Here are a couple off the top of my head...

You leave work in your work clothes to get an FTF only to arrive and see 200ft of bushwhacking...well it's an FTF isn't it?

When your idea of a great day off is driving all around Janesville.

When you go on vacation you set up notifications to get a first to find at your vacation destination.

You're scared of heights until those heights involve a geocache!

You see flashlights coming from 3 different directions when a cache is posted at night.

You know how to fold oragami (see McFarland caches)

I did this several years ago for a WGA picnic but it only needed a bit of updating. Enjoy!

You might be a geocacher if:

Your after shave/cologne smells vaguely of Deep Woods Off.
You drool uncontrollably if someone tells you they use a “Montana”.
You know what TFTC, TNLN, SL means.
You roll your eyes when someone says “Puzzle” and “Pine Tree” in the same sentence when describing a cache.
You see what caches are available in the area your business trip is taking you before making any other plans.
You leave to get a FTF after dark and only have the light from your GPS to find it…and you do.
You have a STF club.
You know to the tenth of a mile the distance of your longest traveling TB/Geocoin.
Your Cell phone has your phone a friends list by screen names even if you know them personally.
You create an event cache around your own wedding.
You think bushwhacking a quarter mile through a swamp that is heavily overgrown as “Good Exercise”.
You have ever been on a series cache and forgot that it was a series and had to go back to get the information for the final.
You know the requirements for a Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum EarthCache Master and have achieved at least one level.
You have your home coordinates in your GPS…just in case.
You own a TB hotel and discover the coins/TB’s that travel through it.
You think “nanos” are easy finds.
You have http://www.geocaching.com/ as your homepage.
You have EVER left your house in the middle of the night to get a FTF.
You have returned home from a cache and thrown all your clothes in the washing machine and walked naked through your house to shower and get fresh clothes.
You own stock in Garmin/Magellan and refuse to sell because the market will come back.
You have heard the song “Don’t tell my wife I’m out Geocaching” and agree with the lyrics.
You have ever been totally soaked or covered in mud finding a cache…when you shouldn’t have been.
You look for new Cache sites when out for a family drive.
You call your boss to say you will be a little late when actually you are going for a FTF.
You meet a fellow cacher as you are signing the log as FTF.
You check "cacherstats" when searching for a retirement location and find you will go from 83rd in a state to 14th and add that as a prime reason to retire there.

You go out to find a cache during your lunch hour ... end up sliding down a hill on your butt .. and return to work covered in mud .. better yet, the only thing they ask is "did you at least find it" ..

You skip Sunday School to find a cache. (Father, forgive me...)

OK, I just had a new one occur to me yesterday and I had to share.

You know you're addicted to geocaching when the trash can in your car is filled with burrs.

That's me! I've got two pairs of pants hanging up waiting for deburring too (too many burrs, might not be worth the effort!)

How about swimming for a FTF in 32 degree water. You have to read these logs. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=d9541281-863f-4a2a-ae88-9f4e2244f39f

Brrrr...
