|Cool site. I will be caching in Russia before too long. |
There is a problem with the legality of a GPSr there?
Yes and no. There are conflicting laws, generally unenforced, some of which require that a GPSr be downgraded to pre-SA precision, and some exempting personal-use varieties of GPSr's from the precision requirements.
I always bring a GPS when visiting, but I also avoid using it in crowded places.
BTW you may not be able to get a taste of Russian geocaching since their rules prohibit posting of caches in big cities (same common-sense avoid-the-crowd, stay-safe-from-cops-and-muggles line of reasoning but perhaps taken too far).
So unless you visit small towns / countryside, you aren't gonna be able to find any geocaching.ru stashes!
