High Risk Caches in General geocaching topics Posted July 11, 2011 That was the Missus, so now that I've got the full scoop, I should put my 2 cents in here too. To answer the original question, risk is risk, regardless of location or situation. So yes, I think climbing a tree is the same as putting yourself at any risk. If I am heading to a cache, and I see a cliff or other hazard that I feel uncomfortable passing, I turn around. It's just a smiley, I'll live without it. Now as for the neighborhood in question, I never felt threatened or in danger. Did I know that I was entering a part of the city that could be low income? Yep. Did I also realize that it seemed to be a mainly Hispanic area? Of course. Have I went after caches in different parts of the same city that made me feel much more uncomfortable? Absolutely! If I see liquor stores, and pawn shops make up the majority of the businesses , and crack dealers are smacking hookers into traffic, I'm probably not even going to tap the brakes for the P&G in front of the adult book store, let alone let my daughter wander around in syringes and used condoms trying to find it. Now as for the matter of adults getting caught trespassing, when you knew you were trespassing, lying about it and blaming it on another adult...well, it's preposterous. But then to actually drag the entire geocaching sport through the mud, by trying to get yourselves out of trouble? That's not very christianlike, or moral.
