And if it had been ABRC (Another Bloody Rivet Cache) no one would have known anything!

If you read the logs for the cache, it looks like the last finder (who was arrested) posted a 'TFTC' find log, and then later on just said 'Cache has been blown up, sorry about that!'. For all of us cachers in the know, it is pretty funny! I feel sorry for the owner though..........

Geo-Bomb Scare -- Absolutely Amazing

Post by pjmpjm » 07 July 11 10:36 pm

This BBC article took my breath away. I really hope our Australian situation [NEVER] reaches this level of fear. But it certainly bears considering.

Should you have included a never in that sentence somewhere? :roll:

No No No... you misunderstand Rich. Pjm wants a police state where you MUST CACHE. Not finding and taking care of a :gnome a week will be punishable by "controlled detonation" of the miscriant.

(This statement was made of my own free will and action... there is not a gnome with a big axe standing over me... or under me...)

(help!...)

Maybe I got caught up with the old slogan, 'Never say never.'

Anyhow, 'Never let anyone see you hiding a box in a public place' might be a good slogan too . . .

Yes. Such as, 'We have ways of making you geocache . . . "

Well maybe we just talk to the local police - if they know about geocaching and have a local contact, it could prevent calling the bomb-squad
