RE: [GPSstash] Re: Found geocache box in apartment


Interesting. It's hard to say how it got to Colorado. I don't think that
putting potentially dangerous materials inside will help anyone. It can be
said with a high degree of certainty that it was not placed by a Chinese
national but probably an American or possibly someone from Europe. We'll
help you find someone in your area who can put it to good use. Thank you for
telling us about it.



Seth!

We're in Fort Collins, Colorado. The cache box was found in an apartment at
Brookview apartments. It is an ammo box with www.geocaching.com and don't
remove written on the outside. Well, if it is from China, I'll be sure to
fill it with cadmium, arsenic and lead and send it right back to them! I'd
really like to get it to someone in our area, someone that does geocachine.
