Nobody ever said that you had to be intelligent to enjoy the game of Geocaching. It's a shame that some people cannot follow the very simple guidelines that are listed on the Geocaching website.
The guidelines for hiding a cache clearly state that one should not place a cache near schools, bridges, airports, government buildings, or any other areas that might be prime terrorist targets. If you worked at a government building, and saw two men placing an olive drab painted container in the bushes, what would you do?
The guidelines also clearly state that when using surplus ammo cans, one must paint over the military markings on the can. That's just plain common sense; but it's lost on some people.
Which of the below pictured ammo cans do you think would attract the most unwanted attention?
There continues to be stories in the media of bomb squads blowing up suspicious packages because Geocachers cannot read basic guidelines, or simply choose to ignore them.
