    The GPS is my shepherd, I shall not get lost. I pass through green pastures; and beside quiet waters. The adventure restores my soul; WAAS guides me in the paths of others. For Geocache name’s sake… though I walk through the tunnel of the shadow of darkness, I fear no Muggles; Your maps and coordinates comfort me. You prepare the SWAG before me in the presence of my Waypoint; You have anointed my path with discovery; My cache overflows. Surely good things and kindness will follow me all the steps of my way, And I will celebrate in the find of the Wherigo Cache always.
