+Renegade Knight Posted October 23, 2003 Share Posted October 23, 2003 In the OC forums the subject came up of a geocachers creed. Something like a code of honor that geocachers could follow. If they subscribed to its tenants they could put a logo on their cache page, profile, or even signature line (on sites that still allow one). This seemed like a good idea so I thought I’d bounce it here in the GC forums for the wolves to chew on. My thoughts on it are that such a creed would be separate from any geocache listing site and might be slightly different in other countries. Lastly while a site could give the thumbs up to a creed it’s the goecaching community who should be the driving force behind it. Tread Lightly for off-road clubs comes to mind. Here is my stab at a quasi humorous one, based on real world observations. It’s not what you want at all, but it gets the idea across. 1) Bushwack in. 2) Take the trail out. 3) It’s better to beg forgiveness than ask permission. 4) Move, Move, Move the cache, gently down the way. 5) Leave the container open while you sign the logbook, in the rain. 6) Be sure to trade the cache down. The next guy may be poorer than you and will appreciate your hard work in making it easier for him to trade evenly. 7) Don’t leave religious tracts. AOL CD’s are much better and more plentiful. 8) Always make the cache easier to find than you found it. This helps muggles discover the hobby. 9) Mark the path in with surveyors tape. You are a pathfinder nobody else can use that handy pointer on their GPS. 10) Don’t be prepared, it’s much more of an adventure that way. 11) Use the code for a lame cache. “TNLNSL” or “Clamdip at midnight, in the rain”. 12) If you have to chose between placing and maintaining, place. 13) Blah, blah, yada, yada.
