find the obscure reference to that one if you can!

As close as I could get.




I'm not sure what will kill the game, but posts like this might kill this thread... Oh wait... wrong thread.

Here's a great story from last night that I posted on MnGCA and I thought I'd share it here too:

We were out looking for a cache tonight and one of our local coppers stopped to see what we were doing. We explained and he helped us look and he ended up finding it. Hopefully we got him hooked on the sport. He'll probably be telling all his friends about the two crazy guys in the woods during a blizzard who were looking for tupperware.

The evidence:

Was at Navy Pier in Chicago searching out a cache when the Port Authority rolled up and stopped. I whipped out the cell phone and acted like I was on a call...they just waited. Finally, I "hung up" and the questioning began. We came to an agreement that I should move along. No, we didn't become Facebook friends either. They scared me.

Was in Wausau this past fall with a few cachers, near a pedestrian/bike tunnel searching out a cache while a few of the group went to the facilities at the truck stop. After a 5 minute search, 2 deputies roll up and begin the questioning us. They had reports we were taking the signs apart (?). Run (of Run and Search- not RunandHide) actually was asked to share his identification with the officers. The others walked up and laughed at us. The deputies weren't any help

I was in that group, and totally unlike me, I just kept searching for the cache! I can't believe I wasn't like right up there, yes-sir, no-sir. But they were talking with Run and didn't even acknowledge me, so why not keep searching? It was a DNF and the owner confirmed it was missing.

We were power caching along the road in the Ocala National Forest in central Florida a week plus ago. We got stopped by a cop who suspected we were caching, but wanted to be sure we weren't in trouble. We both went our own ways.

Later we ran into two different cops at a parking area as we went in search of two caches. They eyed us up, but did nothing. Later on down the road, we ran into them again at a parking area and looks were passed but nothing more came of it. We kept on caching down the road.

We stopped at a parking area further down the road and one cop pulls his vehicle right up next to us and gets out and starts walking over. Next thing we know another cop in his vehicle comes speeding up right behind our parked car, stops and the officers get out with their hands on their side arms and approach our vehicle.

They asked what we were doing as they've been watching us drive and stop, drive and stop.....we explained geocaching to them and showed them the cache we had just found. They were highly suspicious of us. Apparently some people like to hide things in the forest for others and it wasn't caching he was referring too. Come to find out these officers were with the Forest Service and not regular law enforcement as the first cop we ran into.

After chatting a bit about geocaching, football, and other things, they let us on our way and told us to have fun. That was the first time our vehicle was nearly surrounded by cops with hands on their sidearms. Our son Jacob thought it was cool. Very Happy
