That's what I call dedication. I saw this notification just before lunch and thought about it until I checked the maps. I knew what was here and there was no way I was attempting that.

I think this belongs in the "How far would you go for a FTF" thread.

My five year old niece is addicted to WSQs when she tells me on the phone that she's found a "new cemetery" and that I must take her this week!

On the other hand, I could start a list - you know you lost your addiction to geocaching when:

You drive past a signpost cache that you could not get previously due to the micro being frozen to its post.

I drove past a signpost today that had a micro frozen to the post the last time I attempted it back in January. Today it was nice and warm in Green Bay and I drove by that exact post. I looked at it as I drove by and didn't even bother to stop.

One of these days, I'll get the geocaching bug again and I'll be back out on the trails. Just not anytime soon, I guess, despite the nice weather.

Well Kyle did it again. He swam for a FTF (unsuccessfully) at No Man is an Island - II! That kid is dedicated. At least it was warmer once out. Maybe everyone should pitch in for a kayak? See the log at http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=3a35eb8d-626d-4058-b053-71bc8d2a2822

Ok, I finally got this one done. I thought about what birdin said and decided to drop the "addiction" part. I went with Jeff foxworthys line instead. GC3BWGM

Now I have a reason to head south instead of north to find a cache!

you fall about 40' down a very steep hill, stop from going into the river by hitting your head on a boulder and still sign the cache log on the way back up the hill. Then you talk about continuing your planned caching day after the doctor stitches you up...

You see the current coordinates for Hurricane Isaac on the weather channel and you think to yourself - "I'm not far from that longitude."

You know you're addicted when you drive down the street saying "there's a cache over there, there's a cache over there, there's a cache over there" as you point out previous finds.

And
You keep a whole head-to-toe spare set of clothing in the car, "Just in case".
Just in case something unintended happens while you are out caching
OR
Just in case you have to grab a cache on a non-caching trip, if such a trip exists anymore.

You keep spare clothes in both cars, but no tools or jumper cables.
Sad

You keep spare caching containers in your car, just in case you find a good spot to drop one.
