Now we all know that geocaching is very much a family oriented activity and just down below and right out of the geocacahing.com rules page here is what should not be placed in a geocache:
- What should not be placed in a cache?
- People of all ages hide and seek caches, so think carefully before placing an item into a cache. Explosives, ammunition, knives, drugs and alcohol should not be placed in a cache. Respect the local laws.
Food items are always a bad idea. Animals have better noses than humans, and in some cases caches have been chewed through and destroyed because of food items in a cache.
- Please do not put food in a cache.
"Mom, who else", she snickers.
I of course still picture my daughter at the permanent age of six where daddy can fix everything and is just shy of a god. Needless to say I would suggest leaving the "protection" to other gaming places and leave the swag to more family type items - hokay?
Am I being over protective? I think not but what are your thoughts?
