Pretty Face Posted December 16, 2010 Share Posted December 16, 2010 (edited) First let me say that I am new to this activity and would just like some clarification. I recently went on a cache hunt and was directed to an area that contained an Electrical box and also a large green cable box. This was a site that was going to have a structure built but the construction did not occur. The cable box had been "accessed" and the cover was not in the best of shape. As the cover was already off, I did look inside and noticed it had no cables in it. At this point, it seemed almost possible that it could have been the cache but after reading the log, (I did not find the cache) this appears to not be the case. I read through the guidelines for hiding a cache and it clearly states, "Will the location placement cause unnecessary concern? Please use common sense when choosing a location for your cache. Do not design your cache such that it might be confused with something more dangerous." One of the blog entries said the coordinates put them right in between the two boxes. That is where I ended up as well. Having found a couple of hides in round cable boxes and the like, it is easy to understand why this green cable box has been "looked into". I have never had to use a tool to open a cache storage container, usually the top just slips off. Is there a rule of thumb that containers will not require a tool to open them? If not, I would suggest this for discussion as it might have kept this green cable box doors from being pried off and damaged. Again I am new and looking for some good guidelines.
