An Evil Frog Prince Cache

Lamp post caches require minimal skill or intelligence to find and even less to hide. The only thing they are good for is to increase your “numbers”.

Some caches are hidden under the cover and require only a primitive mono-synaptic reflex response to locate the container. The more creative caches are magnetic nano-containers placed 20 feet or more up the pole. To successfully retrieve this type of cache, I started carrying a cane fishing pole in my car when geocaching.

When the Princess found out what the fishing pole was for, she sent me to a therapist.

My therapist suggested behavior modification therapy to assist in overcoming my intense dislike for lamp post caches. After weeks of graded exposure where I was required to visualize and eventually touch a picture of a lamp post cache, she said I was ready to use positive reinforcement to win victory over my aversion. Her assignment was for me to hide a lamp post cache and experience the joy of watching hordes of geocachers rush to the cache. Each email notification that the cache has been found serves to reinforce my joy and eventually aid in overcoming my hatred for lamp post caches.

Thank you for aiding in my recovery. Please replace the cache exactly as found so others can share in the JOY!

Be sure to bring a pen to sign the log. Posting a find without signing the log will result in a less than joyous deletion of the entry.

As you leave to hunt for the cache ... don't forget your fishing pole !!!
