Subject: [gpsstash] Interview with a Park Ranger

If you could anonymously ask a park ranger a question regarding
geocaching, what would you ask?
I'm writing an article on geocaching and will be interviewing local
authorities. I'd like to have your questions answered too. I will be
focusing on issues of impact, maintenance, and "overcaching", but I
don't want to miss an opportunity to ask other questions that would
be of interest to this forum. In exchange for your Qs, I will post
the completed article here.
Please reply,
Doug Adomatis

First, I can understand a ranger's concerns on this issue, at least in principle. He or she doesn't care for the idea of
a park being "littered" with metal or plastic geocaches that might open up, scattering papers, etc., around the
area or be abandoned altogether.

That said, I think that we should be working hard to convince park personnel that geocaches will be "friendly" and unintrusive and I think that we should all agree not to bury our geocaches regardless of the location.
I'm not a government land manager, but the thought of people wandering around with shovels, digging like gophers, looking for geocaches makes me cringe.

Good luck with your project,
