Proposed New Geocaching Rule

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

New Geocaching Rule...

 

All mosquitos, chiggers, ticks, wasps, dangerous vegetation & trees, etc must stay at least 10 feet away from any geocache and/or geocachers, but may still feel free to show some love to any geocachers who steal travel bugs, muggles, and/or those who destroy geocaches.

 

All in favor, say Aye! B)

Include wasps in your "etc", and we've got a deal.

I propose a small amendment - that the mosquitoes and such be required to go munch on the jerks! :D

Could we add stinging nettles to the list? They are totally alive and intelligent as they turn around and still sting you when you try to move them away from their non-stinging side.

That's nothing, we have the Giant Stinging Tree (Dendrocnide excelsa) to contend with.

 

Quote

The hairs of the tree exist on all aerial parts, and can cause a severe reaction when in contact with human skin, so it is a hazard to livestock, travelers and campers. Even so, the tree is an important member of the ecosystems of eastern Australian forests. The sting is considered more severe than Dendrocnide photinophylla (shining-leaved stinging tree), but not as severe as Dendrocnide moroides (gympie stinger).

 

Minor stings can last for an hour or two. However, severe stinging can last for months. First aid for the sting is to apply wax hair-removal strips and then yank them off to remove the hairs.[2]Dendrocnide stings have been known to kill dogs and horses that have brushed against them.

 

The Gympie variety, found in Queensland, is commonly known as the suicide plant...

 

Quote

For two or three days the pain was almost unbearable; I couldn’t work or sleep, then it was pretty bad pain for another fortnight or so. The stinging persisted for two years and recurred every time I had a cold shower. ... There's nothing to rival it; it's ten times worse than anything else.

Trees?  And you guys probably thought the Chechens were just a pain in the neck for the Russians.  Oh, wait...

Here's one we've learned to avoid in the Yucatan when visiting:

We haven't had occasion to find out whether the Chaca works as an 'antidote', and that's just fine with me.  Have seen the blisters that the Chechen can cause.

If we're including trees n stuff with skeeters, chiggers, ticks, and wasps, how about tripping into some Hogweed ?   :)

Yes, but everything in Australia tries to kill you, right? The only real option here seems to be to ban caching in AUS altogether.
