Matches In Caches in General geocaching topics Posted March 8, 2004 I thought they were listed in the guidelines as well and just checked them as well as the page for hiding your first cache. Neither say matches nor lighters for all that matters. If someone can point it out where either one of these are listed as prohibited items, please do. I do think neither should be in caches and listed as well as prohibited items. Any word from TPTB on this?
