I'm sure we all have a story to tell of that something that you found out there while caching.
Not the cache itself, but something else...
How bout sharing it with us..
Here is my story..
I was looking for a spot to place a new cache that I had in mind for a while now..
I found a spot with an awesome view, and started looking around for that perfect little hiding place..
I noticed this overhang, and scrambled down a level to get in there..
Almost immediately I saw a spot that looked promising, and I edged nearer..
Hey, wait a minute... Behind a small bush I can see a cache container..
Even the rocks behind it looks like it was packed geocaching style, to hide it from view from the other side..
Now I know for a fact that there are no caches near this area..
I thought that I might have hit the jackpot... An FTF even before the cache was published..
Someone must be working on a listing, and I'll be writing in the logbook already.. How is that for Luck..
I removed the container from it's hiding spot, and opened it up..
It was filled with sand.. Well that was what my mind told me at first..
O.K. so maybe it is not a cache container, I thought, and the whole FTF idea got lost just there and then..
I've put it back, very confused... And then the penny dropped..
I took it out again, just to make sure..
It was ash.. This is an urn, with somebodies ash in it..
I immediately put it back, and for a moment did not know what to do..
It was creepy.. It felt awkward knowing that I stumbled onto the remains of a dead person..
It took me a minute or two to recover from the shock..
This was the last thing I've ever expected to find out there..
There was no plaque on the container..
The view from there is absolutely spectacular, and I can only presume that this person must have loved hiking in this area..
Obviously I placed the cache somewhere else..
