+Davequal Posted July 25, 2011 Share Posted July 25, 2011 This time I am asking before I do anything. How would you approach this situation ? Today I went to a good friends sons birthday party. He lives in an area that I had not cached in before. So for giggles I threw a few caches in my GPSr, did NO research on them, did not even look at them on the map. So things got a little slow and I turned on my unit and walked a way for a moment. When I got back to my GPSr I looked at it and low and behold, I was less than 500 ft from a cache. So I started to sniff it out. Turns out that it is on my buddy's property, which he bought about 10 years ago. It backs up to some local water shed property. The area has an old access "road" which neither the state nor he maintains in the winter or any time for that matter. The area is pretty remote. It seem that the CO has 88 caches in that area of the state and 2 of which are on my buddy's property. Now he has no issue at this point in time with them being there BUT one of them is in the area where he is going to build his son's home. He is unsure of when construction is going to begin. He has "turned away" one rude couple who drove up his driveway looking for a few in this series of caches. ( his property is CLEARLY marked " NO TRESPASSING" ) He had one other guy that he came across last fall, that was geocaching that was really nice and pleasant and he let him continue on his way. There are 55 logs on the one closest to his house and 66 on the other one on his property. So obviously most cachers are stealthy. Reading some of the logs for these caches the are in need of some TLC due to wet logs, going back towards the beginning of the year. Now that I have typed out a novel, on to my question. How would you approach the cache owner, about them being on private property? As I said my buddy has no issue for the time being but would really prefer that the were not there, especially the one closest to his house. Quote Link to comment
