Welcome back to Arkansas! I am the reviewer for Arkansas, so if you have any specific question about a cache placement, just send me an email at [email:1e3vl1ol][email protected][/email:1e3vl1ol].
First of all, the specific areas where permits are required are the state parks, the Ozark-St. Francis and Ouachita National Forests, and a few cities (there is a Forums discussion elsewhere on this). Also, wildlife areas and lakes under the control of the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission require their approval and their requirements are very restrictive (see another Forums discussion for this topic). Other than that, when you place a cache, just follow the Geocaching.com Cache Listing Guidelines/Requirements and you should not have any problem with my review of your cache. Note that most problems occur when cachers place caches too close to another one (less than 528 feet), or near a government building (like a courthouse) or school without explicit permission of someone in authority at those places, or too close to an urban water tower, or too close to any active railroad without some physical barrier. By the way, highway or county road right of ways in the national forests still require their review, although generally they don't require a permit. I'm sure that the members of ArkGeo can also provide some do's and don't's on things that I have not allowed.
Good luck and I look forward to seeing your new hides in my review queue soon!
