[edit] What is an LPC?

The Lampost Cache (LPC) is a (typically micro size) cache that is hidden under the decorative skirt at the base of a lampost. These caches are often found in the parking lots of large retail businesses (e.g., Wal*Mart).

LPCs have become somewhat controversial. Some geocachers consider LPCs to be too simple, too easy, and/or too unoriginal. Other geocachers are generally happy to have any secretly-hidden thing to find using their GPS, no matter how 'unoriginal' such a hide may seem to someone else.
