+Monkey_Chops Posted December 1, 2010 Share Posted December 1, 2010 (edited) I'm still pretty new to this and am starting to think about places to hide caches. I only have 8 finds to my name, but please don't worry, I'm not going to be hiding anything for a while yet. After reading on these forums, it seems sensible to me to wait until I've found a good range of caches in different areas etc etc. What I am doing though is constantly looking around everywhere and thinking "That would be a great place to hide something", as I am sure everybody else does. (I may be new to this hobby, but I can already see how much fun it is and have enjoyed it a lot so far!) The reason for this post is that I was thinking about a friend of mine. He owns an ice cream hut on a beach and I initially thought it would be great to give him a decent sized tupperware box as a cache that could hold decent sized objects, like books and so on and I could guarantee that it wouldn't be affected by the weather, muggles or anything else. All the geocacher would have to do would be to ask him for it and he'd give it to them. Of course, I then looked at the guidelines and found that it said "Commercial caches will not be published on geocaching.com without prior approval from Groundspeak..........The geocache is presumed to be commercial if the finder is required to go inside a business, interact with employees, and/or purchase a product or service, or if the cache listing has overtones of advertising, marketing, or promotion." What does it mean by 'without prior approval'? Obviously if it is considered unacceptable as a cache, I won't do it. Although I assume that I can put a cache on his ice cream hut (like a nano or some other hidden container) provided I have his approval to do so. I just thought it would be a good and simple way of hiding a cache of a decent size in an urban setting. Edited December 1, 2010 by DomAndKitty Quote Link to comment
