Geocache Description:

Let's make it clear. Geocaching is free love.


Freelove is Depeche Mode's thirty-eighth single. It was released on 2001-11-05 and was written by Martin Gore. The video was directed by John Hillcoat, but Anton Corbijn directed some short videos available on the DVD issue of the single. David Gahan stated that this song was the best one he'd sung since the 1993 single Condemnation.

The song is about one of the nice aspects of geocaching, the fact that it's free. You don't have to be a premium member to join. You don't even need to buy a GPS. We create geocaching together and we do it out of love.

Well, I won't go on and on about this. I'll let Depeche Mode tell it like it is and just provide some small comments to guide you through the lyrics.


If you've been hiding from love Cache owners hide caches because they love the game and their fellow cachers.
If you've been hiding from love
I can understand where you're coming from All experienced geocachers know this.
I can understand where you're coming from
 
If you've suffered enough Sometimes it feels like geocaching is becoming an equipment sport. People with more advanced GPS's, more expensive flashlights, fasteer cars, etc have an advantage. For example when it comes to FTF hunting.
If you've suffered enough
I can understand what you're thinking of Some people have smart phones and laptops to get information and submit logs out in the field. The list of expensive equipment useful for geocacher is long. And some people just can't afford such things. Others have the money but don't want to spend it all on geocaching.
I can see the pain that you're frightened of
 
And I'm only here The expression "free love" refers to the fact that geocaching is a free pleasure. Of course you can spend any amount of money on equipment, such as GPS, flashlights, clothes, telescopic ladders, travel bugs, etc. But the actual geocaching is free.
To bring you free love
Let's make it clear
That this is free love
No hidden catch No catches, just caches.
No strings attached You don't have to see geocaching as a competition. If you don't, you can take your time and make do with cheap or free equipment. You are still not any less of a geocacher.
Just free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love
 
I've been running like you It's easy to get caught up in the race and start spending money.
I've been running like you
Now you understand why I'm running scared  If you don't watch out you'll end up with an empty wallet.
Now you understand why I'm running scared
 
I've been searching for truth When searching for a cache, you cannot fool yourself. Either you find the cache or you don't. The truth is the truth.
I've been searching for truth
And I haven't been getting anywhere
No I haven't been getting anywhere
 
Hey girl
You've got to take this moment While on a geocaching trip, you find yourself living very much in the now.
Then let it slip away
Let go of complicated feelings Geocaching is a great way of relaxing and clearing your head.
Then there's no price to pay
 
We've been running from love When people do get caught up in the geocaching race, they do it because they love the game.
We've been running from love
And we don't know what we're doing here
No we don't know what we're doing here
 
We're only here
Sharing our free love We all share the free love that is geocaching.
Let's make it clear
That this is free love
No hidden catch No hidden catches, just hidden caches.
No strings attached
Just free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love

Please enjoy this free geocache! No expensive equipment is needed to get it. Just bring your own pen.
