    No accusations may have been intended, but I still find that mildly offensive. I'm sorry you had such a negative experience with other cachers regardless of where they were from. (Why was it even necessary to note their nationality if your point was solely around the "rush and trample" approach?)

    If I were from Canada as Eebee is, I would have felt the same way.

    This still has little to do with permissions, but...

    While being from Canada has no bearing at all on their actions, it does tell us something. It tells us that there are cachers who can be irresponsible or ignorant even when they are away from home. In most situations people behave better when they are in an unfamiliar area, so I would hate to see how these folks might cache in their own neighborhood, regardless of what state or country it is in.

    This reminds me of recent news headlines, Hispanic woman calls in to police that a black man appears to be breaking into a home.

    The facts; she is hispanic and the male in question is black. It appeared to the hispanic woman that the man was forcing his way into a home. It had nothing to due with color, race, gender and or religion yet people will take something at face value and spin it to suit their own needs.

    Opalsn stated the facts in their post, not a racial slur, a stereotype or anything else. If I said I went to a car accident involving a canadian, I would be stating facts not making a comment about canadian drivers.

    I'm thinking people that take offense to hearing facts need to modify their thinking.

    It often helps to know someone's intentions, mode of operation, way of handling issues, ability to express themself clearly...or in a peaceful manner. QTIP
    I'm just nuts about geocaching!!

    I wonder how many caches would not have been placed and enjoyed by the masses if land owner permission had NOT been given or even tried to obtain?? !! I always try to get permission but sometimes I personally feel that places I have caches didn't need approval from anyone but the Publishers of our caches. (public) But I believe there would be a whole lot less caches in areas when land owner permission is "required" on our forms. I am still new at this and some of my thoughts and ideas have disturbed many. So, I guess i will just go with the flow and do what everyone else does. What ever that may be !... I would hate to think a neat new cache area and location that's really cool would have to be passed upon because we are not able to figure out or even find the land owner...I think the " NO TRESPASSING " signs say it all. No sign, fair game.

    So I blabbed my thought...

    Cache On !

    I guess the underlying thought for me would be...how would I like it if some stranger decided to bring many people from all around the world to my land and not even be considerate about my permisson, and having them tromph all over my moss, woods, or whatever.( It is at least a little comforting to hear about the injury suit laws that Dubord talked about on another thread. ) What might not look like anything particularly special to you might be to the landowner. We need to take a walk on the high side to keep this game respectable, don't you think? If its not a guardrail, someone probably needs to approve the placement I would think.

    Looking back over the past posts now, I notice that even guard rail caches(at the waterfront) are sometimes not welcomed.
