+TeamGuisinger Posted October 5, 2006 Share Posted October 5, 2006 Let me start by saying we live is a very small rural area where the legal system isn't always there to protect and serve. It's so bad that out of town attorneys call it "Hazzard County" and refuse to take on cases in our county. You must be a member of the right church to get "justice" around here. (which btw, we are not so we try to keep a low profile) Two nights ago some caching friends of ours found one of our hides and it had a business card from the sheriff's dept with a note asking that a gamer contact them. Being from Hazzard Co we were a little frightened to call. I was imagining a whole list of bogus charges that were going to be filed against us the minute we admitted to ownership. But since Mr. G placed the cache so I was gonna let him have the tickets, fines, jail time etc. So I call and here's what happened: Two hunters were out scoping possible hunting locations. They happened to see the cache which is in a big metal container. It was very well hidden but I don't want to give too much detail or I'll give it away. They called the game warden who called the Sheriff. Now I've heard several stories about bomb squads being called, I've NEVER heard this.... they thought we were cooking crystal meth in a big metal container in the middle of the woods! LMAO! They didn't call the fire dept or the bomb squad, they just opened it right up...gotta love the rednecks. In the end we weren't in trouble, he just wanted to know who in the area was playing the game. I explained to him that caches are sometimes mistaken for bombs and he says he'll call me to see if the next bomb/meth lab is a cache before they blow it up. Just a funny story I wanted to share..... (p.s. yes the container is very clearly marked as a geo cache, but that doesn't mean anything to someone who has never heard of it) Quote Link to comment
