+Renegade Knight Posted March 25, 2002 Share Posted March 25, 2002 I've had concerns about Geocachers having too much of an impact on the land as we go about our hobby. Then this weekend I went to an archery shoot. It was raining. As a result mud trails were everywhere. Mud was running down draws caused by the impact of hundress of people walking from target to target. Trails were dug and dug wider as people tried to stay out of the mud. Cars that didn't need to to off the main dirt/mud road to get out, drove on the non trail parts. All in all the place was trashed. This is a once a year event, on private land, and obviousy with permission since 'no trespassing' signs were posted. But after seeing that, I don't feel so bad about a few cachers finding a cache in the woods. Should we try to minimize our impact? Yes. Should we lose sleep over it? No. After all a group of tree huggers walking a picket against timber harvesting will have more impact on a location than Geocachers ever would. Quote Link to comment
