Geocache Description:

Please see Don’t Do This! #0: Scratch that- DO THIS FIRST! (GC1HNB9) for more information.

There's a forest of LPCs to go get, just around the corner. This isn't one of them. Practice your high quality caching here and use some discretion, PLEASE. This has been muggled repeatedly. Swing it open, don't pull it off.

A Little Background

There’s a term for what this cache represents; I think it’s “micro-spew”. This particular hide gets hammered more than any other, mainly because it’s EVERYWHERE. You can’t go 1 mile in this county without hitting 20 of them.

Let’s be honest; you love it. You know you do, you just wish there was another way, something more sexy, maybe even a little challenging for once. Here’s your scenario: you’re out at the mall shopping for some reason or thing long since forgotten and your significant other ducks in while you wait plaintively in the parking lot for his/her return. You pull up the GPS and find just the thing to pass the time.

The problem is, it’s an LPC. You’re 50’ away and this is going to kill precisely 15 seconds while you recover the waterlogged and disheveled prize. No pen, of course, so you just have to wing it. You make a bet with yourself that you can guess which side it is on (1:4) or how many people have signed the log, just to make it interesting.

Please, for the love of god, make it interesting.

Like your very first time. Right? Don’t you remember how clever you thought this hide was when you first found it? Forget it. Those days are over. You’re here for the smiley and that’s it; just keep those expectations low and we will get along just fine.

What’s Wrong With It?

Actually, this isn’t so bad. It’s not that the LPC is awful, just ubiquitous. What “top-10 worst” list is complete without the LPC? Don’t worry. Even as I bash it, I have 15 LPCs on my to do list.

How Do You Fix That Again?

This is so easy it hurts. Get creative! Nobody enjoys a fake-out more than me. Take it a different direction, heck, hide it in the bulb if you can. Here, you're looking for a highly camouflaged M&M tube.

Better Choices in the Area

There is only one LPC. Now go get it!
