Its obvious Aitkin County has not not completed their research in viewing the geocaching sport/hobby as a income source and part of the "tourist industry". A sharp contrast too neighboring City/County promoting geocaching with hike/bike trails, geocaching events, etc. etc. As I recently viewed my Aitkin county property tax "increase" of 12.9%!!! It only solidifies the Aitkin County mind set of: If you can't tax/permit or license it? Heavily regulate or ban it costing the county in maintenance of rules/permits, or enforcement. (Knock! Knock! Aitkin County) Anyone home in the missed opportunity dept.? Just another wonderstruck geo-cacher hiking off into the sunset scratching his head concerning a (shot in the foot), resource losing decision being made by local government.

Better late than never! Very Happy
