The expression “have you lost all you marbles” has several synonyms that aptly describe and exemplify the meaning of the phrase. Some of these, to give you an example are: “are you bonkers?”, “have you gone nuts?”, “are you completely out of your head?” and more commonly, “ARE YOU MAD?”
Can you remember the last time you have asked yourself this question while caching? Was it while you were furrowing through a narrow tunnel? Getting torn to shreds by particularly nasty thorns? Hanging off a rock ledge to reach a little more? Driving an endless number of kilometres to check on a cache that someone has logged a not found? Or perhaps climbing a particularly nasty quarry wall? Or perhaps going into a small cave to claim your prize? Or even perhaps while you were contemplating driving your car through particularly nasty terrain to get closer to a cache? Anyway, I am sure you know the feeling.
Another occasion that this phase is likely to come up is surely when you tell your non-geocaching friends about the sport and they, while they may not say it out loud, think to themselves that you have lost it completely. You can certainly see it in their eyes.
This cache is dedicated to the “mad geocacher”. While it is not located in a particularly beautiful spot, the difficulty is low as is the terrain difficulty, it will certainly make you raise the question “am I mad to come to this place and grovel through dirt and trample through rubbish to find this little box, using high tech methods for me to gain such a low tech prize?” This cache will certainly drive you off the edge or make you “regain some of your marbles”. Please enjoy!
The cache can be considered small in size so bear it in mind when picking out gifts to exchange. Gifts smaller than 3 cm will be ideal.
- Age for this cache: 3-100.
