Tip of the Day 9/8:Don’t lie to cops!

If/when a police officer approaches you while you’re geocaching,don’t lie to him or her about what you’re doing!

Most veteran cachers have at one time or another been stopped when geocaching. Let’s face it —it’s a suspicious-looking activity. You’re hunting in the bushes or around buildings,lifting things,peering into tight places. Then there’s the cache itself —if it doesn’t have an official Geocaching.com sticker on it,it could look like anything to the uninitiated. Police are trained to expect the worst and be happy when the worst doesn’t happen. So let them know what you’re doing WITHOUT FAIL.

Keep in mind that geocaching is legal,you’re on public property (or private property with the landowner’s permission),and that police want to understand. Most of them these days already know about geocaching,but there are several still who don’t. It’s always a good idea to have a Geocaching.com info pamphlet handy to show them in case you’re too nervous to come up with the right words “under the gun.”(Sorry,couldn’t resist!)
