Wildlife Wednesdays: Light-Skirt Caches

Wildlife Wednesdays: Light-Skirt Caches

Recently I was looking up blogs about geocaching to follow. I found a link to a website that talked about light skirt caches. They are quite popular but they can also be dangerous, I found out. Check out the blog: 


His picture of an electrical burn victim was quite gruesome and most intriguing. Could that really happen during my happy geocaching adventures? Johnny Geo points out that light skirts are there to encase the housed electrical equipment and even though most of the time if you lift up the skirt the wires and electrical bits are contained, it doesn't mean that it is safe. 

I am a big geocaching advocate but this is a concern. Check out his blog for more in depth information and some grody and disturbing photos.
