Dangerous cache contents

Recommended Posts

I could not open a topic on this the other day and so just made a note on another thread.

Just to make sure it is read by as many people as possible I am giving it it's own thread:-


Out caching the other day with my aged father, The Hornet, we came across a cache that was a smallish cylindrical, tupperware like, container.


On opening the said cache we were presented with the pointed end of a VERY sharp pencil.


I shudder to think what might have happened should a small child have opened the container and stuffed it's hand inside looking for the "treasure".


Could I ask all cachers to be aware of the possible dangers of such seemingly innocuous, articles when placing them in caches.

I once ripped both me arms off opening a tupperware container, poked me eye out whilst writing up 'log, tore an ear off on a bramble replacing t'said box at the top of a well, which 'a then proceeeded to fall down, brekking both legs on hitting 'bottom and starving to death before 'a was rescued. icon_eek.gif


By heck though, us UK cachers were happy in them days. icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif


(With apologies to whichever Pythons wrote the Four Yorkshiremen sketch, assuming it was them. And to L.I.S. for making fun of what is a serious thread.) (...but el10t made me do it icon_wink.gif)
