    I actually have a friend that works for a county roadways maintenance division. (Basically signs, potholes, striping etc).
    I was explaining geocaching to him, and he said “yeah, all those little things people shove in the stop sign poles?” He said they find them and have to throw them away, So another bit of advice may be to find a close location, but not the signposts, or archiving may be in the cache’s future.

    A better idea is to go ahead and use the signpost, but camo it so well that they don’t see it, and therefore don’t throw it away. It’s challenging to do, but it just adds to the fun.
