I'm with you Dave, I just don't quite see the point.

Just a side comment to all those thinking of putting them on their vehicle. I had a set of magnets on the side of my work car announcing our business name and after seeing what magnets did to the paint on my work vehicle I think I'll pass. (Unless they have some magical power that helps me find more caches!)

I can see the light hearted humour behind these but at the same time one could quite easily be construed as being a bit of a tosser! I remember I first saw these in Canberra when McPhan turned up to an event with them on his car. We all got quite a chuckle out of it but I haven't seen him driving around with them on his car since. I suspect for the reasons noted above. :-"

I can see the humour in your post, but at the same time I could construe you as a tosser.

This thread is for those that would like to order some of these NOVELTY items, however they are regarded by their geocaching peers.

Can we put the thread back on track please?

That would make us all a bunch of tossers then! My vote has been lodged. :)

To stay off topic for a moment longer :stabby :stabby :stabby Matt mine have lived basically on the side of the Suzuki since I got them well over a year ago. Peeling them off to wash the car the weekend after the Mega (a few locusts to remove!) and the paint looked perfect and about the same as the rest of it.

That said the car generally lives in the garage and only comes out to play on weekends sometimes (I use the work car rather than doing the car shuffle if just going to the local shops) so sun damage doesn't tend to occur on the rest of the paint job if that is what you are referring to. They also don't get the opportunity to trap water under them on a regular basis if that is the cause of your problems.

Also something like "Geocache Field Management Vehicle" That's one of them that I have seen at Oz Mega.

Sometimes stealth is brazen or misdirection.
