I have a random question which i would like your views on. I wont be offended by any answers i get - i am genuinely curious as to your views.
I am a Geocacher. For anyone who doesnt know what this is, it basically is a treasure hunt with the use of GPS systems. There are over 1 million Geocache boxes around the world all logged onto a GPS system, which we go out and hunt for. They are usually some kind of waterproof box which contains a log (for you to log your details and date you found it) and sometimes some little gifts for kiddies (think xmas cracker type stuff). It’s all just good fun really. We do it to get us and the kids out and about and the kids get so excited to find them. It takes us on walks and adventures we would probably never have discovered without it. The boxes obviously have to be pretty well hidden so that a non-geocahing member of the public is unlikely to stumble across it.
So here is my question: do you consider the placing of these boxes littering? There is a UK environmental group who have started to hunt out the boxes and destroy them. I had never thought there would be such an issue, but it has made me wonder if im doing the right thing?
