+roziecakes Posted August 11, 2010 Share Posted August 11, 2010 I wanted to share a story that I'm pretty pleased about. I recently placed an earthcache in a park in Central Oregon. When I first contacted the land manager he did not have a good opinion of caching in general, told me it was littering, etc. He also told me he wanted to pull all the caches in the park... one of which had been out since 2001!! But, he was willing to chat with me about it... Well, today I went and had a great meeting with him, and I tell you what, it pays to be friendly, ask permission and to educate land managers about caching. When I left he was thrilled about the earthcache, and in fact, encouraged me to place another one in another park that he manages, *and* the caches that are currently in the park get to stay! Yay! He also says that he is okay with caches being placed as long as people just call and ask permission. So it goes to show... don't be afraid to ask. It all worked out 100% better than I thought it would. Now I'm just waiting for that earthcache to finish getting published Quote Link to comment
