Just wanted to see what everyone thought about the episode of Law and Order with reference to geocaching in it.  I liked the story even thou they showed a no no about burying a treasure and the cache container was a little boring.  I feel that they would have never had found the hoody and gun if I hid it.  The weather report that cut in sucked.

At first, I said "It can't be buried" but that's a no-no for new caches only. There are many existing buried caches including Scooby Lunch.



Since you don't have to decode clues to get the name of the cache, it was strange how they found it to be the Footbridge cache. They should have used the track on her GPS to find out where she had been.



Of course, there is no way that a good geocacher could have hid that gun. That poor hide should have been enough to prove that she was innocent.

For those of us here in New York State, it was interesting to see that they used Harriman State Park.  Mind you, they said there were 30 caches in that park, when in reality, there are probably closer to 230 caches in that park!  Cache density is actually becoming a problem there.  It's a very large (and beautiful) park though.  If you want to see for yourself, search for GCJJEK.  That's one of the caches there.

We enjoyed the show with our boys. We thought maybe the container was just hidden in a hole and covered with a lot of loose dirt and leaves. So not "technically" buried for benefit of the doubt. Of course a cache like that in a natural hole would be awfully wet right now in Manitoba with the rain we've had.



We of course knew that no self-respecting geocacher would ever hide the weapon that stupidly near another cache. Inevitably it would be found accidentally. The producers should have done a few caches first. One hidden in a stump or tree would've been good.  A clever twist would have been to have the murderer attach a TB tag to the gun (after wiping it clean and filling the end with lead) and placing it in a TB hotel for quick movement throughout the countryside. The amount of fingerprints would be an insurmountable challenge for DNA testing.



Truly (if I had a criminal mind) I would make a little box of concrete and cement the gun into it and then toss it into the deepest lake I could find. ? Or take the gun to an autowrecking plant and toss it into an old car. Why aren't these criminals more clever.  



But of course they were framing her so...In a better script real cachers would have found it the gun/hoody "accidentally" after the killers created a cache near this "smoking gun" site. The killers would have stolen a pseudonym from a different local cacher after hacking into their account. The cops would begin investigating various avid cachers and finding the connection to this former girlfriend (a cacher as well) leap to the wrongful conclusion that she was the murderess. After a forum complaint from the cacher whose pseudonym was stolen (while away on military duty in Iraq), police realize it is a frame-up and begin looking in the right direction. 



Anyway how hard is burning a hoody?



 



They should have consulted in an open caching forum as to script ideas. Some real stories out there are way better than the one they wrote but hey it promotes the sport and at least the cacher was innocent like we all are - right?

I am definitely not going to mess with you.  You got it all figured out.
