10 Years Cache: First Israel LPC Traditional Cache

This cache has been archived.

amnonymous: I can't maintain it and anyway, it's not an interesting cache today. It was part of a series that is no longer active and LPC that was something special in Israel when it was hidden, is too common today.
Free the area to a new and better cache that this lovely place needs.

Geocache Description:

Lamp Post Cache is one of the most popular and most hated hide in the USA. It is time that we will have one for us to hate.

This cache was hidden as part of the Geocaching 10 years celebrations in Israel.
This cache is also part of the 10 Years series, ending with a puzzle cache. Visit that cache to learn about the area.

From cacheopedia: "The Lampost Cache (LPC) is a (typically micro size) cache that is hidden under the decorative skirt at the base of a lampost. These caches are often found in the parking lots of large retail businesses (e.g., Wal*Mart).
LPCs have become somewhat controversial. Some geocachers consider LPCs to be too simple, too easy, and/or too unoriginal. Other geocachers are generally happy to have any secretly-hidden thing to find using their GPS, no matter how 'unoriginal' such a hide may seem to someone else."

Lampposts in Israel typically don't have such a skirt, but here you have one. LPC also known for bad safety issue. There are lampposts with electric contacts under the skirt. For your safety, it is important to be sure that there is no exposed electricity under the lamp. The owner of this cache checked it, but always trust only yourself. If you go 2 lampposts to the north, there is one that you can easily look below. You can see that the skirt is only decorative and there is no electric wires below. All the electric wires are closed inside that central pipe that goes to the ground and nothing is exposed.
