Here is your chance to prove to the world you aren't Addicted to geocaching.
DO NOT LOG OR FIND THIS CACHE!!!!
Some people are just natural born geocachers. If you're the kind of person that spent your childhood playing spy games, exploring the woods behind your house turning over every rock to see what you could find, or just hiding everyday objects in out of the way places where nobody would know to look, chances are you were born to cache. We'll admit it, we love adventure and exploring ... that includes doing normally crazy things like hiking glaciers! Why? For no other reason than, 'why not?' Besides, the glaciers were there in WA and we don’t have any here in WI!
Many cachers just naturally have personality traits that lead to easily becoming hooked on caching. Maybe it's the thrill of taking part in something that the average muggle never has a clue about; maybe it's the chance to get out and explore the world. Let's face it ... whatever the reason, geocaching is addictive!
Are you hooked on geocaching? If so, this is your chance to overcome your addiction. How? Do not locate this cache, even though it's among the easiest around and right here in front of you begging to be found! If you can drive by, and are able to not search for this cache, feel free to share your success story by logging a note below! We can think of several cachers who will see this cache at the top of their nearest caches page, and their first reaction will be to go out and find it. We know who you are. You know who you are. We all know that it's easy to get hooked on this sport. But it's not an addiction if you don't want to quit, right? Well, what if you wanted to? We doubt you can do it! This is just one of the many warning signs of a geocaching addiction. Experts on the subject have identified a number of other warning signs to be on the lookout for including the following:
- You are familiar with words like ‘sltnln’ and ‘ftf.’
- You know the zip codes of all your out-of-town relatives off the top of your head.
- You actually look forward to visiting your in-laws.
- You no longer talk to your friends or relatives about geocaching ... none of them will allow it.
- You find yourself having to explain to your significant other why there is a never-ending shortage of Tupperware containers in the kitchen.
- Your driveway is covered with spray-painted cache box silhouettes.
- You begin making grocery purchases based on the items' usefulness as cache containers.

You have nothing to gain from finding this cache.
There is no invigorating hike.
There are no breath taking views.
There are no cool first finder tokens to find or other cool pieces of cache swag to trade for. In fact the cache contains nothing but a logbook, and pencil.
The only thing you have to gain from logging this cache is just another check mark and a number added to your stats
Cache is just large enough for the very weak to leave a small signature item, and that’s it!
Show the world how strong you are. You have CONTROL...You can stop Geocaching anytime you want. Really you can...
Oh ... if you find yourself too weak to resist the temptation to find the cache, be sure to re-hide it as well as, or better than, you found it to help others avoid the same failing. Best wishes not finding these caches!

I am not sure who should get proper credit for the first Do Not Find.
