Would like feedback on this Cache Notification


RAD Dad

Recommended Posts

I have made up this cache notification. I am planning ot laminate it and place it on the OUTSIDE of all my caches once I begin placing them. What do you all think of it? It will be on a 5x8 laminated card.

 

 

CONGRATULATIONS!

YOU HAVE FOUND A GEOCACHE STASH!

 

What is a Geocache?

It is a game. Like a scavenger hunt played with GPSR’s

(Global Positioning Satellite Receivers)

 

What SHOULD I do now that I’ve Found it?

Well, feel free to join in the fun. Inside are little treasures. Feel free to take one, but please leave a treasure as well if you take one, so there will be treasure for everyone else who finds this. If you don’t wish to take a treasure, that’s fine, but please DO sign the guest book enclosed. Also enclosed is more information on Geocache. If you have Internet access please log your find at

www.geocaching.com Here you can also find out more about the sport of Geocaching.

 

This is NOT abandoned Property, it is periodically maintained by RAD Dad

PLEASE DO NOT DESTROY OR REMOVE THIS STASH.

IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS PLEASE CONTACT ME.

 

You can reach me by email at raddad@laimbrainz.net

Enclosed you should also find some “business” cards with information as to how to log this find on the web, please take one with you for your convenience. I hope you had fun finding this stash! If this was an accidental find, hopefully it will be the first in many more finds for you should you choose to join in the fun, and may I will get to find one of your stashes someday!

 

This stash was placed here by RAD Dad if you have any problems with the placement of this cache please contact me first before taking any action. If this is wrongly on private property, I will remove it at once if asked by property owner. I check my email frequently Monday through Friday, and will respond as quickly as I can. Geocaching is a sport that encourages responsible placement of caches, as well as good stewardship of the environment with programs such as “Cache in/Trash out”. “Cache in/Trash out” is a program in which players are encouraged to collect trash in the areas in which they are hunting for Geocaches. Please Join in the fun!

Yeah, it doesn't look right when I cut and paste to text, but formated it all fits on the 5x8 card, and has color as well as a geocache logo in the upper left corner. I used different font sizes so it doesn't look cluttered.

 

Thanks for the input.

I think this is a great idea, especially after the "I Hate I-5 XXV" cache was confiscated by the WA State Police Bomb Squad. I just placed My second cache a couple of days ago, and made sure that I put "Law Enforcement Contact 253-569-XXXX" (phone #) on the outside of the ammo can, just to be sure they call before they destroy it.

 

Lost? I'm not lost. At least I don't think I'm lost, well............OK, maybe just a little.

Overall, I think this is a good idea, and I think you've done a great job with it. I do think you might want to lose the word "stash" from your description, though. For some, this word conjures up images of illegal things, (i.e. a drug stash) so it might be best to stick with "cache" instead. This is a similar discussion to that which occurred early on in the game, by the way. It's the reason today that this is called "Geocaching" and no longer "GPS Stash Hunt".

 

Just my opinion.

I know what you mean, but property is considered "abandoned" after 24 hours. I doubt you'll be checking on it every day. icon_frown.gif

Don't have time to program and record your shows while geocaching? Get a TiVo!

I would only recommend to shorten it a bit. Frankly, I didn't even read the whole thing becasue it was so long. I understand that you want to include alot of information. It says that there is more info inside ... I'd put much of THIS with THAT info.
