State Trust Land. I think we are trying too hard to follow the letter and
not the intent. How many Trust Land Permits are issued to people just for
the purpose of Geocaching? I for one WILL NOT be removing my caches from
State Trust Land, don't think it matters in the big picture, if they have
known about it for 4 years they have not addressed it. I hope others feel
the same. This is a local issue and doesn't involve Groundspeak, we can
police our own and settle any matters. Sometimes it is best to leave well
enough alone.
