How to Spot a Geocacher
- They’re the one constantly picking pine needles and cedar bits out of their coat pockets.
- They’re the one walking in circles around the spruce tree, while the dog waits on the trail.
- They are the one standing beside that lamp post, trying to not look suspicious as you walk past.
- They are the one that knows what a used ammo can, a rubbermaid container and a film canister have in common.
- They are the one carrying a plastic grocery bag around inside a film canister with the word CITO on it.
- They are the one muttering something about it only being a 1.5 / 2
- They have an insect shaped barcode on the back window of their car
- They’re heading outside with a GPS in weather that would keep the postman home
- They’re the one that can’t walk 100′ on a trail without saying “That would be a good spot for a cache”
- They are the ones standing under the bridge instead of walking across it
- They keep repeating the phrase “Why have you brought me here?”
- They have an XBox360, PS3 or a Wii, and it has an inch of dust on top.
- They hang film canisters in their Christmas tree.
