Zentreri Posted October 16, 2002 Share Posted October 16, 2002 (this is a sock puppet account sorry, I don't want to give the cache details away too much with my userid). I came across a great spot the other day that I had been eyeballing for a long time. I want to place a cache there but the area has a few cool features that may freak some individuals out. People who have a fear of heights, a fear of water, and fear of semi-small places. It does not require any special equiptment or level of fitness outside of what your typical adult geocacher is capable of. But my questions are: 1. How to convey to the cacher what is in store for them for safety reasons without ruining the surprise(I don't want someone to show up with a baby stroller or freak out anyone who is afraid of water or heights). 2. If you put a pile of disclaimers in the cache description might the cache run a risk of not being accepted by the geocaching.com staff? It is perfectly safe but my own paranoia about offending someone else's sense of what is "unsafe" might make it appear dangerous when in fact it is not. 3. Perhaps just jacking the difficulty up to 4 or 5 and say "leave the kids and dog at home, people with a fear of heights may want to avoid this cache" will do the trick. Sorry about the vagueness, I just don't want to give anything away. Comments? Quote Link to comment
