+TeamGuisinger Posted January 12, 2006 Share Posted January 12, 2006 While reading another post about introducing new people to the sport I started thinking about a person who will never ever go caching with us again, nor would we invite his sour behind. I figure lots of you have stories about a bad caching trip with a newbie, share them, we could all use a laugh. I will try to keep our story short. We are friends with a couple who hike and camp allllll the time. Hello...have you heard of this incredibly fun game called geocaching? They were all up for it in the beginning. We planned to take them to an event about 2 hours away. We were a caravan of 3 cars, we all had radios and had a lot of fun on the way that morning, felt just like Cannonball Run. Got there, got signed in, everything was wonderful. You should know that the event was called "A Three Hour Tour" when I say that 10 minutes into it the complaints started. While this may be a surprise for the men, I'm sure it will not be to the women...the complainer was the man(who is i might add only 25 years old in very good health). Never in all my life have I seen such a whiney, pitiful, sissy-fied, make everyone else around you miserable human being. The snide comments and the grumbling under his breath lasted throughout the day. Even after I not so politely asked him to shut the heck up and try not to ruin the day for everyone he kept on. Made the day lousy for everyone in our group. We happily put him in his car when our 3 Hour Tour-ture was complete. Our friend got to drive him home and listen to him complain for the following 2 days. HE will never be invited to do anything fun again! Those of us remaining went on to climb the mountain pictured on the Ohio State Seal for a cache. Bad day gone good. Share your stories, I'm sure there are some great ones..... Quote Link to comment
