Good point, and even though the DNR has the power to order removal at any time, it would be nice if an owner were given a notice so they could reclaim their cache and move it elsewhere. Rather than say DNR is the owner, why not require the registering cache placer to remove the cache within 10 days of notice from the DNR. Then, when asked how it is different from other abandoned property, the answer is simply that the DNR is notified of its existence and placement through a registration policy, the property will be picked up within 10 days of a command to do so.

In effect, we are asking for an exception form the abandoned property rule. It is our willingness to register and maintain the property that makes it different from other property types.

Yes, I've seen many insurance companies settle when there is a question of liability. Many times, a settlement can be cheaper than protracted discovery and litigation. Like I said, if you are sued, you pay costs and attorney fees (or your insurance company does) at a minimum.

Even the use of disclaimers does not prevent the initiation of a law suit. Moreover, it seems less and less that common sense is applied to these law suits.

We accept that caching has some inherent risks. I could have had a heart attack chasing SB up the hill at MOGA last year. If I had one, my wife could have sued him because he yelled at me "Hope you have a Heart Attack". It wasn't the exertion of going up the hill, or the years of all that bad food. It was the sound of SBs voice yelling at me that caused it.

Just trying to keep it light guys.
