Author: ShadowAce Date: To: listserv Subject: [Az-Geocaching] Geocaching and State Trust Land
While trying to organize a CITO on State Trust Land, we were informed that
Geocaching is NOT an authorized recreation on State Trust Land.
I will be sending out as an email to some friends as well as archiving all
my caches on state land within the next two weeks.
I was directed to re-read my application for permit:
The Permittee shall not cause any refuse or allow any other foreign objects
to be deposited on State Trust Land.
Geocaching is not allowed on State Trust Land. Anyone can call the State
Environmental Resources & Trespass office @ 602 542-2119 and ask to speak
with Jody Latimer, Bill Webster or Ken Lamb if they have questions.
I was told by Ken that in 2007 when he took over the web page there was no
reference to Geocaching and never will be because it is covered in the
application as leaving behind forien objects.
He (Ken) also tells me they have tried to contact Groundspeak many times but
have not received a response.
So. I am archiving my caches with a note and it will go from there, however
Groundspeak decides to act on it.
I will be picking up my containers as I can and will remove any found logs
after the date of this posting.
