Geocache Description:

Following is a Geocaching Addiction Test 


Do you have an addiction to geocaching? Only you can answer that question. 

Take the following quiz to help put your geocaching in perspective. If you end up answering "yes" to three or more questions, you may want to take a good look how your life is affected by geocaching.

  1. Have you missed classes or work because of geocaching?
  2. Along those same lines, have you ever taken an entire afternoon for your lunch break because of geocaching?
  3. Do you have trouble going anywhere without first checking to see if there is a geocache in that area you have not yet found?
  4. Does the sport of geocaching come up in almost all conversations you have?
  5. Do you consider the number of geocaches you have found to be guiding your self-confidence?
  6. Do you use geocaching to help you relax?
  7. Have you left home without something you are supposed to bring (like your spouse) but never without your Geocaching bag?
  8. Do you log in to Geocaching.com as soon as you wake up to see if there is a new cache in your area (OK, then how about just before you go to bed)?
  9. Do you forget your spouses name, but remember the cache number to your favorite geocache?
  10. Have you begged your spouse to take you to the local dollar store to get more "log books"?
  11. Do you lie to others about how often you geocache?
  12. Has anyone asked you to "Sit down, we need to talk" about your geocaching?

We're here to help. This cache is a test to see how addicted to geocaching you really are.

Your goal is to not find this cache.

Can you resist searching out this, or any other "easy" cache? 

Show the world how strong you are. You can stop Geocaching anytime you want. Right?

Really you can...

"Fiiiind meeee..."

Did you hear something off in the distance... ?  Never mind.  It must have been the wind.  Well, on with your goal: 

First, be sure NOT to direct your car to the designated parking place on the side of the road at N44° 54.006'  W91° 37.708'.

Next, do NOT, under any circumstances, walk toward the next waypoint of N44° 54.129'  W91° 37.710'.  Once you have avoided getting to this location, make sure you do NOT head toward the extremely bent tree at N44° 54.160'  W91° 37.787'.  Do NOT search this tree thoroughly!  In this tree you will eventually find NOTHING!  What did you expect?  We're trying to help you!  Now you have another chance to recoup yourself and GET OUT of the area before you make the almost inevitable mistake of finding this cache.  Remember your goal?  

Your goal is to not find this cache.

With that goal firmly ensconced on your brain, do NOT now set your GPS to N44° 54.192'  W91° 37.660' where you will most certainly end up in a mad hunt trying to find this cache!  Remember, you are NOT supposed to find this cache because you do not NEED to find it.  You are NOT addicted to Geocaching, right?

Sadly, those poor addicted Geocachers listed below have FAILED this test.  In spite of the little smiley faces they have next to their logs, they are the ones we must truly feel sorry for:  After all, they are addicted to Geocaching!
