    I really dislike finding things that could be a danger to kids. I've removed live ammunition from caches. Other things I remove are things that could be considered objectionable. Cigarettes and feminine hygiene products are a couple things we've actually found in a cache and I removed. I mean, really?!?! What possessed who ever put the Tampax in a cache?

    Rock's, leaves, twigs, dead batteries, rubber bands. What is wrong with you people?

    I don't mind finding candy and stuff like that.

    I hear this "dangerous" to kids a lot. How many "kids" are out hunting for caches alone? Do you take your kids to the store with you? Poisons like cleaning products, pool chemicals, moth balls, antifreeze are everywhere. Tools and things of the like are dangerous screwdrivers, icepicks, knives, and saws. I'm sure your parents taught you to be careful with pencils because you could poke your eye out or get lead poisoning. Come on, the branches on the trees are as dangerous as a pocket knife.

    Lets teach the kids to be careful, because if we remove all obstacles and challenges they will be sorely lacking when they get into the world alone. Kids need to be taught so when they escape from the clutches of the parents they will know that touching the hot stuff will hurt.

    Rant done.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    Leave a gun and ammo where a child can get it.

    I hate finding burst bubbles in the spring - they are yuckie. The leaves, twigs and other assorted fauna would be better left out too.

    I hate when the cache smells and I can't wash it off.

    Business cards and religious pamphlets are my least favorite things. Would it be in bad form if I removed such things?
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    Ditto. Seems to be quite a few of those in the immediate area.
    Everyone has the right to be an idiot at times. Just don't abuse the privilege.
