    But ... seriously now ..... I know what you're saying. There can ALWAYS be someone who sees it differently and wants to gripe

    As long as you return all your finds within two weeks it should be fine.

    what was that comment on public land ? if thats true then i want to hunt he property around the white house ? what are my chances ? what would i expect to find ? lets see theres a big fence around it. nobody is allowed to go picnic there. you cant even lie down in in the cool grass under a shade tree and take a nap. i wonder what the property taxes are ? has the value decreased ? i'll keep wonderin ? i wonder if the pres. drinks my brand of beer ?

    You could say a friend's kid got cut on a piece of metal (pull tab, nail, etc.) and you were just trying to make sure the area was safe, and cleared of trash.
    You are in fact digging & removing trash.

Sorry for being so long-winded...
    I some what agree with you mate!

    HINT Don't do this in Newport Beach Ca!!!!!!! Ended up with 9 count em 9 Life Guards, 3 jeeps, 3 cops in two units & a Life Guard Lt (I think he was) standing around for over 45 minutes debating the code. Ended up no one wanted to write the citation & have to explain to the judge and be embarrassed. There ya go! Your taxpayer $$$ hard at work.

    A trick I use for areas like libraries is when confronted I've got everything in my trash pouch in my hand. First thing out my mouth is "Let me go throw this trash away." Has defused many confrontations over the years.
    I also carry two live rounds of ammo in a separate pocket of my pouch that I have dug in the past, and if ever asked, I show the ammo along with the trash, the couple of times I've been asked, and show these, it's been, "Well...I hope you find something good".

    when i was younger - i did good at old libraries - late 1800s and early 1900s ones
    they had no AC back then and would hold readings outside a lot on their lawns

    Actually, I believe that if you return your finds within two weeks there WON'T be a fine!
