    FTA: "Check with local land managers for restrictions before placing or seeking a cache".

    Riiiiiiiight - Okay, everyone raise your hands that gets permission to look for a cache on public (or public-access) land... C'mon, don't hold back... Anyone? YOU! There in the back! Oh, muscle spasm? Sorry.

    Asking for permission before searching does seem a little beyond anyone's expectations. But I guess for one that could loosely mean paying attention to any newly posted restrictions at the site.

    And I do know a few cachers who have verified with a landowner before searching since the landowner was right at that location. But it is an unreal (and usually unneeded) expectation to expect them to do it on every hunt. Personally, I have never asked to hunt a cache, but I have only found 879 out of 303482 caches in the world, so it could still happen.

    I'm not worried about asking a landowner for permission to SEEK a cache on his property - I assume the cache owner has obtained permission to place a cache for anyone to access. But having cached in MANY states, I guarantee that many cachers do not feel a need to ask a landowner's permission before HIDING a cache - most "urban microcaches" fit this description.
