Funny DNFs in General geocaching topics Posted April 16, 2008 I've had two that were pretty funny, both involving my wife. I bought a Lowrance iFinder Go2 because my eMap was a pain for geocaching. As it started to get dark, I thought I would try to show my wife how to enter coordinates for one last cache. I pulled up the proper screen, gave her the GPS and let her input the numbers. I then told her to tell me where to drive. I sorta knew where the cache was by using Google maps. Anywho, she takes me across a parking lot and says its north of here. How far? Looks like its in the next parking lot. I look at the GPS and the cache is 3,000 miles away. She had punched in the wrong coordinates. Took a DNF that night -- had to come back during daylight to get that one. Next one was apparently in the fork of a tree, too tall for us to reach or see into. She was looking all around on the ground when I re-read the description and hint and figured out where it was. Took a DNF on that one as we had no way to confirm the location. Several days later we came back with a mirror and indeed saw the cache down in a hollow in the fork of the tree. I knelt on the ground and tried to get my wife to step up on my back to snag the cache. She couldn't step up for some reason, and wanted to go to the house for a ladder. I kinda got upset and told her I didn't want another DNF on this one. After much cursing, she somehow sat and then crawled up my back and finally got the cache, but I was in pain for a couple of days afterward. I'd have paid money to see that last one!
