    Default Responsible Caching

    Here is a good article about responsible caching and makes a good starter for all the newbies as well.

    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Writers need to get their stories straight before they publish articles like this...part of the following statement is absolutely untrue...

    It starts with a cursory check performed by representatives from www.geocaching.com prior to posting coordinates. Caches have to be on public land, and there is an effort to keep them away from more dangerous areas such as bridges or railroad tracks.
    Some of the best caches that I have found (and placed!) are on private land where permission has been obtained.

    As you imply - the author is a writer, not a geocacher! LOL!

    I would assume this was a bad way of stating that caches need to be placed on land available to the public. Getting permission to place a cache on private property makes it available to the caching public at minimal. On the other side, there are public areas with potions within which are off limits to the public.

    I find myself catching incorrectly used phrases often, like recently I bought something online and the receipt said "Open boxes are not returnable and subject to a 25% restocking fee". I'm going to pay them 25% for them not to take it back????
    DNFTT! DNFTT! DNFTT!

    "The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it..."

    I know we're pretty uncomfortable going to caches that say "placed with landowners permission. They like to watch cachers come and go".

    I remember one cache in the Jonesport area - you literally had to make your way into the backyard of a house in a residential area...

    Default Jonesboro Cache

    If you are talking about the "Appletree Cache," I went to it and met the lady who maintains it and owns the propertyl She has a really interesting yard. It's definitly planned for people to enjoy.
