Cacheopedia got its start in May of 2005 when someone on the [[Geocaching.com Forum]]s posted a warning to the community about the growing danger of [[methamphetamine]] labs being found more and more often in places that geocachers wanted to go.  Someone suggested that there should be a place for geocachers can share such warnings and compare notes on ways to stay safe in the woods.  While they were at it, they could share cache hunting stories, tips, hiding methods, etc.  The idea for cacheopedia was born when someone suggested a geocaching wiki.  The site was started that day.
