Placing caches on state lines

If I place a cache on a state line, which state do I claim for submission for publication? 'Cause right now I'm just in the state of confusion... :P

 

It's an easy solution.

 

Stand on the state line in question and spin around as fast as you can with your eyes closed. Whichever side you fall down on is the side you list it under.

If you are still unsure, repeat this process 9 times and pick whichever side you fall down on 5 times.

 

Hope that helps

You will be even more confused when cache migration happens.

 

One cacher will replace the cache in one state, then the next cacher will put it in the other state.. :P

Tennessee has more letters.

 

More of those letters are vowels.

 

Tennessee wins.

Vowels cost $250 each. Tennessee loses. Kentucky is cheaper

 

A really good and logical answer was actually suggested without the OP knowing it.

Would more people be likely to visit from one state or the other? If more would be coming from Kentucky, make it Tennessee so they can get a grab from a state other than their home state. If more will come from Tennessee then make it Kentucky.

The cache coordinates would specify which state the cache is actually in.

Except I don' t believe that the cache coordinates specify the state automatically. I found a cache once the was just over the border into Nevada from California in South Lake Tahoe. Because there are many casinos on the Nevada side but not on the California side the property line boundry is quite visible. In this case, it was about 5' on the Nevada side but it was published as California (using the select list). A couple of people asked the CO (including me...it's the only cache I've found in Nevada). I never got a response but now that caches shows up as Nevada.

Yes. It is the cache owner who lists the jurisdiction. Right or wrong. I saw one pop up about five miles north of me, listed as being in Pennsylvania. Location was changed to New Jersey. Found another that was about sixty feet into the wrong state. But I ain't telling on that one, because someone I know has it as the only cache found in that state...

I found one on a state line. In the logs, some people claimed it in one state and others in the other. I just went with the state the coords showed up in and I assume that's what the owner did because they had it in the same state. More than likely, if you stand on the marked state line and take coords, you'll find they fall into one of the two states.

Aahhh...an answer from above, as it were. I like it...this makes the most sense to me. Thanks! :laughing:

 

Thanks to all those who gave their two cents worth...although I think a few folks still owe me change... :)

I have one of those. I just picked one of the states for the listing.

 

It is interesting to read the logs from visitors. Many will say something like "My first find in Nebraska" - the very next log will read "Finally got a Wyoming Cache (barely)."

 

I'm amused at the slight discrepencies of various units.

We didn't plan on it. :)

 

There is a cache in north central Oregon (darned state is big enough to have zones) GC19PF8, Dufur Threshing Bee. This was erroringly placed in Washington and the coords shifted south but still came up as a Washington cache. I'm noticing this morning that it now lists itself as being in Oregon, but for a while it wasn't.

 

(edit spelling as usual)
