The winner receives this month’s vintage ‘barely coveted prize.” It’s a medium sized t-shirt from a 2010 geocaching event organized by Lackeys. It celebrates the 25th anniversary of the movie Goonies.

More than two dozen Lackeys voted to award the winner of the 32nd Geocaching.com Caption Contest a barely coveted prize. It was winter-themed – and coincidentally the voting took place on May 4th. [The joke goes, "May the 4th be with you."] Perhaps not so coincidentally, a Star Wars-themed caption won.

    The hide is a moving cache, surrounded by several red herrings, or are the yellow, green or blue. No matter. Contains an  unregistered geocoin for first to find.   robbitandpaul

    This is what happens when you open your 1,000th nano! 

  • Mustangwagz

    Cachers Cramp:: The act of uncontrollably finding geocaches everywhere, whether led to them by GPS or by second nature. Some signs of this act may include, Loss of sleep due to searching, Fumbling around with a flashlight in random places, Dreaming about geocaching and restlesness. Some Very rare cases, (As seen in this photo) include Random Snatching of small containers and shiny objects, or a strange color pattern and Markings on the Finger Nails.

    Cures for Said act: Dont need or want any, cuz Geocaching is a blast!!!!!

  • Oxymoron
