Geocaches areNever buried, there are Guidelines Geocache Owners are required to meet, each Geocache goes through a Review process before being published on the Listing Site.
Geocaching is approved of by the Forestry Commission, National Trust [a number of their sites, have their own Geocaches] The RSPB, Natural Resources Wales, Natural England to name just a few of the major Landowners.
Because of Geocaching, I have visited Historic Sites, I would never have known existed, been for Walks to fantastic places.
I've even learned to conquer my fears of tight spaces and Heights.
Geocaching has taken me on to a Tidal Island, accessible only at low tide, by climbing up through a Sea Cave [and trust me for someone with a major fear of heights that alone was a achievement]. I've also been underground in Slate Mines [and not the sanitised Show Mines]. One of which involved 6 hours Underground and had me confronting my fear of tight spaces, and fear of heights, due to having to traverse down then back up a extremely steep incline.
Geocaching has given me fantastic friends, and improved confidence over Public Speaking. I've also learnt a lot about nature and history.
I'm also a member of a Committee, who will be bringing around 1,500+ Geocachers from not only all parts of the UK, but the world. To North Wales August 2016, this alone is a journey of Discovery for the 10 person Committee.
I recognise that style of writing dc ;)
