    Default cemetary caches

    I noticed that there are quite a few caches in or around cemetarys (sp? ies?) Anyhoo--does everyone ask permission to place a cache in or around a cemetary? Or is it considered public property? Who does one ask permission? Thanks.

    I don't think you need to ask permission but it seems to be recommended that you put the caches just outside the cemetary so people aren't tromping over graves. And then state in the write-up that they are OUTSIDE. You have to ask the BRLT for permission to place a cache on their property. There's a cache at Ovens Mouth east side but I don't think there are any on the west side of the preserve, so that might be a good place. Caches have to be only a tenth of a mile apart, as the crow flies, but you probably want more space than that between them. And Kickercane Island, if you can fine a muggle-free spot! Guardrails are good, as long as they aren't too close to private property. One in Kingfield had to be archived because people were running over some ladies yard looking for a guardrail cache..

    Does this mean there will be lots of caches to find when I'm in BBH 9/3 to 9/5?

    Haha! I hope that there will be at least 3 more caches for you. I placed one at Knickercane already, I'm waiting to hear about Barrett's Park. There's a cemetary near the golf course that's a very pretty spot, and just today I thought about Oven's Mouth west. I also have permission from BRLT to put on at Zak Preserve, we are just waiting for them to give me the ammo box. (they were very busy this past week with the Boatbuilder's Festival) So you should have plenty to do on your visit!

    I see you have two published already, good work! Don't forget the beauty of a magnetic cache, either key case or nanno (although I find getting the log out of a nanno a bit too challenging). You might scout around the pier at Cape Newagen, or down by the shore at Little River too. If you can find something metal, those caches will stick and the views are great. In the BBH Region you just need to stay far, far, away from all those rich people with the "Don't even think about looking at our house" signs.

    If you are looking for a cache in a cemetery, just remember the law so I don't have to come visit you

    Enters or remains in a cemetery or burial ground at any time between 1/2 hour after sunset and
    1/2 hour before sunrise the following day, unless that person enters or remains during hours in which
    visitors are permitted to enter or remain by municipal ordinance or, in the case of a privately owned and

    operated cemetery, by posting. Violation of this paragraph is a Class E crime.

    So in other words, if you catch us, we just say we came in during normal hours?

    Just more proof rules/laws are overwritten to the point where they can be misinterpreted. Why can't they just say "Stay away after dark or prepare to be shot"?

    Oh you guys are too funny!! ...and right; try reading your town's Shoreland Zoning Ordinance! haha My job can be a hoot when I sit back and look from afar!

    Sorry to get off topic, so here's a sentence about cemetary caches: Do a search here for topics with the word cemetary; we've had many, many threads devoted to them. There's even a poll thread! Hiram and I love cemetary caches, and I think the only caches I'd have a problem with are ones hidden right at a tomb stone, tempting cachers to disturb the grave, but we've done come cool ones where the cache was at a memorial in the cemetary or in a stump, so banning them from within the cemetary would catch some caches that really aren't harming anything.

    I agree with Hollora about always trying to make contact with a steward of any place if a landowner is not obvious.

    I'll admit that a lot of cachers will never ask permission to place a cache anywhere. But most experienced cachers usually consult a Ouija board or conduct a seance before placing caches in cemeteries.
