  • The GEEK Family

    Bwaa Haa Haa! Ammo cans make the best halloween treats. Swag Anyone?

  • Dw0123

    If we dress up in costumes, we will blend in with the muggles and we can get the cache.

  • Dw0123

    oops here comes some muggles stand still ” I am a mummy with pumpkin head” stand still here they are. Darn they were cachers not muggles, and they got the FTF.

    Trick or treat,

  • beagleforce

    Ahhhh I now will cast my geocaching curse on you all…bahahahahaha!!!

  • Eblack

    After an hour searching the lightbulb goes on in your head :) and you realise the cache was beside you all along :) D’oh

  • DSFan4Life

    “I’m the headless horseman of geocaching!”

  • duckeylee

    “How’s this for Stealthy?!”

  • Aksers

    While the Geocache thought it was a virtual, it was really only covered in fog, not really a ghost. The only thing worse is the mummy really DID think it was a jack-o-lantern.

  • Jeddarfelix

    “Your Mummy can enjoy Geocaching too!”

  • LMT000

    Ever since they placed a cache in his cript, Fred’s carefree days are over. he will never rest in peace!

  • Akhalembach

    “And they say I look wierd, look at that ammo can, can they actually call that decorating?!”

    “I can’t believe I got into this Jacko-Mummy suit, now this is what I call Stealth, those muggles will never guess IM in here!!”- HEHE Geocachin with style!

  • LMT000

    I can’t believe I had to unwrap so much log just to find an empty space to sign

  • Geoaegis

    I lose a pint of blood searching for this cache (the vampires were just awful tonight), but just as I was about to give up, out of the corner of my eye I saw the cache.

  • IDIFers

    Sure is hard to follow my GPSr when I have to keep my head plugged in

  • Jusncass

    Jack O’Mummy got really embarrassed after letting one rip next to the cache.
    (yes we cleaned off the can after the picture).

  • Muddy Buddies

    Well…the cache page did say “NOT to attempt after midnight”

  • Keats94

    I really wish I had participated in the 101010 event but thanksgiving was on our schedule.

  • Robert

    In yet another attempt to avoid being eaten, the yellow and red m&m guys did a pretty good job at disguising themselves this time and even won the couple’s costume contest.

  • phild31

    My home made super-hyper powered GPS emits no dangerous radiations, this was caused by alien muggles.

  • BriGuyNY

    After unwraveling the mystery, the final cache will make you history

  • The Neumanns

    Tommy is adorable as a Jack-o-Lantern mummy but didn’t Jimmy go as a geocache last year?

  • p1nch3rry

    The cache can’t be under the spider webs, that’s too obvious!

  • GrinNoCat

    This is on TB that is happy to get out of that ammo can!

  • David N

    The Groundspeak Lackeys have received your feedback are beta-testing a new assassin for those who pilfer your Travel Bugs.

  • David N

    THIS is why caches should not be buried. Jeremy will come after you.

  • b00111111

    He did the cache, He did the monster cache. The monster cache, It was a graveyard smash..

  • megarad

    Mummy, can I go out and CACHE tonight?

    (only misfits fans will get this one)

  • PapaLuigi

    I swear I put it back exactly as I found it!

  • Motrin Man

    PLEASE Mummy!!! We had rather do a night cache for Halloween!!!

  • Apres Vous

    Log: “Travel bug too big for cache. Left it within five feet of the coordinates”

  • Briata

    Help me get back in! The last cachers couldn’t fit me back in so they just left me here out in the open. I have to decide – my head or my body? What to do… What to do…

  • Briata

  • EXDNR

    Sorry I sneezed on the cache. Does any one have a tissue?

  • Alan248

    I don’t care if you need a Halloween theme for your new Travel Bug. Take that “Shrink” wrap and pumpkin head OFF of your brother !!

  • Goingcaching

    Caution: Some pictures may contain spoilers! This cache is ” Out the box!!”..

  • j-dub woychik

    Don’t you hate it when a ghost poops on your cache?

  • ZeiraZeira

    Jack: Darn, I was hoping it would have a bandaid in its SWAG. I cut myself getting past all those pricklies and spiders.

  • Lepew13

    FTF= Fright To Find

  • tumbleweed2

    Hey Jack, Mummy says the cache is right behind you!

  • Team-Baxo

    After searching the Cachlocation for ages jack-o-lantern was annoyed that it was the whole time beneath his feets.

  • Albanach

    It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark
    Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart
    You try to sign but terror takes the log before you mark it
    You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
    You’re paralyzed

    ‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night
    And no one’s gonna save you from the bug about to bite
    You know it’s thriller, thriller night
    You’re fighting for your log inside a killer, thriller tonight

    (moonwalks out of thread)

  • j1srus

    “Quick, put that pumpkin on your head, there’s Muggles coming1″

  • Flic

    The FTF was DOA when the ammo box opened on its own. The police confiscated the attractive nuisance.

    If ghost vomit & mummy guts don’t bother you; and you Don’t Fear the Reaper, then this should be an easy find. FTF gets an Electric-MumKin complete Power-PLANT.
    It’s alot harder to find when the Fog-Machine is turned ON!

    This Halloween I’m getting all wrapped up in geocaching!

  • http://twitter.com/TMAC_9127 TMAC_9127

    Ma..Somebody took our Mummy head! It’s ok sweetheart..they cached the pumkin head instead.

  • http://coord.info/GC2F350 THRAYMIN

    If ghost vomit & mummy guts don’t bother you… and you Don’t Fear the Reaper, this should be an easy find. FTF gets an Electric MumKin complete with Power-Plant.
    May have to raise the difficulty if the Fog-Machine starts working.
