caches that promote stomping around off the trail (more than 15 or 20ft) and also most cachers i know are the outdoors type of people that are constantly trying to do good for mother nature (now there are exceptions) it sounds to me like this guy just likes to hear himself talk.
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    Hey Hiram,

    dave... im not one to read fine print after work... so i used the term "he" loosely... so if you'll excuse me i need to go put some gas in the jeep so i can go 4wheeling in downtown waterville to look for some caches...

    Angry We've hit on a theme here.....

    I say we turn the writer of that commentary, into a geocache. Then there'd definitely be a search for geo-junk. LOL! Maybe we can land the helicopter on her while we're attempting to not step on the "unspoiled" habitat. Somehow I think her feet would curl up, like under the house in the Wizard of Oz.

    Man, her sister was GREAT in that role..... "I'll get you, my pretty, and your little CACHE, too!"

    No offense to witches out there.....

    I think most of us do our part to limit our impact on the environment, and as others have noted, I've seen areas improved by this sport. This person should definitely get a life, and stop the noise pollution her ranting and raving must cause to anyone in close proximity.
    To Cache or NOT to cache.....IS there a question?
