No offense taken Joe. And I'm one that is against them in designated wilderness areas. I have pulled several of them that did not belong to me over the years. And there are a few down here in AZ that for some reasons are still injoe bartels wrote:I'm the one that said trash and meant it most specifically to wilderness.

I've always thought that the two best reasons to geocache are to get kids outside, hiking and interested, and also to help us non-techy types to learn something about our GPS units. However, there is a bit of truth to the "geotrashing" barb.SpiderLegs wrote:Don't do it so much now, but when my kids were younger I geocached with them quite a bit. I could not convince them to go outside for hiking or long walks with the dog, but throw a GPS unit in their hand and all of the sudden they were interested. If they had a GPS unit in their hand all of the sudden they did not complain about cold weather (lived in Idaho at the time) or hiking up and down trails for hours at a time.
