WINNING CAPTION: "You must be at least this tall to find this geocache." Vyp’s wife

Geocaching can often be a search for what’s hidden in plain sight. Share your gift for clever captions in the 30th installment of our Caption Contest. You could earn a barely coveted prize. What caption would you write for the picture above? The image was originally posted on our Facebook page by Thorsten Skibba.

Submit your caption by clicking on “Comments” below. Please include your geocaching username in all entries. Then, explore the captions other geocachers have posted.

Barely Coveted Prize

You’re encouraged to ‘influence’ the voting process (*nudge*nudge*). “Like” the caption that you think should win. If you think your caption should win, convince your fellow geocachers, your friends, and family to “like” your caption. Lackeys vote from the top finalists to decide the winner of the contest.

The winner receives the ‘barely coveted prize’ you see to the left, which may actually be quite coveted. It’s is a vintage ‘100 Years of Scouting’ Trackable.
