Buried cache?

Recommended Posts

I have a cache container, part of which is disguised as litter. My plan is to bury the bottom half in rocks, with the *litter* sticking out to be found. If Im not able to find a natural looking setting of rocks or sticks, I was thinking I could dig a small hole for the bottom part. So it would be part way buried with the top half looking as though its laying on the ground. Would this be kosher? Or is it considered a buried cache? My container is really not much different than a fake sprinkler head where part of it is under ground.

Litter as a cache?? Sounds like something we as geocachers should not be putting out but rather picking it up.

 

...and no digging for placing a cache is allowed.

 

Perhaps digging was the wrong word to use. Part of the cache is pressed into the ground to hold it in place, as in a fake sprinkler head. Since a portion of it is under ground, I wasn't sure if that was considered buried.

Call it what you will. If you "dig" then it's digging.

If you press, then it's pressing.

If you "bury" then it's burying.

 

I'm sure there is a pattern there. Splitting hairs on the definition of a word is not going to get your argument.

If you have already made up your mind and just want someone to tell you it's OK, I will tell you it's OK for.... um..... Ten dollars.

I have one cache attached to the bottom of a split log. I put it in an existing indent in the ground. I cleaned out the indent so the container would allow the log to sit flush on the ground. Some may say I dug but I say I removed debris from an existing hole.

 

Look for a rock which when moved might have an existing hole. Maybe a half buried log. There are many hidden holes, you just have to look.

Don't you hate it when there's dirt/debris filling a completely acceptable hole?

42at42- That is exactly the case scenario Im talking about. Thanks for the pic! Nice cache. Maybe I'll attach something more natural to the area to the lid. It was a bought cache (christmas gift) and the lid looks like litter to me, would be easy to transform though. I'll put some more creative thought into that.

 

Just trying to be proactive and follow the rules. Sorry others take that the wrong way. The suggestion to run it by the reviewer was a great one, I hadn't thought of that.

It sure does make it inconvenient. :rolleyes:

I'm just being silly. Don't take my comments too seriously.

Since I don't live too far from you, thanks for the spoiler pic. :rolleyes:

 

Speaking of which, I found a cache in Southern Ontario that was a phony discarded Tim Horton's coffee cup, with the cache attached to it. I actually thought it was very well done, and therefore I would never diss all caches disguised as garbage (as the cache in the original post is). But I'm generally not very keen on them.

You just have to figure out which cache. :) I have another idea coming in the spring. Have you tried my Locked Up Multi yet?
