+9Key Posted October 29, 2007 Share Posted October 29, 2007 I had an incident this weekend where a cacher visit one of my new caches and got very upset that there was poison ivy near the first stage. They left this in their log: "you obviously have little concern for others when you place a cache that could be very dangerous for others". Frankly I thought this was rather a ridiculous statement as you always can walk away from a cache. No one is forcing you to walk through poison ivy, and in this case it could be avoided by approaching from a few yards to the north or from the west. Is it my responsibility as a cache owner to warn about every possible danger that a cacher might encounter? Isn't that covered in the disclaimer? If I hide a 5/5 and someone goes for it and they do not have the required skills to do the cache am I responsible if they get hurt? How much responsibility do I have as a cacher to walk away if conditions would hurt or make me uncomfortable, or if I am not prepared like the case in question? Quote Link to comment
