Re: [gpsstash] And some more.... Sierra Club messages
I think we must remember and/or realize, from what I have been figuring from the messages I get, theres one or two guys on their mailing list, that are vehemently opposed to geocaching.. And I think the list is only an east-coast chapter's list... The fact that there are pro-geocaching people on their members-only list, seems to me to suggest that its not that big of a deal, and an "official" position from the Sierra Club is unlikely...
Like I have said before, lets not get all worked up just yet ;)
The people (sierra club or otherwise) that oppose geocaching on an "environmental" basis are the type of people that think that modern human beings are not a part of "nature"...
