4 of 4 today and the one that ended our caching for the day.
Wow what an adventure - what started out as a normal day of caching turned into a finding something that made us debate calling the cops. When searching for our #3 of the day, hubby located some clothes and a bag among other stuff. As we were about to call the police, LeFleur showed up just as we were about to place the call and we questioned them about what to do if we found something on NCC property. Then they say to us "if your talking about the Rock Igloo up ahead - don’t worry about it we got that report already and we have been sent here to dismantle it! - it was placed there by GPS hunters, Geocaching or something."
"Geocaching you say? Well that is what we are here doing - would you mind if we went along with you to see this Geocache so we can take it home to give it back to its owners."
Along we went with them (we walked they drove) Amazing piece of work guys.
The minute one of the 3 workers said geez this guardian is scary - I knew right away it was a Gnome and it had to belong to either Tick and Nammie or to Zart. We packed up your little Gnome and the Ammo box spoke with the workers a bit and they felt so bad about having to tear down the structure. They decided to actually wait till tomorrow morning so that they can bring their cameras with them and take pictures of it. The workers told us we are not aloud to build any structures of any kind on NCC property because if the structure were to fall on a kid or something then the NCC would be held responsible so that is why they have to remove it. I actually think these LeFleur workers will begin geocaching because they were getting us to explain the whole deal to them and were making jokes about being able to cache and work at the same time - since their jobs are to clean and maintain the trails.
On the way back out the NCC CO showed up to check out the item that raised our suspicions that we found. So she stopped and questioned us for about 20 or 30 minutes. Told us again we could stash things on the trails and stuff BUT NO BUILDING ITEMS - she told us this when she noticed hubby was carrying the ammo-box.
We had to leave our personal info with them so that if this Item requires any further info from us they can reach us. And she asked if we were the people who owned the Rock structure - we explained no we were not but we would make sure to get the contents of the container back to its rightful owner. She thanked us because it would have been her job to track the owner down and return the container to them. She then took the initial things we located in the woods (clothes and bag etc), and we went on our way.
