Muggle: A non-geocacher in the vicinity of a geocache. The term often is used to describe impacts on a cache hunt. "I couldn't look for the cache because there were to many muggles nearby."

The term muggle has been around for decades and means many things in different enviornments; in the early part of the last century, among musicians, muggle was a refrence to drugs and drug users (specifically marijuana).

More recently, the term has enjoyed renewed popularity, mainly do to it's use in the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling where it refers to non-magical people.

Muggles are generally harmless, however, care should be taken to avoid revealing the location of a cache in their presence. Sometimes, caches are muggled (vandalized by non-cachers).

Some cachers do not like to use the word muggle, but it is rapidly becoming the norm when refering to those not informed about our hobby.
