Caching in Texas Cemeteries, again

That one-sided article about geocaching in Texas cemeteries has sparked a lively discussion over in the Groundspeak forums. Seems like the author of the article has heard us and there’s going to be a follow-up story with some input from local geocachers soon.

A couple of other interesting tidbits I picked up from the forum discussion – apparently the Texas historical society encourages scavenger hunts and other similar activities within cemeteries in order to promote education and awareness, and Texas has an open cemetery law that essentially makes all cemeteries public property.

  1. Very interesting stuff. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. Yeah, this one has really taken a neat turn. I’m looking forward to the follow-up story. A cacher in the forum mentioned that he had been interviewed for it.

    This is another one of those situations where a word like “treasure” is needlessly inflammatory. Sadly, that particular word is even used on the Geocaching.com homepage. Maybe I should harass them until they change it. 🙂
