+Vivaxia Posted January 3, 2010 Share Posted January 3, 2010 I've been caching with my younger brother for a little over a week now... I know it's probably not long enough to form any strong opinions but I wanted to post my experience anyway. Every search up until this point was great even if we didn't find anything we had fun trying to look and be stealthy about it. We've done mostly urban stuff around businesses and a couple residential ones and have had no problems. Anyway.. we went out around noon today and took our mom and a friend of my brothers with us. We found the first cache in a moderately busy parking lot and moved on to the next one that was in a residential area. When we got to where the cache was hidden we parked in a legal area that wasn't even in front of someones home and set to searching in a little decorative side yard. After looking for about a minute this older man started walking towards us from down the street and yelled, "What are you looking for?" My mother answered, "Oh it's kind of a treasure hunt someone in the neighborhood hid for us!" So he yells back, "There ain't no treasures here!" and releases his dog off the leash for whatever reason (it wasn't a very threatening animal) but we got back into our car and left. I know it could have been much worse but it's kind of turned me off from residential caches. I don't want people calling the cops thinking I'm stealing something. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Quote Link to comment
