Saw this attached to a cache description:

Disclaimer: You are under no obligation to hunt this cache. You do so at your own risk. Like any outdoor sport/activity, it carries the risk of unforeseen hazards. Use your best judgment with the environment and conditions. As conditions and cache locations may vary, it is the responsibility of the searcher to be familiar with the conditions in the area to be searched, to adequately prepare for those conditions, and to conduct oneself safely and responsibly and remain within his or her personal abilities and limitations. Children should be well supervised. Individual Geostash and GPS cache sponsors assume no liability for events, which may occur, related directly or indirectly to your searching for a stash.

Never seen this on a MN cache.

I've used various disclaimers over the years especially on my paddling event listings. It is unfortunate that it has come to this.
