    Q: What do you call fifty penguin muggles looking for this Arctic cache?
    A: REALLY! REALLY lost! (Penguins live in Antarctica.)

    Where’s the enemy – I know they’re around here somewhere…I found their cache hide? I’m sure they’ll be back to check on it, so I’ll hide behind this rock – they’ll never know what hit them!

    I don’t know how the muggles saw me, I was wearing full cammo.

    After finding the cache fully exposed next to the rock, the cacher covered it up better so no muggles would stumble upon it.

    New to geocaching, Kurt was incredulous to find if he was going to take the extreme weather survival kit from the cache, he would have to leave something of equal value behind.

  • SiNwYrM

    Allen couldn’t figure out why no one showed up for his Arctic LARPing Event, he even brought a dessert to share…

    Geocaching being used to teach GPS receiver usage to the Canadian Military on our far North Borders…..  After getting lost, this member stopped for a breather and a hot cup of hot chocolate beside the rock and actually sat on the cache container.

    Many people think that Ernest Shakleton set out to be the first person to cross the continent of Antarctica from sea to sea, via the pole, but they are wrong. He simply wanted to go GEOCACHING!

    Items needed to find this cache are mittens, milk lug to make snow blocks, white boots to hide your feet and a large club to ward off Polar Bears.

    A cache so easy even a blind man can find it.

  • Eric Beechem

    Maintenance needed…not on the cache, but on my mental health for the insanity of hunting tupperware to the ends of the earth!

    My entry: “You’re kidding? You want this rock on top of the cache?”

  • peanutlikesbeans

    The GPS says the cache is to the south. I’m at the north pole. Every direction is south.

  • peanutlikesbeans

    Oh boy, the FTF prize is a Snow Cone Machine!

  • Landy49

    Do I have .10 distance from the next closest cache?”

  • Armorfirelady

    Neither snow nor rain nor cold nor gloom of night stays these geocachers from the swift completion of being FIRST TO FIND

  • Batman1384

    If someone finds my toe… Please attach it to a Travel Bug to my home town.

    Intent on the FTF, George failed to notice the Polar bear arriving behind his back.

    Geocaching leads you to some of the coolest places.

    While I was geocaching, I decided to go Ice Fishing. My Travel Bug worked great as a lure.
