As the article in FTF Geocacher pointed out you may not be completely right in going after hours. Without reposting the article I'll just say that's the sucky way our society has gone. Fortunately the cache I'm referring to is a puzzle cache so it's number of visitors is next to nothing.

But the principle and most of the teachers know about it. Does the custodial staff? I've posted in the description - Do you read every cache description?

The cache description tells you so much about the place and where the cache is that you don't need a GPSr to get it. But these people didn't read the description. And besides that, it's a good thing I did because when I went to get it I got the 3rd degree from someone there who didn't know about it. Fortunately the guy who did was also there that night.

      > I have not been to the cache in question so take all that I've said with that point of view. I think it's awesome that it is honoring a former teacher. I think it's great that it gets kids involved and teaches them something. I think it totally sucks that one of us could get in trouble for looking for a cache just because of the way society has become. Would this have been an issue 50 years ago or even 25 years ago? Nope. But it is now. Argh.
