Geocache Description:


One of the best things about being a cache owner is reading through the logs on your own caches. This cache is all about the logs and now is your time to shine! When you write out your log I want you to think of the funniest, craziest, most extreme or just eye-rolling experience you've had caching. Of course all legitimate finds are accepted, whether you complete the sentence or not. This is for fun! This is in true Jeff Foxworthy style, please complete this sentence:

"If you've ever _________________________, you might be a geocacher."

To get you started, here are some of my own.
--If you've ever stuck your hand in a cactus but ignored the needles and kept pawing around looking for the cache, you might be a geocacher.
--If you've ever hauled your family through a forest right after a rainstorm while they're all still dressed from church so that you could capture the flag before anyone else got there (GC2RVAF), you might be a geocacher.
--If you've ever been covered in poison ivy but still repeatedly went digging around in the woods, you might be a geocacher.
--If you've ever stopped shopping at a particular store because they did not sell camouflage duct tape, you might be a geocacher.
--If the trash can in your car is full of burrs, you might be a geocacher.

And here are some (paraphrased) courtesy of different WGA (Wisconsin Geocaching Association) members:
--If you've ever slipped out during intermission of a concert to find a geocache, you might be a geocacher. (BigJim60)
--If you've ever driven 24 miles round trip from the cottage to the nearest WiFi connection to check the Geocaching.com site for new caches, you might be a geocacher. (Northwoods Tom)
--If you've ever planned your vacations around major caching events, you might be a geocacher. (jahnfamily)
--If your after shave/cologne smells vaguely of Deep Woods Off, you might be a geocacher. (CommanderUSN)
--If you've ever called your boss to say you will be a little late when actually you are going for a FTF, you might be a geocacher. (CommanderUSN)
--If co-workers no longer ask “how was your weekend” instead they ask “how many caches did you find”, you might be a geocacher. (cheezehead)
--If an Easter Egg hunt at your house involves teaching the kids to download waypoints, you might be a geocacher. (cheezehead)

OK, I could go on and on but instead that is your job. Let's hear some good stories!

This cache is located at the front of Minooka Park, part of the Waukesha County Park system. This is a great park with lots of hiking trails, a swimming beach, dog exercise area, archery, fishing opportunities, groomed cross-country ski trails in the winter and lots of picnic areas. Plus, there are lots of opportunities for caching in the park! The park is open from sunrise until 10 PM daily. You will have to have a Waukesha County Parks sticker or pay an entrance fee. You can find the fee schedule here: (visit link)

Waukesha county parks require permission before a cache can be placed. This cache placement was approved on 2/23/12, permit #20126

Congratulations to sevencards on yet another FTF on one of my caches. And his run out here gave him a good story for his log. :-)
