    Popular past time can turn dangerous and illegal

    WACO-Geocaching as a hobby has been around for a few years, but it's just recently become a very popular past time. However, the treasure you find could not only put you in a dangerous situation, it could land you in behind bars.
    It's supposed to be fun. You log on to the web site, type in your zip code, log the coordinates onto your global positioning system and start your search. So what's the problem?

    I've always wanted to go geocaching.

    I'm not too concerned about some of the issues in the article. I'm sure illegal or dangerous "caches" are a rarity, and I like to think that I know better than to go wandering around private property looking for things.

    We were called called to the exit slip (translates as "off ramp") at one of our junctions due to a suspicious package.(We have had genuine i.e.d on our network in the past courtesy of the IRA)
    Some bright geocacher had placed their "cache" in an old ammunition box for mortar shells in the hedge next to the fence line.
    the sole advantage of power is that you can do more good.
