Geocachers are the nicest people. I've had the pleasure of meeting many cachers, on the trail, on line, at events ... So I thought it would be fun to place a series of caches based on some of the cachers I've met since I started playing this game.
My first encounter with swamphog was in Marshfield, looking for a cache in Wildwood Park. Swamphog and his caching team were walking away from a cache as I was approaching from the opposite direction. After that chance near-meeting, Swamphog and I had a series of near-encounters while chasing after First-to-Finds. We sent messages back and forth by e-mail, but it wasn't until about 7 months after that first near-meeting that Swamphog and I actually met. We were both out looking to be First to Find on a couple of new caches ... he beat me to them both.
In May of 2011 I was FTF on one of Swamphog's hides, and he rewarded me with a special puzzle cache that he hid just for me. I asked him if he wanted the cache container back, to which he replied that I could keep it. That container gave me the idea for this series of caches, so I thought that it was only fitting that the first in the series be for Swamphog. The container is the one that Swamphog used for that bonus cache. There is only room for a log, so bring your own writing instrument. Please share your favorite Swamphog story in your log.
If I figured this out right, this cache should publish on Swamphog's birthday, so Happy Birthday Swamphog!!!
|Logging Etiquette: Geocache hiders sometimes go through a great deal of planning to place their caches. As a result, they'd like to hear your feedback on whether you liked or disliked any aspect of the hide, or if you feel that some cache maintenance is required. Single word, acronym, or emoticon logs may be easier when you have a lot of caches to log, but it doesn't tell the hider or other finders anything about your adventure (or lack thereof) in finding the cache. Please keep this in mind when entering your log.
