Anybody care to tell this person that caches of any sort are illegal in the BWCAW?

The USFS is very good about allowing cachers to put caches in the SNF-all you have to do is follow their rules which are a little different than those of GC - but I think some people don't realize that the SNF is separate from the BW.

Slight clairification - Caches of any PHYSICAL sort are illegal in the BWCAW.

From the Arrow Superior National Forest Geocaching Policy:

"Only virtual caches are allowed in the BWCA Wilderness, and need not be registered."

I agree that the above-mentioned letterbox is illegal.

yup, that what I get.......Physical caches must not be placed in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, Research Natural Areas,

or National Natural Landmarks. Only virtual caches are allowed in these areas.

Rule # 6.

I always forget that virtuals are allowed in the BW, but are virtuals okd nowadays? Hmmm- the lakes aren't frozen- maybe I can get the bird dog to go out and waypoint something- well, I asked and he said no way is he going out on the water this time of the year! Oh well--Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
