    I was banned from the site a few years ago due to transferring bills in a way that they didn't agree with. Whatever. I do still notice them but that's about it, just cash for me.

    lol, is there a wrong way to pass along money?? why did they ban caches from their website? imo, their purpose is to track how the money moves right? and if it wasnt a wheres george bill in the cache then it'd probably be another one... so whats up with that???

    It looks like we've come full circle to when I started this craziness with the reference to cash in caches and possible lawyer traps. Maybe the Where's George guy doesn't like lawyers as much as you all do? So this discrimination against geocachers sounds like a potential class action suit that we should file. If somebody wants to pay me a $3.50 retainer, I'll make the sob's take our dollar bills!! How dare they! I'm outraged! Let's get 'em: Win, Win, One...we mean bussinessss!
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    The point of Where's George is to track how a bill travels in regular commerce - using cache for a purchase. If you buy $100 in $1 bills, mark them, enter them at Where's George, and then return them to the bank unspent, that's not considered "regular commerce".

    For example, the "top user" on Where's George has entered over 827,000 bills since 2002. Figuring 6 years with 365 days per year, that means he's marked and entered over 377 bills each and every day for 6 years? I doubt it. And how could a person spend $827,000 in CASH in 6 years ($578,000 of it in $1 bills!)?

    OK, Dubord...here's my offer. I can think of a number of caches that can be considered "lawyer traps" across Maine. I think it's in your best interest to always have a paramedic close by in case of a sudden emergency. Let's negotiate.... Oh, also, in reference to an earlier entry where someone questioned making change for those Where's George bills.....wouldn't the change have to be in Where's George quarters???

    Not all Where's George bills are $1s......there are $20s and more. Now, I can think of a few caches where I would have liked to have had a paramedic with me.........
