Tip of the Day 8/5:The Geocacher’s Creed

Back in the early days of geocaching,a group of passionate trailblazers got together online to address growing concerns that the game could be banned in some areas because of abuses by a few people. They hashed out a set of voluntary principles for the community.

The seven principles stated below may look simple,but they were the product of months of debate and fine-tuning. They were created by consolidating existing information and behavior “into a concise format that serves both to guide geocachers and to instill a sense of trust in landowners and land managers.”The creed reads:

When placing or seeking geocaches,I will:

  • Not endanger myself or others
  • Observe all laws and rules of the area
  • Respect property rights and seek permission where appropriate
  • Avoid causing disruptions or public alarm
  • Minimize my and others’impact on the environment
  • Be considerate of others
  • Protect the integrity of the game pieces

    This would mean so much more IF one of the cachers who likes to say he had a hand in it didn’t hide caches two feet from an extremely busy highway.
