+GerbilMafia Posted August 21, 2006 Share Posted August 21, 2006 I would like to hear from the geo-community regarding the above topic. Stealth camping is camping in such areas that people usually wouldn't or wouldn't be allowed to if permission was sought. Examples would be nature preserves, state parks, national parks, cemetaries, rail trails, etc. The theory is simple, blend in with nature, tread lightly, and leave no trace. If no one knows your there or knows you were there after you have gone and you had little to no impact of the environment, have you done anything wrong?? Geocaching and stealth camping go hand in hand. A stealth camper / geocacher could go on a muti day hiatus and enjoy both activities and truly have an adventure. Not to mention geocaching typically takes you to ideal areas such as those already mentioned. My question is this: Stealth camping is an adventure in it's self and can be even more so when geocaching is thrown into the mix. Would this activity be something cache owners would like to see in log entries on their cache pages or should we continue to be "stealth" and say nothing? There are many "rules" to this game that we all know are not followed. I know alot of people are going to say that you should never camp somewhere without permission but we all know that permission was not granted to hide every single geocache out there. What is the difference? In many cases geocaching has more of a negative impact than stealth camping with litter, geo-trails, etc. Just wondering how the majority feel about this topic.
