Suspicious of committing what crime?Does anyone here do any geocaching? I took it up about a month or so ago and very much enjoy it. Mostly do urban geocaching which CAN result in muggles calling the cops because they find geocachers behavior suspicious. I carry concealed usually, but once in a blue moon open carry. I have never been approached or questioned by an officer but a few of my friends have. One coworker was geocaching with a friend one evening around 8 pm and were hunting around near a stop sign and someone called the police on them. The officer pulled up, got out, and asked them what they were doing. They explained that they were geocaching and he actually helped them FIND the cache, and seemed very interested in geocaching. More and more cops are learning what geocaching is, some are indifferent, some view geocachers as a pain in the ass. A few have actually taken it up as a hobby as well. Then there are the stories of cops actually blowing up caches thinking they are potentially bombs. :-P One cache that was blown up was put back in place with a note of apology from the police tellling the cache owner they thought it was a bomb. And they left a toy badge inside as swag! :-D
I am wondering if carrying open or concealed would be better when geocaching, if my geocaching could be considered "suspicious" is that RAS to ask for ID? And if I am concealed carrying should I volunteer that I am carrying?
