IamFennec Posted March 19, 2008 Share Posted March 19, 2008 We were out geocaching on public lands looking for a multi-cache near our home today called Goldielocks. We were at the first geocache site called papa bear when a forest ranger aproched us asking what we were doing thinking that we were dumping trash. I told him we were geocaching thinking that he would know what that was and would let be on our way. When he herd that we were geocaching he went off on us about how it is illegal and It litters the forest and all that and started talking about fines. When he was done talking he made me tell him where it was and so I did. He then told me to leave the area. At that point I got out of there as quick as I could because I didn't want him to not find it and make me get it for him. My fear is that if he found papa bear he will find the remaining caches related to goldielocks. We have never come across the situation before, I would have thought that the forest service was ok with geocaching being that you have to get permission to place a cache. Has anyone else come accros this situation before? Has anyone ever heard this ever happening or know for sure it this is true or not about geocaching being illegal? Quote Link to comment
