After reading a post here about Geocaching I became interested in the sport and tried it last weekend. This is more or less treasure hunting with a GPS. There is a nice website at Geocaching.com with quite a bit of info as well as some forums. Browsing through the forums I ran across a poll asking if participants generally went armed. Sixty precent responded that they did. That was surprising. I had made the assumption that most of the people that did this were greenies.

How about starting a closed-group geo-cache within AR15.com? Maybe start an AR15 forum for it?

And 60% of the 60% just say that so people won't F with them.

Yeah, and 72.5% of all statistics are made up.

Maybe some of the items swapped/traded could be Mags, ammo etc. [:D]

Lets do it. I have a GPS and an Orlite mag that doesn't fit my AR very well. We can bury it.

this could be a good scheme for a nutcase serial killer who lives out in the boonies post co-ordinates to some "geocache" way out in the boonies wait for quarry to seek out the treasure kill mu ha ha

here's another one post cooridantes to treasures that end up being in bad places, like nuke power plants, area 51, missile silo sites, garbage dumps, out in the middle of nasty ass rotting bogs, etc ha ha ha

Sounds fun but the first MF'r that gives me a cord and it ends up in the middle of a gay nudists colony will get an ass chewing! Airtight bag with a notepad and an item, ie; beat up mag, worn out firing pin or such and the only rule is to sign you name(or handle) date it, and trade items (recording the new item in the log). Although and old fashion ambush as Red beard suggested sounds fun! CH

Red Beard, Read the geocaching.com rules a little better: No posting to military bases, private property unless with permission or public property that could possibly be interpreted to be terroist activity (i.e. nuke plants, courthouses, etc.). Pretty good sport if you have a GPS and want another excuse to go out in the woods. Merlin

Hmm - "ends up in the middle of a gay nudists colony will get an ass chewing!" Well I guess that will be a little different for the locals.

After reading many posts on Geocaching.com, I thought that most Geocachers were greenie leftists. However, after meeting lots of them in the great outdoors, they seem to be pretty normal folks. Most I meet are older than me. I'm 46. A very fun sport.

And none of them have bitched about the CZ-75 on my hip yet.

There are also rules as to what cannot be placed in a cache, specifically explosives, ammo, knives, drugs, alcohol and food. Food is on the list because most caches are placed in wilderness areas, and animals have a better sense of smell than we do. You don't want an animal running off with or destroying your cache. The other items are just common sense. Geocaching is a family sport. There are young children out there finding these caches so you don't want anything dangerous in there that could hurt them. And no, all geocachers are not "greenies". Why would you think you'd have to be a greenie to enjoy getting out in the woods? We've found some pretty good impromptu shooting ranges near some caches in the desert....and we go armed. As I said before, I highly recommend the sport for the pure fun of it. You get to see a lot of country that you wouldn't normally see. And the satisfaction of actually finding the cache is great, too.

Family sport? Uh Oh! I guess I really missed the boat on geo cache. I usually leave porn or cigars. On a similar note, I wish I could catch the guy that keeps taking a dump in the local ammo cans! He's got to be a sick puppy.

I wish I could carry here in the state forests of CT. I think if you have a handgun on you in a SF, its prima facae evidence of hunting and off to jail you go with the squirrelcops.
Link Posted: 6/17/2003 5:58:04 PM EDT
That is exactly why I buy a hunting license as soon as they are available. It avoids a lot of potential crap and besides something is always in season in KY. Bob

I'll geocach someone to "The Tender Trap" which is probably the most heinous excuse for a strip club in the world. Crack whores are in abundance! You'll definately walk away from that place with *ahem a little more than you went in with. Probably need a trip to the doc to clear it up too! Sorry Hoplite and Racer!
Link Posted: 6/17/2003 7:51:26 PM EDT
All the rules only apply to official Geocashing.com stash sites listed on their webpage, and are for people that follow rules. An unofficial AR-15 stash site might be fun.

i'm going to start a "hot chicks only" geocache program all target coordinates will be my crotch

Umm, just a suggestion, but you want to avoid those two phrases- at least in the same sentence.

That would be Waldo. He admitted to it in my other thread. I go armed. Never know if the Blair Witch is out there.

I'm an armed geocaching fool. Hell, I would take my rifle if I thought I could get away with it. The Pig.

what is to stop someone from jerking around legit geo-cachers by changing the clues in the box?

OHC, Wondering if anyone would catch that...Damm the luck! CH

Sicko. How about this: make a booby trap, then post it as a geocache on the internet?
Link Posted: 6/18/2003 8:06:51 AM EDT
Damn, there are a bunch of these things within 3 miles of me. I've got a GPS, too. Maybe I'll try it.
