How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Co-ords accurate as possible with tree cover. Use your geonose and you'll find it if you are addicted. Owners requested daylight only. On private property with permission. No need to contact anyone unless you want. They know why you are there. They also know you are addicted.

Do you have a problem with geocaching? Only you can answer that question for yourself. However, taking the following quiz may help to put your relationship to geocaching in perspective.
If you end up answering "yes" to three or more questions, you may want to take a good look at how your life is effected by geocaching.

1. Have you missed classes or work because of geocaching?
2. Do you have trouble refusing geocaching?
3. Do you need geocaching in order to have fun at a party?
4. Do you use geocaching to build up self-confidence?
5. Do you use geocaching to help you relax?
6. Have you tried to give up geocaching and failed?
7. Do you crave geocaching as soon as you wake up?
8. Do you get into trouble because of geocaching?
9. Do you crave geocaching at a definite time of day?
10. Do you lie to others about how often you partake in
geocaching?
11. Have you gotten into financial difficulties because
of geocaching?
12. Do you often wish people would just mind their own
business about you and geocaching?
13. Do you check geocaching.com web site more than once
a day?
14. Can you drive past a Dollar Store without thinking
about geoaching?
15. Can you go to bed and fall asleep easily if a new cache is 'out there' ?

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.

We all know that there are those among us(and you know who you are) who, when they look at the page showing their 20 nearest caches, see nothing but a perfect page full of finds. Then that new cache comes along and spoils your pristine page. It sits there at the top of the list. Taunting you. Staring at you like a giant unblinking eye.
It calls out to you "Fiiind meeee..." You comply, even though the sun is barely peeking over the horizon. If you're lucky, you score FTF, and then race back to log it in and remove it from your top 20 list.

Ahhhhhh. Order again.

The question is, how strong are you? Can you resist searching out this cache. You have nothing to gain from finding it.

There is no invigorating hike.
There are no breathtaking views.
There are no cool first finder prizes or other cool pieces of cache swag to trade for.
The idea for this cache is not even our own.

The only thing you have to gain from searching out this cache is just adding another find to your total.

Show the world how strong you are. You can stop geocaching anytime you want. Really you can.

"Fiiind meeee..."

To post a find here...
The FTF is requested to post a 50 word essay as to why he/she is NOT hooked on caching.

ALL other cachers are requested to post a 30 word essay on why he/she is NOT hooked on caching . Let's have fun with this and see how good the excuses are. We all know we're not addicted don't we?

It seems that there are some fellow cachers out there that think they can log this cache without stepping out of the comfort of home. That's not the idea here. If you log this cache, you MUST sign the log book in the cache. If not, your log here will be removed. Cachers finding it after you will surely look to see if your name is there. Won't they?
But hey, no one here is addicited anyways. Right?
