Anti-geocaching measures


Since I've been paying attention (that is, since I've been geocaching), I have never seen a lamp skirt so securely fastened to the base as this one, found in the parking lot of Gordon Parks High School in Saint Paul. Notice the extra concrete around the bottom edge and the soldering around the top edge. In fact, I can't remember many lamp skirts that are fastened to their bases at all.

This might not be an anti-geocaching measure; it may be an anti-micro measure perpetrated by a geocacher!

It might also be someone whom isn't keen enough to realize that sometime in the future they may want to service parts within that area. Arguably though if you have it sealed and never want to take it down, it won't really need much in the way of maintenance.

I applaud this persons proactivity and energy efficiency (read, lazyiness). Now, only moments before SJ publishes my first LPC!

The world's first terrain 4 LPC, no doubt.

You've got it all wrong, my friend. The entire concrete base lifts up to reveal a very large ammo box underneath it.

You should have seen me lugging that thing in there!!

You're so sneaky! I never suspected!

Say, anonymous, how's your shin? :)

Ha! A 4-terrain LPC. That would rule.
