Gasp! I live in Columbia, Illinois. It’s under 10,000 population and the police are very suspicious of people they don’t know. If they saw a string of people looking in a place where they don’t belong, they will stop and ask them. I try to make a point of letting them know where the caches are so the cachers aren’t stopped and questioned.A couple of weeks ago, I was hunting a cache out in the rural areas of Monroe County. I was hunting a cache that was along a guard rail in the middle of nowhere. A gentleman on a 4 wheeler stopped and asked me what I was doing. Since I wasn’t doing anything illegal, I explained Geocaching to him and what I was looking for. I found out that he owned the property just across the ditch from where the guardrail was and knew most everyone along the road. I didn’t belong there and he wanted to make sure I wasn’t doing something wrong. He said the police had found a mobile “Meth” lab not too far from where I was looking. He also explained that people had been ‘dumping’ trash all along the area for months now and he ended up having to clean it up. Once I explained what I was doing, and that the caches wouldn’t be going across the ditch and messing stuff up, he was fine with it. He just wanted to know.It never hurts to have permission and to make sure that the proper people know what’s going on. In this world of suspicious actions, having permission is better than getting forgiveness.Steve
