... you use your GPSr to go to the local store for a bottle of milk (and you label the final destination as M1LK) :angry: any other suggestions?

Why yes, yes I do.

I even have some more

And if you're interested, here are two pages of ideas.

And for an encore, a few more ideas

Oh wait, it's apparently double encore day, here at the forums.


As for new ideas, I got nothing.

You find a message in a bottle on the beach, pull out the message, sign it, and throw the bottle back into the surf.

You take a nasty, painful fall in the woods, leaving You bruised, scraped and the sorest You have been in years, and all You can think is "I HAVE to get home and log this!!!!!!!!"

Ah, I was just kidding. It's not the first repeat topic, nor will it be the last. Let's see, I'm sure I could come up with something clever.

You know you're addicted if...uhm....

Ok, I still got nothing.

You have waders strapped to your mountain bike.

After moving into a new house, you mark the waypoint of every tree, bush and building on your property.

(No, I haven't done this yet, but I sure am considering it...)

You consider moving or changing jobs because you've already found all the geocaches between your current home and work.

(edited for wording)

DITTO!! and some nights I don't sleep at all because I've got an idea. Heck, I'll lay there 'til I figure out how to build, hide, and camo the thing. Then I can finally sleep ... nope, dang, now I have to write out the description. Ahhh, geocaching.

I think I can beat this one:

You take a nasty fall in the woods breaking all three bones in your left arm in four places. However on your way to the ER, you find 10 more caches and resolve 3 previous DNF's.

Wifey offers you one more chance at reconciliation.....and you lovingly punch in the remaining cords
to a nearby virgin cache, watching her sweet face of disappointment grow smaller in the rearview mirror!
