Geocache Description:

In 1981, Depeche Mode recorded a tribute to Sweden's 2009 geocaching sensation TimTim GO.


Most people's first reaction to this is: How could they possibly have done that?

The answer lies in the fact that, for Depeche Mode, time is not so much an irresistible force of nature as a small nuisance that makes it hard for people to correctly interpret their lyrics.

Well, fair enough. But why did they 29 years ago feel that a future geocacher deserved this kind of tribute?

It's not so strange. Just take a look at the facts. In February of 2009, TimTim GO got the first taste of an FTF. Just over 8 months later, he reached first place on the Swedish all time FTF top list. About a month later, he FTFed cache GC21BGX while listening to A Question Of Time. This ushered in a new era of even more intense FTFing in his life and made him deserving, not only of some extra kudos, but also of a 29 year old tribute.


Boys say go! Yes, we all say GO! As in TimTim GO.
Boys say go!
Boys say go!
Boys say go!
 
You don't understand Most people don't understand geocaching. Perhaps even fewer understand FTF hunting.
This is in demand But the geocaching community needs FTF hunters. Someone has to be the first to find a cache.
And I think that I have to show you TimTim GO has clearly shown the rest of us what FTF hunting is all about.
 
Try to look inside To get an FTF you have to be prepared to look inside anything.
Take me for a ride You have to have a nice ride that'll take you to new caches quickly.
In the day and the night get to know you You have to get out there whenever a new cache shows up, day or night.
 
Boys meet boys get together "Boys meet boys" is a metaphor for geocaching. In the olden days, it was almost exclusively a male sport. Getting together refers to event caches.
Boys meet boys it's forever Once you have started geocaching, it is very hard to stop.
Don't say no An FTF hunter can't be a naysayer.
Boys say go The FTF hunter must always be ready to go. Some of them even include the magic word in their names to make themselves remember... ;)
 
I could run away Our top FTF hunter is always on the run.
If you never stay
And the rain and the pain and the sorrow FTF hunting can be a wet and painful experience. And when you lose, it can be a saddening experience as well.
 
I'm not very sure When you set out on an FTF hunt, you can never be sure that you'll be first.
When you close the door
In the end it's the same as tomorrow And you can also be haunted by doubts. Why can't you just wait a little while? Why do you always have to be first? But a true FTF hunter never gives in to such thoughts.

The challenge for the rest of you is to snatch this one away from the tributee. Now go! GO!
