Ohio has a very strict "catch and release" Geocaching program so don't plan on taking ANY of those caches home with you! :o

The caching laws in Ohio can be very confusing. In most parts of the state there is no daily limit but I seem to remember something in the law about Canadian billiard players but I don't recall the specific language at the moment.

Surely you mean "cache and release", right?

 

 

Sorry for the awful pun, it's early...

Lessee, I think it's 3400

 

Phew! It sounds like I'll be alright then.

Understood. I won't use any hooks with more than 3 barbs.

I think it pertains only to those whom are playing professionally. Being a disgraced player, I can exploit a loophole in the law.

Of course. The container should never be considered a trade item as this is considered bad form.

 

It sounds like my caching should work out fine. B)

;)

Since the local caching groups get 10% of the assessed fines for anyone caching without a license, what would be the reason to fill any out-of-state visitor in on this small detail?

As for the expense of the license, you live in Ohio and never pay any park permit fees, so you can easily afford the cost of the geocaching license. For us living in other states, did you really think I enjoyed caching at night without a flashlight?

 

And don't even ask me about the attitude of the local magistrate, when he had to be pulled from Sunday morning church services, to fine me for no license. I thought for a while that he wasn't even going to let me post bail! Never on Sunday for me!

My wife is often referred to as a "Double-bagger." Would she be allowed double the limit or only half the limit?

I believe this only applies to Magellan users. Those equipped with Garmin are exempt due to causing less damage finding cache containers. The inherent higher accuracy of these receivers ensures a much faster find. ;)

I gather with the stipulation that cachers do not use any trade items of a non-christian nature, or while caching behave in a manner not in keeping with recent theologically acceptable norms. Cachers must not make any reference to difficult caches being hard "work", and breaking a sweat is particularly discouraged.

Although something I wouldn't normally admit to in a public forum I don't think that she would be considered any different. However, male caching partners can increase their bag-limit by 33.3% to offset the personal sacrifice.

Actually, if you exchange Jewish items you are allowed to cache freely on Sunday.

This opens up yet more ambiguity in the laws. I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask my Rabbi Krustopfsky for his input - if I can ever get his attention...

I think some out of staters can attest that if you do get the GeoFine, don't claim that you were Smelt Fishing. That's a touch worse, I hear.

A. unauthorized smelt fishing

B. unauthorized geocaching

C. unauthorized flamingo impersonating

D. chasing light sticks after dark

 

Which activity merits a larger fine ?

There's been an addendum to the caching laws for Ohio. This pertains to vehicles used while caching. It reads...

- bicycles purpose built for trick-riding or those modified with front and rear wheel foot pegs for such purpose, unless rider is under 12 years of age.

- golf carts with more than 7 flowers painted thereon. Note: No flowers shall appear on the wheels under any circumstance.

- wheelchairs equipped with electric motors closely approximating torque & horsepower specification of recent Gen Motors V8 engines

- canoes with camouflage paint or those equipped with oversized paddles

- skateboards or scooters not equipped for off-road use

- US Postal delivery vehicles
