Thread: Geocaching

    You make detours to kitchen & home shops “just to check the prices of the containers”.

    Slowly everything you own is being turned into a cache container or a trackable item.

    Family members keep wondering where their favourite keyring/soft toy/trinket has gone...

    When someone asks where you live you give the location in degrees minutes and seconds coordinates.

    Scrabbling around under a bush in some mud, in howling wind and rain seems like a perfectly normal and rational thing to do.

    You’d happily leave the comfort of your nice warm bed at 4 a.m. on a Sunday just to try and get a FTF.

    Going a week without being able to do a caching trip makes you grumpy and irritable.

    When out with friends you find yourself compulsively pointing out good places for a hide.

    friends? nah either they now make excuses to not come out or they've been bitten by the same bug!

    no trip is possible without first getting a PQ done for the place you are visiting.

    you surround yourself with likeminded maniacs!

    you get a large collection of pictures that just beg for captions!!!!!! :lol:

    You go to Tesco for essentials like Milk, Bread etc.
    Get to the Lunchbox/swaps aisle - wow they are on offer, must get a few.
    Return home - er where's the Milk??

    Driving down a country road, you are compelled to stop at that footpath/monument etc. - well could be a good place to hide a box. All the time looking out for good places for a cache.

    A trip anywhere involves consulting GC - well you might go near a cache!

    You watch the TV - shouting 'theres a cache there!'

    You keep a micro container, and your GPS in your handbag - just incase. (eeek please say somebody else does that&#33 h34r:

    The housework gets left, the garden is a mass of weeds - but hey, I've got a nice tidy pile of maps and filled boxes ready to go out.

    The ironing pile gets bigger, but the back-pack is neatly filled with hiking essentials and the waterproof jackets are always the nearest jacket to hand.

    Its wet and muddy - cant possibly garden/wash windows etc. - but if there is a cache up a steep slippery slope, hidden under wet leaves .....

    Would have never dreamed of going for a walk in the mist/rain, blowing gale - er but if there is a cache to be found .....

    You make sure "audible alert" is ticked in First To Find, turn the pc speakers up full, and leave the pc running all night - just in case.

    And - you get yourself a job that involves driving to surveys all around the county - and you plan your working week based on cache concentrations!

    And - you keep a stash of prepped micros in the glove compartment in the car.

    And - you take the GPS with you everywhere (even into the shops) - just so you can upload to Memory Map when you get home to see where you've been, and whether there's anything interesting nearby to drop a cache at.

    when you plan any trip or visit to friends/job/etc etc to include time to grab some caches .

    well you're saving the planet. combining two things with each time you go for a drive.
