For that do a google search for: permission and groundspeak forums. What I want to know is: Does OC expect all caches on their database to have official permission from a land manager (park official, city official, etc.)? GC.com’s policy regarding permission is “By submitting a cache listing, you assure us that you have adequate permission to hide your cache in the selected location.” Whereas OC states “I have permission from the landowner or manager to hide my geocache”. This to me is a more limiting policy.

Even if it’s public land,d someone has to maintain it, and should know about the container.

Truth is I do not hide caches where permission is required i.e. parks that have geocaching permits or private property. Is it really expected that each cache owner must locate and communicate with the manager of public land?

P.S. I’d ask this in the opencaching forums but I’m one of unfortunate few who can’t login to the forums (I’ve contacted Garmin about the problem).

There are a few cachers that have uploaded many caches. This is giving the appearance of popularity. I placed a cache on day one and it has only been found by a friend. There was no FTF rush on this cache.
