GCPC EPISODE 467

GCPC MAILBAG: Viewer Feedback:

Hello Geocaching Podcasters
I heard remarks about geocaching in cemeteries on your shows, recall a story about a Pokemon-go ban in a cemetery on the basis that playing that game in a cemetery is disrespectful. This raises the question, is it disrespectful to geocache in a cemetery? I think the answer depends on who one asks, and what is being done or hidden, such as

* a cache placed on the fence in surrounding a cemetery, or just outside the cemetery.

* a cache placed in the grounds of cemetery, but in an area away from any grave stones.

* a cache placed near the grave marker.

* a mystery, virtual or multi-stage cache that requires finder to read information from the graves, and find a physical container away from the cemetery.

Thank you

Thanks to StevenW54 for the show suggestion:

Stevenw54’s areas to discuss:

* a cache placed on the fence in surrounding a cemetery, or just outside the cemetery.

* a cache placed in the grounds of cemetery, but in an area away from any grave stones.

* a cache placed near the grave marker.

* a mystery, virtual or multi-stage cache that requires finder to read information from the graves, and find a physical container away from the cemetery.

Question for the hosts:

Are there other sensitive areas that should be avoided or not?

It’s okay for Pokemon but not geocaching or visa versa? Why?

Tennesee it’s Illegal for making any game in a cemetery. May not be completely true.
US Federal cemeteries have rules against game playing in cemeteries.
South Carolina went through a rather lengthy battle with the state lawmakers to the point where geocaching itself was targeted and nearly made illegal. No cemetery hides without permission.
