I'm only new and haven't found one yet, but so determined that I spent so much time outside looking for one that I got sunburnt and damaged the surface of both eyes.... But I'm still thinking of driving for almost an hour to a new cache so I can be the FTF on my first find. Does that count? :D

Guess I can give my eyes a rest, someone found the cache today. Will still go look for it but not as pressing now.

Or when you drive 830kms and stay overnight in a country pub so that you can rescue 5 moveable caches that were taken to the bush and out of the game for the last 4 weeks :roll:

Irrational, surely not, just a Geocacher 8-[

But you supply the co-ords, so you can use what ever format you like :)

You're lining up at the checkout and notice that the woman ahead has birth co-ordinate tattoos ala Angelina Jolie. Noting the actual numbers you think to yourself "pfft.. that's nothing special, its only the two local hospitals".

Yeah a bit bitchy I know. :twisted:

You buy a new pair of hiking boots and are incredibly excited when you notice a set of co-ords inside the tongue.

Turns out they were for the company HQ in France. No there was not a cache nearby :(

You've been caching with your kids & stop at the supermarket on the way home. The lady at the checkout comments that you have bits of twig in your hair and asks the kids why they didn't tell mum about them. They look at her strangely then tell her that is normal for mum :D .

At the doctors surgery today talking to the doctor. 3y/o geo-son gasps and points across the consultation room to a bench on the other side. "Look daddy, a geocache!" I look accross the room at a sistema container the doctor is using to store some medicine. Try explaining that one!
