+OXCACHER Posted December 29, 2006 Share Posted December 29, 2006 (edited) I do see some, and I don't know the correct term, "groups" that look interesting. There are a lot of nonsense waymarks in my area. There is one that I absolutley do not agree with. We had an issue with an SC rep from the lower part of our state draft a bill that would put an end to geocaching. This all started from a geocacher posting an image of himself laying next to a grave with his arms crossed. This was a serious issue that almost came to pass. Luckily there was a group in place to defend geocaching and explain the true nature of the sport to their rep's and this bill died before it got to the house. Details can be found here http://www.noh3777.org/. There is a waymark of a grave in this reps back yard http://www.Waymarking.com/wm/details.aspx?...81.0571&t=5 here are the logging requirements; A respectful photograph of the grave marker, headstone, or general area of the grave, which includes either you or your GPSr. Logs which include photographs representing any form of disrespectful behavior will be subject to deletion. One lapse of judgement on a waymarkers behalf and we will be right back where we started trying to defend geocaching. What happens if one state actually bans geocaching? How will it effect others states? Is Waymarking and the loose guidelines for listing just about anything worth it? At least when they were virtuals there was some integrity. I truly hope Waymarking and its nonsense doesn't cause harm to geocaching. Edited December 29, 2006 by TalesFromTheSurface Quote Link to comment
